Friends near and far..


With the computer, faxes and emails, I think old fashioned cards and letters have become even more important. I just love receiving a card in the mail. Something that tells me someone has been thinking of me and has taken the time to write a card or letter, put a stamp on it and put it in a mailbox. I know that these things don't take that much time, but it definitely takes more time to do that than just dash off an email. And while emails make it even easier to keep in touch, it is just nice once in awhile, to have something to hold in our hands that someone who cares about us, has taken the time to send. I was thinking of a friend yesterday and just wanted to take the time to make a card for her.. Rusty Pickle paper is one of my favorites and the Bazzill scalloped edge cardstock. I used the Bow-Easy that a friend gave me.. It makes bows perfectly.. Happy Friday everyone!

Love that scallopped edge and your ribbon and charm are just awesome. And I agree...it is nice to get something in the mail that isn't a bill.
