This really great poem came to me in the form of this gorgeous hand-made card created by my good friend Sandy. I've blogged about her work before - here - when she sent me my "initials" beautifully altered and shabby-fied. She pretty much single handedly launched my interest in altered art and vintage style card making.
"When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left,
and I could say "I used everything You gave me".
