Happy Valentine's Day


I made this card for a very good friend of mine, we have been buddies for over 25 years, wow we are that old. I met her on a cruise, we wound up being cabin mates. I had just moved to Florida and worked for a business broker, well he and his partner decided I needed a cruise, that was nice of them and she had just gotten divorced and decided that she also needed a cruise. We met in the cabin and have been friends ever since. I love her MEMPHIS drawl and she loves my New York accent, I don’t have an accent. I loved this DCWV paper, and the sentiment and flower are stickers, I cut some cute pink squares diagonally for the corners. Want to wish everyone a Happy Valentine, I received a couple of really beautiful hand made cards and will be sharing those with you. Take care and enjoy the day of Love and Friendship.

I just realized I hadn't seen one of your posts in a while and for some reason it doesn't come up in Google reader anymore. I'm going to have to come to your blog every day, I guess. I love your choice of papers and stamps for your Valentines' by the way.

We New Yorkers don't have accents. Really. :-D
