Purses and Men

A coworker and friend of mine recently made a split with her live in boyfriend of several years. It was a situation where they were both at different stages in life and they realized they’d be better as friends than a couple. I wanted to give her a card that was somewhat light hearted, but also let her know I was here if she needs me. Even though our brains know a decision is best for us, our hearts can still hurt.

I’m so fortunate to be able to play with a completely NEW stamp set from Skipping Stones Design (so new it doesn’t even have a name yet). It’s a great girlfriend set and I’m honored to give you a sneak peek.
