Heidi is sharing today a quick and easy, no stamp card that is also flat for mailing. She nailed it on many counts! This card just touched my heart for so many reasons, which I’ll discuss further down. Let’s just take a look right now:

Isn’t this just a breath of sunshine!

It’s funny how one little image can spark oh so many memories. The first memory that came rushing to mind when I saw this card was my Dad, who passed away in 2013. When I was a child he loved to play the accordion. And one of his favorite songs was You are My Sunshine. I can’t tell you how many nights I would fall asleep to the sound of accordion music coming from the kitchen with him singing this song. I can just hear it so clearly now as I sit here and type this.

The second memory this card evoked was time spent on Lake Superior as a child. We are blessed to live on the shores of this majestic Great Lake. My aunt lived right on the waterfront in Ontonagon and we have pictures from my childhood of my sister and me playing on the shore, so similar to the image on this card. And the image above even has those large rolling waves coming in. Oh, how much fun we had!

OK, time to get back to to reality:

You can find Heidi’s post on her blog here.
