Judith was a bold, vibrant, fun loving and life loving woman.
I never had the pleasure of meeting Judith in person. But I had the privilege of getting to know her on a rubber stamping e-mail list, RST! (Rubber Stamping Together!). Judith faced more trials in life and overcame more hurdles than any one I have ever known. And she did it all with flash, flair and a smile.
I may never have met her face to face, but I learned so much from our "Miss Scarlett". I learned to really take a look at who and what is most important to me, and give them the time and attention they deserve. I learned you CAN laugh in the face of adversity...that you can almost always find the humor in a situation, even if the rest of the world can't see it at the moment. I learned laughter IS the best medicine. I learned ATTITUDE is everything. I AM A BETTER PERSON BECAUSE OF JUDITH.
This card was created because Judith seemed to be lingering in the back of my mind. I had made this background from a leftover piece of plastic wrap from the cling and scrunch technique (June/July 2007 TJN). I was looking for a phrase to put on the background and this one from Ann-ticipations kept popping out at me...and reminding me of Judith...and the whispery look of the background reminded me of a memory, so the card was begging to be made in memory of Judith...and her favorite color was pink.
So here's to you, Judith. You may not be walking the earth any longer, but you left so much of you behind that will carry on in so many of us...you left footprints in our hearts...and we are forever changed...the world is forever changed.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
