Yesterday was a special day for two of my dear friends. It was their birthdays.
One is Pauline, my wonderfully talented blogging friend in England. (We 'met' 2
years ago), and the other is Diane, my friend of more than 51 years. We met
during our first week in High School, and bonded instantly, mainly because of
our love of horses and partly because of music. Now both in our 60s, we still
share that passion for horses...I still have one, and she still owns several.
Since leaving school, we have been separated by long distances geographically,
but have remained in regular contact. Sometimes it is several years between
actually getting together, but when we do, it is as if we had seen each other
the previous day. We chatter and laugh for ages, and our poor husbands
just shake their heads and 'leave us to it'!
This is the card I made for Diane, with a touch of wishful thinking...I wish
we could see each other more often, and reminisce over a pot of tea.
A closer look at the sweet little friends, coloured with Promarkers.
Inside my card, co-ordinated with the front. That pretty locket die-cut is
from an early Spellbinders set which I have had for years, and NEVER
used! Shame on me!! Last week I finished categorising and cataloguing
all my dies. It has been a huge task, but well worth it...I found dies
that I had forgotten, so now I think I will use them more often.

I will be back in a couple of days to show you the card I made for Pauline. I want to know if she has received it first, as I know she reads my blog regularly. Until then, thank you for visiting.
