Who Makes YOU Smile?
Happy Friday Friends! It's time to sit back and ENJOY this fabulous weather and bring it down a notch or two. I plan to spend some real quality time in my studio this weekend and CHIP AWAY at my ever growing list of things to get done. I'll be sharing many new things with you over the weekend. But for today - it's bitter sweet.....My BFF is leaving for the summer and I'm sure I'll be crying up a storm when I drop her and her hubby off at the airport this afternoon. It will be sad to see her leave - but know that her grandbabies are waiting on the other end and they (and she) deserve to be spoiled a little. I'm planning to get TONS of stuff finished while she's gone.....SO....WISH ME LUCK! Today, I'll be sharing the sweet sweet card Jan made for me before she left........Check it out! Now if you opened a card up and saw this message written across the top of your card....wouldn't you SMILE? Here's the card Jan made for me.......First up.....I merely mentioned (in passing) that I love love love this retired SU paper and Jan found some in her stash and seriously came up with this card. Funny how the two gals kind of look like us! (okay...maybe in our eyes they look like us!) I LOVE how Jan paper pieced the umbrella and then used dimensionals to give it some height. Such a great little tip for this card. And here is one last view of Jan's card........It has seriously made it's home front and center on my studio desk........so I can look at it while she's gone and it WILL make me smile (and think of Jan). Thanks for popping in today - I have some extra special cards to share with you tomorrow - so hope you can swing back and check them out. Until Saturday......Keep Living Your Dream!
