My dear Linda, you always do such steller work and this is no exception...the papers are lovely with the color combo on Valerie and your coloring is the bomb. By the way I finally broke down and bought 4 copics this past weekend, now to learn to use them well and on to another addiction.lol I always will remember what you told me at the stamp convention last year about how to buy them. Thanks and thanks for sharing your beauty with us all.

Colleen said...

Linda,
I'm still in shock! You girlfriends really pulled one over on me. I had no idea. I'm speechless to honored by so many friends. My daughter would be so happy to know that there are so many wonderful gals thinking of us. This card is stunning and I gladly accept this gift and can not thank all of you enough. You have made what was a very dismal week a heartfelt joy! Thank you so much

Hello Linda! Crissy here, the one who drew Valerie's Gift! I have hopped through all the blogs and have come back to leave comments. Let me say first of all, that I have never before done a blog hop with tears streaming down my face. But I sure did today.
What is even more significant that you may not realize, is that I also have a daughter named Valerie. And so I feel there is even more of a connection there.
The fact that I could be a part in touching Colleen in this way has made me feel so emotional, I can't stop crying.
I go about my life, not really thinking about small acts of kindness having so much impact in another person's life. When Denise (of Whimsy Stamps) and I agreed we had to name this stamp after Colleen's daughter, we had no idea of the ripple effect it would have.
There is such a significance to the things we do, whether good or bad. And today I was honoured to see some of that right before my eyes. Thank you for doing this for Colleen, and thank you for honouring and multiplying the small act of kindness from Denise and I. I am really touched that I was able to be a part of it behind the scenes. What a gift you have given not only to Colleen, but to me and Denise as well. Sending hugs to you and your friends.
Crissy Armstrong
