Sometimes a "Sista" just needs a shoulder...

In this case, it is actually my sister.  She is having some medical tests run just to eliminate anything serious, so we are all keeping a positive attitude. At the same time, it is easy to allow yourself to get depressed and feel sorry even before anything is known...  I just want her to know I'm here for her, whatever the outcome (which I'm sure will be fine)
I refrained from using bling or pearls, since she does not like either on her clothes or cards!  But I thought the vintage laces and buttons would add a certain element of time having passed....lots of time...lol!
I actually" repurposed" a greeting card I had received from a friend.  Shhh - don't tell.
I love the layers of colors with the cepia photo!  These two girls could have been us, they look so much like the "Garber girls". I hope this brings a little smile ot her face over the next few days while she waits to hear from the dr.

The sketch I used for inspiration was from Skipping Stone Designs.
Various laces, ribbons, papers and embellishments were used, most from my stash pile.  The main item used was the sentiment stamp "To Cheer You" from
 the Skipping Stones set "Always Here".
Please keep your fingers crossed. I would really love to win Heartsong!
