Hiya! Me again - wow - 2 posts in 1 night! Well ... I know I won't be posting again before I head to Utah and I really wanted to share my next 2 projects with you so ... here goes ...
I moved to Edmonton when I was 10 years old ... and in Grade 5. The first friend I made sat next to me and lived just around the corner. Her name was Wendy. Wendy and I were the best of friends for many years. We played HUNDREDS of games of Monopoly over the years (I think she was ahead about 52 games to 46 or so ...) and played HUNDREDS of rounds of Ms. Pacman on the way to the outdoor swimming pool in the summer. We had a great friendship. But, as often happens, we drifted apart over the years and lost touch. 4 years ago we found each other again. I'm so blessed to have her back in my life. We don't get together often but when we do it's like coming home. It's so EASY to be together. We know everything about each other - our past, our parents, our "issues", our heartaches ... we know it all and understand it all.
Last week Wendy phoned me with some wonderful news. Her and her family FINALLY got to adopt a beautiful 13 month old little girl - Hannah. After nearly 3 years of paperwork, hoops, hassles and heartache they finally got their little girl. I just HAD to make her a special card and a pack of "Thank You"s for her to give out for gifts people give the family. Here is what I made:
Here is was I made for a card for them:
OK - my fingers are cramping from all the typing so I'll sign off. I'll have LOTS to share when I get back from convention!! Until then - have a stampy summer!!!
