Island Dreams


It is the beginning of a new week, and the year continues to fly by!

When the stamp set "My Island" was released from Gina K. Designs, my heart immediately swooned! No matter where we live, I will always be an ocean girl. The majestic mountains with snow, the green lush valleys with meadows and deer, the swaying golden crops in the autumn sun - everywhere in each season touches my heart. But the ocean always calls to me, and me to it.

This is a thank you card for a dear friend who sweat side by side working on our kitchen with Bruce on a very hot and humid day. We are grateful for so many friends!
