You know those friends who come into your life… the ones that you just know you’ll be friends with forever? I have a handful of those friends. No matter how long it has been since our last conversation and no matter what has kept up apart we always pick up right where we left off. I was lucky enough to re-connect with one of those friends last night. Her phone call was a welcome interruption to my dull evening which included watching Intervention and Hoarders on A&E…please tell me I’m not the only one! *grin* I wanted to get a card sent off to her so I sat down with my August Key Ingredients kit. It’s amazing how quickly this card came together! I knew I wanted to use the cute banner stickers included in the kit and I layered the letter stickers over the top to spell out ‘hello’. I sponged by image panel with a cloud template and used some twine to hang the banner and a piece of ribbon from the kit for a little bow. The butterflies made the perfect addition to the scene and I stamped a trail for each of them using one of the stamps from In the Park. The sentiment is also from the In the Park set. As you can see from the closeup picture, I had lots of fun decorating the butterfly with Tiny Twinkles and the help of my Embellie Gellie!

So my little encouragement for today is to send a card to one of those life-long friends! Whether it has been days, weeks, or years since you talked to them, your thoughtfulness will absolutely make their day! Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you all a Fabulous Day!
