Hello My Friend!

Hello my friends! How are you today? I have been busy creating cards while the temperature rises outside. While I enjoy a good tan, I do CANNOT stand the high heat! Sometimes I do mix the two, but most of the time I stay inside and enjoy my crafts.

I created this card soon after receiving the Big Circle Die from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life. I also purchased the Hello My Friend die from the same place, so they arrived together. WooHoo! They fit just right! The papers are from one of their Stamp Club Kits. Yes, I do love Stamps of Life! Their products are such fun, service is great, and the videos a true joy.

Soon after I created this card (like the day after), a dear, dear friend of mine went into the hospital. She's been like a second mother to me. As soon as I got the news she was sick, I took the card and went to see her. The creation brought an instant smile to her face. I'm so glad I could do something to give her a brief moment of reprieve from her illness.

While we might enjoy putting together cards, our creations bring smiles to the face of others. The joy in giving is what keeps us creating.

Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~


  1. A wonderful card - I can see why it brought a smile to your friend's face.

  2. Sorry to hear about your friend, but I bet your visit and this beautiful card cheered her immensely! (((hugs)))

  3. I so agree with you - cards are made to give away. It not only brings joy to the recipient, but joy to us as well. Sorry about your friend, that is never a good thing. Your card is so sweet! Love the stripe-y paper, and swing cards are always fun to do.


I'd love to read your comments!
