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!

A Special Birthday

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday Dear Friend,
Happy Birthday to YOU!!
Yes, friends, today is Linda's birthday, you know that we are partners in crime, right?
We skype at least once a week while we make cards!
We offer mostly constructive criticism to each other!
Stop by and wish her a Happy Day!!
 If I could have picked a sister it would have been YOU, Lin!
Can you believe we have been friends for almost 60 years? 
Thanks for being my "(older" *wink) friend and for enjoying this hobby as much as I do!
Will we still be skyping and making cards through another 20 years?
Hope so!!

Hope you have a TERRIFIC DAY, my friend!!
