What a gorgeous Saturday it is here.
I hope that where ever you are and/or doing that you are enjoying yourself.

I wanted to stop in really quick and show you this card I made for my girlfriend, whom we had brunch with a couple of weeks ago.  It's been months since I've seen her...we were both pregnant at the same time, took yoga and Lamaze classes together. So since having our boys, it's been hard making time to see one I wanted to make her a card letting her know how much I cherish our friendship.

I used this weeks sketch over at Practical Scrapper.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
-Digi Doodle's Shops Best: Challenge #23: Write Me A Message
-Stamps R Us: Challenge #3: Stitches
-A Crafty Little Place: Challenge #54: Anything Goes
-Paper Play Challenge: Week #35: In stitches

Thank you for stopping in, I'll see you soon.
