"Our Friendship Spans the Miles"

Hello Crafty Friends.

You know, sometimes life throws you a curve ball- such as a health issue, the loss of a loved one, a good friend moving or loss of a job.  Unfortunately we have all had to deal with these down points in our lives and having support from friends and loved ones help us through those difficult times.  Admittedly the past 10 months have been one life test after another and I am fortunate to have the most amazing, caring and trustworthy friends that have always had an open ear and shoulder to lean on.  Every day I am thankful for my friends and family and I do try to express my appreciation for their friendships.  Sometimes I like to go a step further and send a card.  This card is for my Aunt Carol who lives back in Illinois.  She is not only my aunt but a very good friend.

The card used the sweet sentiment from Quietfire Designs set, In a perfect world:
In A Perfect World, Set of 4 Stamps - Mounted
Such a lovely set- and as usual Suzanne Cannon's calligraphy is gorgeous.  It was stamped in black archival ink on Cheery Lynn's die from Dutch Daisy Boutique.  The paper is Bo Bunny's Juliet Collection.  The roses were fussy cut and Stickles applied.
The inside is "wish you were here" from the same stamp set.
Gold was applied to all straight edges for a little extra touch of pretty.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a happy crafty day.
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
