You'll always have a Friend in Me...

Good morning everyone. 
     I hope that you have all had a great week.  I am sorry that I missed Wednesday's Retro-Fresh challenge over on the Farm Fresh Challenge blog.  Boy did everyone make some awesome projects and cards.  I can not wait to see what you all make for this one.
     However I am finally able to blog again, so I really wanted to get my card made for today's Friday Spy Day over on the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog. Today we have Spied Jamie's card!

Great Job Jamie!

     When I first got a look at Jamie's card I just knew what I wanted to do for mine.  Jerry and I have a friend that we've both known for a long time and she is having a bit of a health scare at the moment, so I wanted to send her a little card to let her know that we are thinking of her.  I pulled out the ever wonderful Fleur Anya and gave her a dress to go with some of the papers that I wanted to use.  I was also able for the Very First Time Ever heat emboss my greeting on the front of my card.  Thanks so much Amy for the ink and the tutorial on practicing.  It finally worked.  lol.... :O)    I am super pleased with how my card turned out and I so hope it brings a smile to our friend. 
    So before I go for the day I just have to share you. When I got home from work yesterday afternoon I had a package on my front porch from Ellen Hutson LLC, and the reason I mention this is because she is having some great sales going on right now and the fact that every time I order from her I always get my goodies within two days.  I am telling you.  I order these things late Tuesday night and here it was  Thursday afternoon and my stuff is already here.  Yay!  Thanks so much Ellen.  You are such a sweetheart and I love the ribbon that you send along as a special 'Thank You'  also,  I just love doing business with you.  One of the things that I purchased was the 6x6 Prima pad 'Londonerry' it was on sale so I thought why not, I like the colors.  Well, when I checked out the papers I just thought they were so adorable I knew right away that I was going to use them for my card today.  lol... Sometimes you just know.
     Ok guys, be sure to head on over to the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog and check out all the beautiful cards the girls have made.  Then be sure to make one up and play along for your chance to win a Greeting Farm Stamp. 
     I hope you all have a great Friday and I will talk at you tomorrow as I have some pictures to share of my overwhelming pig Ste of a desk and the way I was able to get it under, I am going to be showing the really bad stuff people.  lmbo..
