This woman is a horse. That's what we call her. This is her doing what she loves to do. Garden and take care of the back yard. It's her territory. She will be turning 67 and I know most days she has more energy than I do. A little about her. She was born in Mexico and came over when she was around 7. She met the love of her live, married for 22 very short years and buried him 16 years ago. 10 years ago I moved and said to her that she had taken care of me all her life so now it was time for me to take care of her. She sold everything and moved with me. Best thing ever! I love her dearly and owe her everything that I am....
( Look at the dates on the pic.. 12/4/09 Dec. and see how bright and sunny it is. That's why I live in AZ. )
So here is the card I made for her. The background paper isn't really paper! It is fabric. It's fabric but like contact paper. I took a picture of the paper and the back of it so you can see how it came. I have no idea where I got it. If anybody recognizes it let me know. I would love to get more of it. If you look closely you will see it is frayed at the bottom of the card.
The Rose stamp is from at SU set called Fifth Ave Floral.
