I have a sister-in-law who married into my husband's family about a year after I did, and she and I are very close in age. We started a friendship many years ago as our husband's (the brothers) were employed by the same company and we both moved to the California Bay Area. In those early years of our marriage before moving around the country separated us by many states, we had lots of fun and laughs.
I wanted to send her a little birthday card showing off my new Copic marker coloring talent. As she is a shipmate by marriage as well as our husband's sharing the same company employment, I thought this little Magnolia stamp of a sailor girl was appropriate.
