Farewell and Fare Well Card

Nothing like a good romp through the Thesaurus to get you thinking. Do I want to say "Farewell!" or "Fare well!"? Synonyms for the latter are prosper, succeed, prevail, and flourish. I looked up "farewell" (noun and verb) and read these words: leave taking; parting; adieu; send off; go one's way; get under way; and sally forth. That last one is fun, but we are saying good bye to Sara Beth not Sally. 

Saying good bye to a friend who is moving is never fun, but sending her off is usually a blast! We shopped for just the right gift with a Georgia flair, so Sara Beth will remember us in her new state. We gathered to eat and talk and laugh, so she is full both body and soul. We sat her down and prayed over her, so she knows she is covered in God's love and ours.

And, we signed a card, so she has our words to take with her. 
Farewell and fare well, Sara Beth!

Card Details:  I embossed the image (The Artful Stamper) on watercolor paper with watermark ink and clear embossing powder; painted with water color paints; embossed the tree again with green ink and clear powder; colored the tree top with water color pencils and used a blender pen; cut out the tree top and adhered to the first tree with mounting tape; added blue pearls to flower centers; printed verse and used the labels die cuts from Stampin' Up.
