My dear friend Sandy has been wallowing through some heavy trials lately – both the financial kind and some of the emotional variety as well, especially with the death of her beloved dog Maggie. She was in need of a more supportive kind of birthday card than the usual, so I came up with this one . . .
She loves African art, so I paired an African carved border strip from Magenta with a couple of feathers I still had on my worktable from my current feather fixation. Along with some gently wise and timeless words from Emily Dickinson, I think she’ll be happy to get this . . .
