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!

Just Us Girls ~ Butterflies

I was privileged to meet in person the owner/manager of our Seize the Birthday Challenge and Nancy is also a designer for Just Us Girls Challenge too!
I went over to check out this "JUGS" Challenge and saw that it was butterflies...I couldn't pass that up
I drove up to Seattle and stayed with my BFF of 59 years, she lives south and east of SouthCenter and  she DOES NOT drive downtown Seattle (and I wouldn't either!!), so we had an adventure on the Light Rail!  I could legitimately claim ignorance as I am from Portland...hee with a little help we made it downtown and now we are pros and will do it again...and for seniors it is only $1 each way!  Woo hoo!!  We had a beautiful sunny warm day and meeting Nancy was a highlight of my trip...gosh we just talked like we had been best friends forever and were just catching up!!  She is the sweetest person ever and has a great sense of humor!  We had the best time getting to know each other, and I am sure we will be meeting up again especially since Nancy's son lives in Seattle now!

  5. What a joy to see all your smiling faces!! It is great fun meeting Blogland friends!! I wish I could do it more. : ) Who knows now that we are in the Black Hills perhaps more people will visit here.

    I love your beautiful card! your butterflies are colored so sweetly! and I love that oh so true sentiment!! : )


  6. What a great picture! You can tell by the smiles you are having a great time. So much fun to meet in person. Wow, that's a great way to go downtown. I wish we had something like that here. Your card is gorgeous.
