Sad farewell…..

I´ve got the sad news that my lovely friend Faith, Illustrator and Owner from {From the Heart Stamps} has passed away. As many of you know, Faith was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2016 and had been in treatment since then. After a courageous battle she died peacefully in a care facility.

I´ve been with Faith since 2012 and and was very honored to got a Position in her Designteam. Since then, we had a wonderful respectful and creative time – together with the entire Team. I will miss it very much. Everyone who knew Faith, knows what a great Person she was.  Even if I have never met her personally, I have lost a wonderful “Online Friend”. She will always have a special place in my heart.

There is a GoFundMe campaign to support her husband and children. They will use the money for expenses, college funds, or whatever else come up during this difficult time. I think that is a great thing.



I think the most popular images that Faith has created were the Birdbrains. This card I made some time ago and all the more now, this saying is perfect for what I feel when I think of Faith.
