Yesterday I needed to find a project to keep me busy while my close friend, Stefanie, was in the hospital having a lumpectomy performed. What better way to keep busy than to get inky? Of course, I always think Changito is adorable, and this image with him and his little friend made me smile. The sentiment is from a different set (Stampendous Ribbon Hope) but I think the message is perfect for these little monkey friends. And perfect for me and Stefanie. Over our 25 year friendship we have endured a lot, including high school, her living in Korea for a few years, college, boys, men, weddings, pregnancies, parents' illnesses; we've gone through just about everything together. Unfortunately, with our weight fluctuations, we've also been through "thick and thin" according to the scale ;-)!
This card was based on this week's Stampendous Saturday Sketch Challenge. I'm really having a good time working with the sketches their wonderful team provides. It has really challenged me to be a little more creative and to get more cards made to add to my stash. Thank you, Stampendous!
I better get going and get this card in the mailbox before the mailman arrives. Please keep a good thought for my friend and say a prayer that her lab results next week bring good news and that there is no need for further treatment. Thank you!
Take time to get inky today and maybe make a card for one of your good friends to let them know how much you love and appreciate them....
