My Initial





This weeks prompt (week 11) was your initial well heres mine never did like my name when I was growing up, although it has grown on me in recent years. No one really calls me Valerie mostly it's Val. The old ladies and gents I look after all like to call me valerie for some reason they can't understand the concept of Val. Doing some research on the internet I discovered that the latin of Valerie is strong and the french meaning is brave, there is a town called Valery in france and there is 1 Valerie with the same surname as me in the whole of the United States.

Look at you! Your card is wonderful! You little artist, you. :) I'm so impressed. I love how your squigles change the color of the object it's going through, like a stain glass window. It's beautiful!
