Miranda's wedding...




Hi friends...I feel so honored to have been asked by my sister to make this card. Well, actually, I think I sort of strong-armed my sister into asking me (LOL). Dee's best friend, Sue, died several years ago after battling breast cancer...leaving a young daughter, Miranda, and 2 young sons. Sue's little girl is now a lovely young woman...and she's getting married in a few weeks! Now, I never actually met Sue, but I know my sister loved her...and I love my sister...so making this card for my sister to give to Sue's daughter was very special for me. I have decided to enter Miranda's card in this week's Just Magnolia "Let's get sentimental" Challenge HERE. I am also entering this card into 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog - challenge #2 "Strip it down" HERE. I really enjoyed making this special card...thanks for stopping by for a peek. Pat
