Thank You Friend!

 It seems the past few months, I have had a bunch of
get well and sympathy cards. With my own woes
thrown in the mix I feel like Debbie Downer
Even though I have more get well's
and sympathy cards to make, my next few
are going to be for friends that have done 
some very kind things for me recently.
Hopefully more upbeat than some of my recent 
posts! I have awesome friends and want to thank
all of you for being so great!
This card is for my friend Kelley!  We have 
been friends for about 25 years. (That seriously ages me!
 Let's say we were ummm 2 then!)  We knew each
other up North and lost touch after she got married.
Then about 11 years ago we saw each other at one
of our religious assemblies and got talking and 
realized we lived about 10 minutes from each other!
How cool is that? She lived in CT, moved to Ohio,
I lived in NY, But then we both ended up in NC!
 She is one of my scrapbook buddies, and is chomping
 at the bit for me to start scrapping again.  She is a 
great friend and has been very supportive! 

...For always being there, for listening, for all 
your love and understanding...

Stacey this is awesome! I love the colors you've used! The butterflies, buttons and the medallions are gorgeous. I keep wanting to get that punch, but with all of the new ones out now, this one is not at the stores, and you know how I love to use those 50% coupons. LOL! Again, WOW! Hugs, dj

All those details... This is probably the nicest "not colouring" cards I've seen. Colours and style, sentiments and fonts, choice of papers and punches.

So beautiful. Thank you for sharing this with us.
Hugs, Annemaritta :)

Ulina /Apricot Bubbles said...

Ok, now that I asked Wikipedia, I know who Debbie Downer is :-)
At the moment I feel like Debbie Downer,too....you know what: your package wasn´t the only one, which got lost or stolen: I sent a submission to Papercrafts Magazine and it never arrived - I´m really sad. it would have been my 1st publication...
Ok - enough - I don´t want to be "Uli Downer".
You made such an elegant card!!!
VERY pretty! I love all these "punch patterns" you use - must buy me some punches,too.
I´m sure your friend will be full of joy getting this wonderful card!!!
