No Footprint Too Small...


How was your week?  Hope it was good!  It's Friday again, and I'm so glad for Unity FWF.

Today's card was made for my dear friend from Singapore, who visited me last week.  She had just lost her mum the same week she was due to fly out to Perth.  I felt her pain and loss.  I'm just so glad she was able to come for a time of rest and a holiday.  I hope our short time together eased her grief a little - we laughed, cried, talked, listened and ate so much!  I suppose this is the true essence of a wonderful friendship.

This is yet another of Phyllis Harris' stamp set - Too Beautiful for Earth.  I never thought I'd ever use it, for a card, but I'm so glad I had the set.  It's a beautiful image, and so fitting to remind us that each of our lives has meaning, and purpose and hope.

I wanted lots of white space in the card, and kept it really simple.  It's a small piece of my heart for my dear friend.

Thank you for visiting me.  I hope to visit your blog and can't wait to be so inspired with your creativity!

Have a lovely weekend!
Kary
