Thankful

I made a call to a crafty friend this morning, someone that I haven't met in person but who's dear to me. It wasn't one of those small talks - we had a few things to go over, but it turned out wonderful, and I was walking around today, with a big smile on my face.
Not only it was so nice to hear her voice, but once again I understood the importance of my internet friendships.
The possibilities that internet offers are truly invaluable, aren't they? My life would be duller without all of you in my life, and although I'm sad that I can't just meet over a cuppa with most of you, not knowing you in person doesn't make these friendships any less valued in my books.
Heck, me and my hubby also met online, and fell head down into an cross-continent engagement - to our astonishment, as neither of us looked for a partner, nor did we want to get into a trouble of the emigrating process :)
So tonight I just want to say - thank you for being you! And I'm saing it with these... :)

Photobucket

Supplies: cardstock: American Crafts, white; stamps: Flourishes (Spring Bouquets); ink: Memento (Paris Dusk, Summer Sky, Tuxedo Black, Rhubarb Stalk); Copic markers; sewing machine; Cherry Sprinkles: AnnaBelle Stamps

This simple card is made with the JUGS87 sketch (let's call it a free interpretation...), and I also created it for the two Flourishes challenges: BBB11 - Beauty In The Spotlight, and FLLCJUNE11 - The Star Spangled Challenge.



This one is inspired by this card by Taylor (stagccva), this week's Featured Stamper on SCS (FS226).
I don't usually colour the whole scenes, but this adorable stamp asked for it. It's far from perfection, I still think it's stinkin' cute :)

Sending you special cyber hugs tonight,

    Wow, isn't the internet wonderful. I am so thankful for all the women ( and the few men) who have great blogs and take the time to share their talents. You never know what kind of impact you will have on someone else when you write a blog. Have a happy day.

  20. Your post made me WEEPY! Your first card made me MORE teary, and your second card made me go "awwwwwwww!" YOUR words could not hit closer to home! Especially as I gaze across my counter at the LOVELY, lovely birthday card you so kindly sent me from so far across the miles! I TRULY hold my blog friendships deep in my heart, so YOU, my sweet and talented friend, are talking my language. It makes a difference, I tell ya! We may not talk that often, but when we do - it just feels "real"... You inspire, delight and mostly, make me smile! What a gift and a privilege! It's so fun to be on this bloggy ride with LOVELY souls like you!
