Let Loose

Just an easy and quick card to share today.  This is going to someone very dear to me who lost her husband this year.  This will be her first Christmas without him, so when her family leaves after the holidays, I plan on sending this to her.  You mind can wander into dark places when you are alone, so I hope this will brighten her day.  I'm going grocery shopping today, we have single sailors coming over on Sunday, so I have lots of baking and prep work to get done today, plus I need to help Santa on his gift for the kids, so I feel a trip to Costco coming on.  Have a terrific weekend!

It certainly is the little things that make a friendship.

I love the use of the brown paper. Very warm and touchable.
