A Special Friend

Hi friends.  We are still working to complete our bathroom redo.  What a job it turned out to be!
 
Weather today was HOT.  Yesterday 90 and today 88....yuck!  Bring on the Fall!
 
I made this card for a dear friend for her birthday.  We met in Monterey, California
many years ago as young woman married to servicemen.  She from Texas me from NY.  She came into my life when I really needed a friend, a long way from home and very lonely.  She is a blessing to me, and when we talk, it is like we have never been away from each other for more than a minute.  Such a wonderful friend.
 
 
Everything on the card is a die cut.
Flowers, bird Tim Holtz
Butterfly and swirls- Cherry Lyn Design
Small flowers punch
Card Spellbinders Grand dies
 
Hope you took a moment today to remember those
who died on 9/11.

 
Thanks for Stopping by today.  Until later............

Sue, this card is almost as beautiful as your friendship with this lucky lady. I'm sure she needed you as much as you needed her at the time. It's wonderful to have that special friend in our lives, isn't it? Enjoy!
