One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Paper Players # 186

Paper Players  this week has some colors for the challenge.
A beautiful person from my church moved to Bend, so I don't get to see her very often.
On Friday morning I got a text telling me she was in town and could we do lunch!
I immediately said YES, so excited to see her!
And my friend Linda even knows her because we all took a pilgrimage to Medjugorje in Croatia a few years back.  She bought our lunches and even a dessert to share because it was my birthday on Wednesday.  Of course I have to send her another thank I need a reason to make another card!!  This is for her..
Simon Says Stamps and die:  Thanks
colors:  blueberry sky, summer sunrise, HA Soft granite
Thank for taking a look and I hope you all have a great week, sadly my friend will be heading home tomorrow morning, but that is okay...we Skype a lot while in our craft rooms...besides, I think my DH will be happy to have me all to himself again!
