Good Friends

LaRea, Gail, Nance - BFF 2016 June Acting Silly
Howdy Crafters - My BFF Nance, moved to Tenn. 4 years ago - she came to visit me on Saturday June 25 and left on Sunday, June 26. It was a surprise visit and she caught me crafting in my jammies! Here is a photo of us drinking a Cafe Mocha [Tim Horton's] at midnight on Saturday! I feel like I have not slept for weeks! All in all it was a fun visit! Miss her already. My other teacher friend - BFF - LaRea, that lives in Michigan in another town,  came by to visit and it surely was girlfriend time! We had a blast!

Here is a card I created for QKR using their stamps - Balloon Holder, Cow Balloon and the Sentiment - "Good Friends are God's Blessings" which is so true!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!

  6. Gail! You had me at Tim Horton's! Still praying that the franchise will make it's way to my part of the world one of these days! But how fun to craft in your jammies with your bestie! And your card, of course, made me smile. Only YOU would think to create a scene that works perfectly with a cow balloon! Love it!
