Peace On Earth


I love the purity of an all-white card.   It reminds me of so many good things in life:  freshly-fallen snow, a little girl's dainty eyelet dress, a lavish bridal gown, a new beginning.


With the sad, tragic aftermath of  Hurricane Sandy affecting millions of people (whether they directly lost something or someone, or indirectly feel the effects), the sentiment on my card today reflects my inner thoughts and wishes:



Here's hoping that all who were in the path of the hurricane may have a fresh beginning.
