My Heartfelt Thanks to You!

(Warning! This is a long post full of amazing cards!)
What can be more touching than this? I got an unexpected flower delivery today. It turn out this beautiful bouquet of flowers are from my Hero Arts Hostess sistas! All of us live all over the place from Ontario, Michigan, Indiana, Alabama... to UK! I was simply speechless. A tear (ok, just a tear) rolled down my cheek after this beautiful sight! Thank you, Judy J., Deborah N., Lin B., Cathy A., Sarah M., Lucy A., Tiffany E, Kathy R. and last but not least, Karen P. I wish I could give you all a BIG BIG hug! I thank you for thinking of me during this time.
After saying my final good-bye to my Dad from my trip to Taiwan, I found myself with many beautiful and thoughtful cards pouring into my mailbox. These cards from friends, particularly from the Hero Arts Flickr Group, have graced my shelves. They brought me so much comfort. I've decided to share their cards with you and thank them for being such dear friends! It makes me smile as Judy Jung BOUGHT a pop-up card...I think she really wants to comfort me in a very special way :)

WOW VIRGINIA! Your cards from the caring Hero family are just BEAUTIFUL and I can see their "hearts" in each one! Thank you so much for sharing them, Virginia. I also can just SEE you with your "tears" rolling down your cheeks, Virginia. You have such a soft and caring heart and are touched by anyone thinking about you. It's a virtue to be that way, Virginia. I hope that each day finds the pain lessening with the passing of your Dad. I know that he was so proud of the Daughter that you are and wouldn't be surprised at all of the friends that you have attracted through card making. God Bless You, Sweet Virginia.
Love, Karen xoxoxo
