The Little Girl with a Big Bow

I don't normally blog on Sunday's ~ But today is one of my online friend's birthday and for that event... an exception!

Join me in wishing Karle' 

a Very Happy Birthday!

I've written many times about the special virtual friendships I've made through my cardmaking, selling gently used craft supplies, and Design Team work.  It is amazing what relationships can be made with ladies that you know you will never meet face to face.

Karle' and I have been Facebook friends for over EIGHT years and she has got to be one of the most humorous ladies I know.   Over the years I've named her the Mini Stamp Queen as she collects the tiniest stamps and makes the cutest cards with them.  

Karle' has a private Facebook site for sharing crafting projects  and I share my work daily there also.  If I put a bow on a card, I know that I'll get several hearts and a great comment about her loving 'that Big A** bow!'  ...  and each time I just smile knowing once again we've connected our friendship again.

So of course for her special day today - only a card with a special bow for her would be appropriate. 

(Count those loops ~ What? It's a TRIPLE!!!) 

 She loves her Unity Angie girls as much as I do ~ I've selected a slender lady like my special friend (Unity Stamps, A Friend Like You by Angie Blom) ~ in an image of sending out good vibes to all she meets.  Her sentiment ~ You Are Remarkably Made ~ Yes, Our God made you one remarkable lady!

 Treasure the days you are given with your friends both near and far.  Each are numbered and special. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
