Tribute to a legend

Those of you who are familiar with Vickie Enkoff's wonderful stamps at Creative Chaos will be sad to learn that Vickie died last week.

There's a poignant letter from her daughter Melanie Sage on Vickie's Site, please do read it. The family is looking for art done as a tribute to Vickie, to celebrate her life.

There's also a place for condolences on Melanie's site.

As Melanie mentioned, this is the last piece of art Vickie created, on the day before she died.

This is a huge loss to the world of rubber stamping, and to the creative, artistic community as a whole. She was such a kind, generous woman, always supporting and mentoring others, always willing to share her amazing ideas.

Please say a wee prayer for her and her family.
