City Crafter
has a white challenge this week - all white with only one other color allowed !! I love these kinds of challenges.

This is a very sparkly card, though that is hard to see here.

I had one person in mind when I made this card, and that is my bf from high school, Margurite. She and I have stayed in touch for 40 + years, though we have only seen each other twice in all that time. She always sends me the most elegant Christmas cards.

This is for Margurite. Not only was she a wonderful bf when I was young, she is a person I admire a whole lot for all that she has accomplished. She put herself through law school at Boalt Hall (Berkeley), and worked in public transit for many years. She is a jazz aficionado, and politically savvy. One smart lady. Oh, and she told me she loves my blog too - how can I NOT think she is amazing !!!

To all our bestest friends ever, old and new, as different as we can be - a New Years toast to you all !!
