Peace and Comfort For a Friend

Hi Ladies! How's your Wednesday late afternoon going? It's such a beautiful day today, I just love the sunshine! I made this card for a friend at church. She has had it very, very, rough for the last 6 months or so. Her young daughter just finished up all her treatments for breast cancer. She just returned from out of town after celebrating the last treatment and came home to some very sad news that her mother only had a few months to live. Well, this past week her mother died. She has really gone through a lot and I wanted to make her up a card. I hope it picks her up even if it's for only a few seconds.

Close up...I really like using pearls!...(I think you know that by now.)

Thinking About Paris

Ahh, Paris!!! Love this city!!! With what's going on in the news with all the flights being canceled, it's making me think of our trips to Paris, and many more places in Europe. Our first trip overseas was for our 25th Anniversary. Can't believe it's been almost 5 years ago. We flew into London and rode the EuroStar Train over to Paris. What memories we have made with all the trips we have taken! Here's to Paris!
