Card Of The Week – A Beautiful Life

A Life Well Lived

Card Of The Week – A Beautiful Life

Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! This week, I was saddened and shocked to learn that our dear Aussie friend Eliza of Queenartoypia is no longer with us. Through the magic of the Internet, and the fellowship of WOYWW, Eliza blessed and enriched so many of our lives.

My heart always brightened whenever I visited her and Yoda the Cat or found a comment from her on my blog. I’m happy that Eliza spent her last moments with her friend DeDe of Dizzartology, doing things that brought her joy.

This week’s card – A Beautiful Life – celebrates the beauty of a life well lived and is bursting with the vibrancy of the bright summertime colors of pinks, fuchsias and purples and the flowers that Eliza so loved.

The quote – stamped from Unity Stamp Company’s awesome All About Hope stamp set – reads:

Beauty Comes From A LIFE Well Lived.

Beautiful Life - Supplies

As we remember Eliza and celebrate her life, may we also remember that the times we spend with one another are precious.

I intend to spend each moment that I can with the people I love, doing what truly matters.

I hope that you will too.
