For my sister
I just heard yesterday that my sister was injured as a result of Friday's tornadoes in OK. She lives about 40 miles from what I thought was the path so I had not really been overly concerned. However, they had been in the underground shelter some 100 yards away from the house. When the warnings cleared, she was opening the trap door when the wind caught the door - which hit her in the jaw. I was not able to get a lot of detail as she could not talk much - she at least needs a fair amount of dental work. So I am sending her this card. She enjoys nostalgic items so this digital image is great for her - sorry, I cannot locate the original in my files so I do not know the artist. It is a precolored image - I touched up the flowers and pump. (Thanks, Suze - it is from Beccy's Place.) I used a LifeStyle crafts leaf EF, and the Cheery Lynn Wreath Strip die. I really like the versatility of that die - purchased at Joan's Gardens. The flowers are Petaloo.
