more playing around

How can I not have any birthday cards in my stash? Seriously, you would think I would have something, but no. The other thing I don't have is Happy Birthday stamps. I have a couple, but not ones that fit the vision in my head. Hmmm...must remedy that problem! :) I am head over heels for this Sassafras Lass Whale of a Tale paper. So fun, funky, and yet cute.

I had the best day yesterday. I got to spend the afternoon with my oldest and dearest friend. We have been friends since the day I was born, she is six weeks older. We played ball together, went to camp together, got braces together, grew up together. She lives in Chicago now, so we don't get to see each other much. It was so good just to sit down and talk, talk like we are still attempting to spend the night on my parent's screen porch, but freak ourselves out from every noise we hear. We never made it the whole night, ever! :) So, have you talked to your oldest and dearest friend lately? If not, call her, or better yet, send her that card sitting on your desk. thanks for stopping by!
