Snowflakes

This was one of the last holiday cards I made for this year's stash. I believe I am DONE!!! Most of them are addressed. The flat ones have their postage on them.....the others (and that would be most of them) are ready to be hand canceled at the post office. This was a CAS (clean and simple) card made using the SU snowflake punch and a Martha Stewart punch. I CB'd the black background with a snowflake embossing folder, added some red bling to the center of the snowflakes, and heat embossed the SU sentiment.

What a delightful day I had yesterday!! A friend and I headed to New Haven to go to IKEA to meet a college friend who we have not seen for several years. (It was also a continuation of my birthday festivities.) What a wonderful day we had....full of laughter, shared memories, catching up with news of families and friends, shopping, and some deelish Italian food. It is simply amazing how, when you are with good friends, the time flies!!! And....how, even though we hadn't seen this friend for several years it was as if we had seen her yesterday....guess that is a sign of true friendship.
