Going to lunch with a bunch of gals from my neighborhood.  One of the gals that lost her husband is moving to Long Island to be closer to her only son and we are taking her to lunch.  She and her husband built their home and moved in when they married, she was 17.  She has lived there all her life, and soon will  celebrate her 76th birthday.  I'm so proud of the way she has handled cleaning out the house and giving away and getting rid of her "things", then selling her home, and now the big move soon.  I will miss her as a neighbor and friend, but I am so happy for her that she will be with her son and his family in a loving home.  They are all looking forward to this move and I wish them much happiness in the days ahead.  They have added a Mom's apartment to their home, so she will have her own space.

Have a fabulous Friday.  Thanks for stopping by for a peek. Until later............

What an adorable card. This one will have to go into my idea book for when I need a baby card. Love it!
Wonderful for your friend. My Mom is still in the house she moved into as a teen and she is
86, so about 70 yrs in the same home. Amazing!

Wow, Sue, this is great! Wonderful idea, will have to try this! Love the elephant and the embossing folder that you used behind him. I wish your friend all of the best with the move and starting a new part of her life. I know that you will miss her, you will have to send her a beautiful card every once in a while!

This is one of my favorite card cuts - don't know why I haven't made more of them. Love all the cute little details on this one.
