Happy Birthday

Hi there.  Today I have a card for my longest known friend...we first met when I moved to California when I was 13, we met in crafts class.  Forty-three years later we are still the best of friends.  We have that friendship that never feels the lapses of time, we talk on the phone weekly...more if something comes up that we just have to talk about.  I can call her and say....I just have to say this out loud...spill it and then we hang up.  She is my sister, but not the one you bicker with...the one who has your back and whose back you have. The one who is your biggest fan, and you are hers.

She loves pink, so I do my best to incorporate it into her special card each year.

And I have a second funny card for her, we never ever give each other just one card!

So Dear Evelyn - Have a fabulous birthday!  I am looking forward to time together on my next visit to California.

Thanks for stopping by!

You 2 are truly blessed to have such a friendship for all these years! Love both cards, Cat--the first is gorgeous & shows me how to use that die I won from you! She's sure to laugh when she sees the second one!

My longest-known friend lives less than 5 miles away, Cat. I sure do wish we talked as often you and your friend ... life gets in the way, but only if we allow it, right?! Gorgeous flowers in the watering can ... but OH did I lol at the torching of the party hat!!! xx

My apologies for getting so far behind...I think your friend is going to LOVE her cards this year! Your flowers are so pretty, and I love the gray watering can! Love your 'fun' card, wonderful that you have such a great friendship with her!
