Great Friends

You know how you have those friends who you can laugh your head off with and at the same time they are the ones that can tell it like it is.  Friends you can call when you need a truly honest opinion even if you may not like what they have to say?  Friends you can count on for being there for the great times and the not so great times. I treasure my friends that fall into this category.  Yesterday, I got to spend time with them.  Around lunch time, I headed out with Sandy for lunch, a manicure and pedicure.  A great time to catch up. 

Then for dinner, Pat and I headed over to our friends, Wes and Katie's, for an awesome dinner, lots of laughs, talks about how are children are growing up and then to see Just Go With It.  We had such a wonderful evening.  A perfect day...and a reminder...call and see my dear friends more often!

For Katie, rather than bring a bottle of wine, I decided to make a set of cards.  She is one of my crafting friends too...so I wanted to make her something she doesn't have.  I made two each of these cards.  The layouts are inspired by Lucy. I love how she always does a vertical panel down the middle of the card with a little stitching on the edges.  She makes so many gorgeous, clean, stunning cards.  These are also for the Wee Memories Challenge...tell us your inspiration.  I get tons of inspiration from blog land and especially Lucy.


Ingredients:  Verve Stamps; Ribbon: Stampin' Up: PTI Kraft Paper; Restoration Collection Crate Paper and Border Stickers
