I love that ribbon! Works absolutely perfectly with that wonderful stamp! I am going to have to get some of these stamps - they just make the best cards. Glad to hear your Mom had figured out what is dragging her down. My Mom has it too - actually through diet and exercise, she pretty much pulled herself out of it and she is in her late 70s - I am hoping your Mom can beat it too. Hugz Nic!
