I know that it is Tuesday and time for another UDI Color Challenge. This week I used our color palette and create a card with special meaning.
Our colors for this week are:
- Basic Black
- Old Olive
- Always Artichoke
- Pear Pizzazz
It is with a VERY heavy heart, deep sadness, and real regret that inform you all the my dear friend, colleague, and the very FIRST member of the Stamp-Patty’s group, my friend Ali, has passed. I was able to spend three afternoons with her this past week and I had no idea the end was that close! She and I shared many laughs, we of course talked about stamping, the upcoming new catalog, and me helping her sell her retired goods! You may recall that several weeks ago I held a fundraiser for her and her family. I was able to raise $500 at that event.
Ali was the mom of 6 awesome children! I have had the pleasure of being the teacher for 4 out of the 6 so far. She was married to her best friend, Chris, for almost 25 years. They were planning a special get away in October for their 25th anniversary. Words can not express how sad and disappointed I am that such a wonderful, loving, and much needed lady could be taken from us! May she be always remembered and cherished. I will be planing another fundraiser soon so that I can help her family with final expenses. I want to thank all of you for helping to help her and her family. You are the BEST friends I could ever ask for!

I created today’s card for Ali’s husband Chris. I created it using My Digital Studio.
