Good Friend Card

June 24, 2010 at 2:24 pm 2 comments

Good afternoon! Wasn’t yesterday exciting ? The World Cup has me excited but not about football! I just loved the way my kids were getting so excited about the nation. One had a flag drawn on each hand, one nearly exploded with excitement when  I handed him some freebie football medals I got with the petrol ( or should that be diesel!).  They all sat there on the settee and just soaked up the match. For me, that was the best bit; not the sport, nor the result but the shared moment and the sense of being together. Times like that are rare- the stopping and pausing and cheering and groaning. Me? I think football is just about kicking a bag of wind around a pitch- it doesn’t excite me BUT, give me the world cup if it unites the nation and draws my kids.

This card was inspired by one of my friends. She popped over for a coffee yesterday. She has to be one of my favourite people in the whole world and she is a truly good friend. She would drop anything if she could help you. We laugh (mostly at ourselves), cry and ‘get’ one another. People like her are as scarce as dinosaurs and is invaluable as the largest diamond. You have to hang to friends like that.. and I’m definately sticking with her! This card is for you (you know who you are!!!).

I’m having problems with my camera and lighting (or maybe it’s a certain lack of skill on my part!). I have retreated to the front drive, hence the stones. At least its a little different.

I had a wonderful workshop on Tuesday night. A craft club near Bootle in a church hall called Northfield. What a great bunch of people providing a card class for the local community. It was so brilliant that they could get lots of Stampin’Up! freebies  and I know they’ll use them loads. Why don’t you schedule a workshop too- I’d be happy to come and share an evening with you and your friends. I can’t promise you a quiet night- but it will be fun and you get the chance to earn Stampin’Up! goodies!!

See you soon- I’m posting a special post about my Christmas in July Extravaganza -keep checking back!

    Hey love your card, glad your workshop went well, it just shows how little I’m promoting my SU as that church is on my door step… (I should be embarrassed really) I certainly haven’t got the time at the moment, can’t even organize my next class (how sad)

    Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine 🙂
