Addie's card

This has been a very sad week. My best friend Phyllis called me the morning of the 29th to tell me that her granddaughter Addie passed away. Addie was born on 2/20/10, just weighing 1lb. 7 oz. Such a tiny tiny baby. She fought hard for 5 long months. Her Mom, Nikki told me that on the day she died, Jacques (Daddy) laptop was on and out of nowhere, "Somewhere over the Rainbow" started playing. She even heard a little girl laugh. So when it came time to make her a card, I knew I didn't want to use a flower stamp or anything like that for a sympathy card. So I commissioned Tammy Thompson to make me a custom digital image. I love what she came up with based on this story. The supplies on this card are all Stampin' Up! with the exception of the image and the pink flower. But I did use my Big Shot to cut the fabric, which is from a felted sweater! Happy Stamping & Knitting!

The card is lovely and such a great tribute to a heart wrenching event. It's obvious your friend is very lucky to have a friend like you in her time of need!

Tammy does great work, and the image and card are beautiful.
