So many friends....


SO LITTLE TIME!

Ain't it the truth! Oh, it's good to live and blog in a community full of such wonderful friends... I consider myself incredibly blessed! Even more, since I entered the blog-o-sphere, nearly ONE year ago {*gasp!*}...

I made a card with this, super-delish image from Dawn at WPLUS9 design, while thinking of friends with whom I NEVER seem to have enough time to catch up with, or shower with the type of thoughtfulness and tokens of love that I IMAGINE I should...



I stamped this glorious {and FUN TO STAMP!} tree image (from FUNKY FOLIAGE by Dawn Woleslagle - see her website for more info!) and just thought of the beauty and possibility in this fabulous design.... reminded me of y'all! AMAZING! Soooooo much potential in us all... so many different looks, likes and unique imprints we all make... It never ceases to fascinate me...



{Astonishingly clean and simple!} Some of you ROCKSTARS, who I adore, and who are routinely elegant and flawless in your use of clean, crisp images, can rest assured - YOU'VE INFLUENCED ME!!! And I love it! Golly, gosh, Blogland is a great place!

Speaking of great, I have to give a major SHOUT OUT to my darling and cherished friend, my FIRST friend, whom I was blessed to find, exclusively as a result of blogging, Rosemary! She is a wonderful, prolific and GORGEOUS card crafter and a dear, DEAR friend ~ in Blogland AND real life! She recently sent me this uplifting card, that found me during a particular challenging time ~


Ultimate success - a card that was flawlessly crafted and SENT IN THE MAIL to a friend who needed something special {and let's face it, NOT a bill!} in the old MAILBOX... Oh, Rosie GIRL, you're the BEST!

Anyway, F R I E N D S! I hope you enjoy these "friend inspired" images and have yourself a terrific rest of your day!

As soon as I saw Lisa's couch stamp, I was wondering when you go that and then read about your Rosie Girl........now THAT is GREAT mail! :>

I too think I should reach out as much as my mind does. Can ya just hear me girlfriends? Can I stick a bluetooth thingy a little farther into my ear and just blast out my thoughts to ya all?? Oh wait, my usual train of thoughts would blind and or cripple most... never mind..

Sending ya a nice soft virtual hug... Oz
