Missing You

 Thanks for stopping to visit!  My Grafico Halloween Challenge is still open until midnight October 7th. If you have not linked your Halloween project just click HERE.
This week we were fortunate to receive the following images:  Green Fingers.

These images remind me of Spring Planting time. The empty chairs makes me think of friends who no longer live close by so that we can chat. These were my thoughts as I designed the following
 Double Twisted Easel Card.

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. ~Elisabeth Foley

DP,CS' ribbon: Michael's
Buttons: Vintage

This card is simple but stunning and folds flat for mailing. It will certainly impress the recipient! I hope that I have inspired you to make one in the near future.
