Happy Birthday Terry


Today is Terry's birthday, Terry is now.......................... years young, had to leave a lot of dots for her. Terry and I have been friends for over 30 years, yup we met in Daycare, NOT! Seriously we have been friends through thick and thin, and right now I am thick. LOL. I moved south and Terry stayed in New York so our friendship is made up of visits and lots of long distance phone calls. We are getting together in May for a week, her sister and a friend of theirs and I are going to meet in the land of "No Internet" for a week in May. Her sister Marie does not drive but does drive a mean golf cart so we will let her drive us home from the bars, NOT! Looking forward to my May vacation, we will have such fun.

I make Terry cards but she has a tough time using them. She tells me she takes a card out and then turns over in her head if the person is worthy of it, most times they come up short so she puts it away and purchases one from the store.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gorgeous Card Flo!!..I'm sure she will love it.....
I can understand where your friend is coming from...I know a few people who simply would not be worthy of a handmade card...or better to simply say..they would have more appreciation for a $1.00 bargain card...Oh well..

Hi Flo,

I have a best friend too that I've been friends with for over 30 years. I'm dating myself! Yikes! LOL!

We met in kindergarten and have been friends since. She lives in San Francisco and have not seen each other for 3 years but we are still friends like always!

It's nice that you make cards for your friend. I have a friend that I send cards too also and she don't like giving them away either.

Your card is beautiful! Your friend will definitely appreciate it!
