You Are Amazing Ann

For our Christmas Program at church and young 15-year-old girl played Greensleeves on the violin. I have not heart that caliber of playing outside the professional arena, she was amazing. Such beautiful runs and high clear notes in perfect pitch. I brought tears to my eyes and helped me feel the True Spirit of Christmas. She also did a violin obbligato the the women’s trio piece that I sang in. I know that kind of talent takes hours and hours and hours to accomplish. I wanted to send her a not expressing to her my gratitude for her willingness to sacrifice her time and to willingly share her talent. Her favorite color is blue, so I searched through the paper in my stash that was perfect, with splashes of yellow. I recently purchased Simon Says Stamp’s A2 Thin Frames and cut it from the same gold mirror cardstock as the sentiment. I quick and easy, yet beautiful card with such lovely patterned paper.
