PDCC#83 "A Sweet Farewell"

Inspiration photo

Hi there!

I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day holiday weekend.  Thank you to all the vets out there!  It's truly a blessing to live in this country!  Last night I made a card to honor sweet Sarah Anderson who is leaving PDCC. I stamped the background with three different flowers from Close to My Heart(Dreams Come True) collection.  I must tell ya my little enabler friend,  Nancy, asked me to go to a Close to My Heart party.   And, of course, yep you guessed it I couldn't help but order the stamps we used at the party!:-)  I think these flowers make for a lovely background.  I added some black satin ribbon, border punch, and pearls.  The sentiment is also from the collection.

I always enjoyed looking at Sarah's wonderful creations.  I truly admire her sense of color and style!  I wish the best for you Sarah!  Good luck to you on your new adventure of working at the art cafe!
