Hey! I hope you had a wonderful holiday.
I try not to share non-stamping stuff here much. But I just wanted to tell you about someone who received many of my cards over the years – my Grandma. She passed away a year ago today… at 100 years old. Married 74 years before she lost Grandpa. She missed him and wanted to be with him and Jesus. And although we miss her, we know she is happier with them.
She was the kindest lady I have ever known. Proud of her family. Devoted. Generous. Always had on rose-colored-glasses – only saw the good in people. Faithful. But above all, she was an amazing mom. She raised my mom to be the wonderful mom that she is. I can never thank her enough for that…
And I also wanted to thank a sweet angel named Debbie. She noticed that I asked for a goat from World Vision for Christmas. And, thanks to her, I got one. What an incredible and thoughtful gift. And what a great way to help someone out in need so far away. A big big big hug to you, Debbie. You are an angel. (If you are looking for any gift ideas, I highly recommend checking out World Vision – a great organization. The kids exchanged gifts with their cousins via this site.)
Now, time for a card share. :) Just one I made with scraps the last time I was at my stamping retreat. I love THESE greetings from Papertrey Ink…
