CCEE - In Memoriam Joanne Grzelak

Today the CCEE Stampers are dedicating our blog posts to our dear friend Joanne Grzelak, who departed this world in late May.  Joanne was known and loved throughout the stamping community, and she will be missed.  She was one of the first people I "met" on Splitcoaststampers, where she was known as Jojot.  Her beautiful cards had several on-going themes -- her love of the ocean, paper-piercing, and her distinctive red/white/black color combinations.  I chose two of these themes for my card, dedicated to her:

We have a special blog post today, on which we have all made cards in remembrance of Joanne; and we hope you will join us in remembering her today.  If you would like to see how Joanne's former teammates have honored her, please join in on our blog hop.

Your card reflects Joanne's great love of the seashore. Beautifully done, too. I even followed Joanne's Pinterest beach and seascape files because she pinned such pretty pictures of those things I love too.
