Anne and me.

My friend, Anne and I met on-line through the Papercrafts magazine site a couple of years ago and have enjoyed getting to actually meet face to face three times now : ) She is a SWEETHEART! and a talented paper crafter! This is a picture of the two of us taken at the Stamp Expo in St. Paul, Minnesota a couple of weeks ago.

I got to see Anne again this weekend when I drove to her ---> amazingly beautiful home nestled in the woods in Wisconsin to bring her a gift of some tomato plants.

The best part of the day was getting to meet her sweet little boy, Joe. He is over the top cute! and as sweet as his Mom.

Meeting on-line friends is such a joy. Anne and I live about 2 hours apart but compared to some of my friends that is close! : )

I hope you get to hug a friend today! : )

Sending Hugs

I have not really been able to create any new cards for the past few weeks. We have been busy with family life and spring planting but my gardens are holding their own and my hubby had a business trip today so I was able to spend a little time playing with paper and blurfing!

Here is a card I made some months ago but I love it : ) I would love to know the maker of this great image. I got this image from a stranger at a retreat and failed to get the name of the company. But I love her! I want to hug her. I bet she'd cover you up with a hug don't you?!? : )

until I can get back to some papercrafting I just thought I'd send a smile or two out to my friends so you do not forget all about me! heeheehee

Have a great evening!

Life goes on

I have not been able to spend time playing with paper or visiting my on-line friends recently because we have had a death in the family. My sister-in-law lost her battle with cancer - she was only 52 years old. She knew that she was going to spend eternity in heaven with Jesus so we are happy for her but she left many hurting hearts behind.

I am late posting my calendar page this month. I like this one : ) I love this paper and I enjoy seeing the calendar page on my desk - it just looks so happy and springy!!

I am wishing this sentiment for you today!! Thank you for stopping by I love hearing from you. I'm hoping to get some time to go and do some "blurfing" because I have greatly missed visiting my friends!! Hopefully I will be posting a few cards I've made and some that I am finishing up this week for a few swaps I have been in. At any rate the sun is shining and I am happy in my heart and I pray the same for you!

(((Hugs))) Patti
