Footprints in the Sand....

It's never an easy task, but there will be those certain times in your life you must do a sympathy card and that was one of those days for me yesterday.  A long-time friend past away yesterday.  He was a true fighter and kept his sense of humor till the very end.  He will be soooo missed.  He was a lover of the sea, mountains and the golf course. 

The image is from Lighthouse Pyramage from Stampin Dragon.  (The inside has the old time favorite "Footprints in the Sand" along with a sand dollar cut-out.)  But, I must tell the truth....my friend Cheryl brought me a beautiful bag upon her visit to South Carolina.  I couldn't find anything as beautiful to use for my card.  So, the love she put into this bag, I lovingly took the lighthouse off to use on my card to be sent to my friend's family. I told Cheryl what I had done....I wanted her to know it is with highest respect and admiration of the wonderful bag she made I felt the need to "pass on" a part.
