Thoughts of Friendship

Today has seemed extra long as I have had major problems with my laptop and wireless router...seems to be working OK right now...but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
This first card I did for Beate's sketch! So happy to have her back sharing them again. I missed doing them on Fridays!
My girlfriend, Deb, asked if I could make a bunch of cards for her. I had tons already collected from all the challenges but I did have to make a few more. This is one of them. I don't want to show them all, as I don't want to ruin the whole surprise of opening her mail!
Rose Ann was sweet enough to mail these cards to me for Christmas and my birthday! Can't believe it took nearly a MONTH to get! Crazy! They are beautiful aren't they??!! Thanks so much Rose Ann! This added a nice cheery bright spot in my frustrating day!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love the brads on your scalloped edge! I think we were thinking the same thing with the colour combos today! I also really like the birdie card with the popped up umbrella....will be casing this one!

Oh I love the Beate card but since I know the birdie is coming to ME I really love it - that's just what I had in mind....don't ya think that little guy would put a smile on someone's face who just isn't feeling well???? Great job Dawn, and NO! Don't post many of the ones coming to me until I have them in hand - that's the great part of it all, the surprise of seeing those wonderful creations! And you know I check this blog each and every day - lol. Helps being subscribed - that way I can't space it out! Sure hope those computer problems are over - have been having a few of my own, as you're aware and it's no fun at all.

Is that a hew header I see or did I totally blow by it before??? Looks Great!
Hugs & Love,

I LOVE the challenge card! The colors, the paper, your coloring of the flower are amazing!

I also LOVE the birdie card. Every card you make is wonderful.

Rose Ann's cards look beautiful! How sweet to get two RAK's. Dang...I missed your birthday! Sorry about that! When was it?

Hugs and belated birthday greetings.

Dawn, your card for Beate's sketch is soooo pretty!! I love everything about it!! Your birdie card is darling! (I'm so glad you 'enabled' me to get that set). I love your popped umbrella, and pretty paper!!

So glad your cards finally arrived too!

Hope your computer/router stays working okay! The cards....oh my goodness! Each one has such a defining beauty! Love them all! Deb

Hey Dawn,

Your cards are fabulous! I especially love the first one! The paper is fabulous and the colors are GORGEOUS! The second card is so darn cute.

You received some lovely cards as well. Yeah, the mail systems stinks! When they say 5 days, they mean 3 weeks!
