Who doesn't get stressed from time to time. Just a few words of wisdom to help you cope until you make it to the other side. And you WILL make it because nothing lasts forever...


This card was made for a lady named Shelly. I never met her, but she was a friend of a
friend of mine. I was asked to make her a card because her friends were throwing her
a party so she could have her "flowers" while she was still here to smell them. She told
me her favorite color was red. Shelly had terminal cancer. Very sadly, Shelly passed
away right before Christmas. My friend told me this card touched her...
