Naturally, this event calls for a significant card and I think that Hero’s True Friends Background stamp covers the subject rather well. Some lovely die cuts, a whimsical tassel, and some very special beads (see below) completed the opportunity to send her this piece of my heart.

*When Carole’s mother passed, Carole was sorting through her jewelry box and found a broken string of lovely garnet beads. I was quite honored when she gave them to me for possible use on my cards . . . even more so as garnets are my birthstone and yet I had never owned any. I have loved using them on very special cards for very special people – like this one for Carole herself.
