It's been a rough week for saying goodbye.  An anniversary of the passing of someone dear.  Another family member leaving us.  And one of my best stampin' buddies & fans lost her mom. 

So here's the card, plain & simple.  Look super close to get the real message.


This was made with the Stampin' Up! Thoughts & Prayers stamp set #113252.  The corners were made with the Stampin' UP! Photo Corners Punch #109042.  That's Faux Layering with More Mustard. 

Gail-2010-Close If you look closely in this picture, you can see that Ann wiped away the Chocolate Chip ink off this one leaf with her finger & colored it with her Old Olive Marker.  (You can always click on any picture & see a closer look.)  She put it on there as a small sign of hope that better things are to come.

And they are.
