Today my dear friend Christy and her hubby are coming to visit us in Calgary for a couple of days with their 2 little boys. Their youngest one I haven't even seen yet.. 2 years it has been since we saw each other. sigh.. so thankful we can meet again. This morning I made them this card. The little sentiment says: 'The season of friendship last forever'.
Christy means so much to me. When I first came to Canada about 9 years ago.. she was there for me. She was one of my first Canadian friends. She was so patient with me and my silly English. Really I must have sounded like a 4 year old :) This woman is so welcoming and kind. Wow, have I been missing her. We both love special teas and Chai lattes. And while we are sipping our drinks we love to chat and listen to each other. We would go for walks in Winnipeg, we both helped out with the moms group in our church, we would try to read the same books and be all profound about them. She makes me smile.. Like I said I can't wait to see her again.
I made this card with the Crumb Cake, Kiwi Kiss and Very Vanilla card stock from Stampin Up. I also used some shiny Kiwi Kiss ribbon and 3 corduroy buttons in yes.. you guessed it right.. in Kiwi Kiss as well. I used the Crumb Cake ink pad to ink up one of the images from a retired SU Hostess set called: 'Oh so lovely'.
I love the result.
I hope Christy and I will have some free time this weekend (without the 5 kids we are going to have in this house) to make some cards..
Anyway.. thanks for listening to all my babbling.. I appreciate you stopping by again. If you have a blog as well.. please drop me a line and I would love to check out yours and become one of your blog followers. Bless you!
