Lexi's Creations Challenge #51The challenge this fortnight is to create a project using the theme 'Just a Sentiment' Take a quick trip over to  Lexi's site  for all the details and  we  would love for you to take part in the fun!

We all have dear friends in our lives, some old, some new and each and everyone is a gift. I just  re-connected with a very old friend who I first met in grade nine. It was such a joy to see her after all these many years. We had graduated together, moved to the  same big city,  lived  as roommates for many years when we  were single and too poor to pay the rent by ourselves, toured  (hitch hiked) the British Ilse's  together ( as as very young adults ) and shared a multitude of memories. Some good ,some bad, but shared none the less. Time brought changes and we grew apart to live our separate lives. We remained in contact usually through  annual letters and cards at Christmas time and the odd phone call. Bless her for those phone calls as this fall  we finally decided to get together.  It is hard to explain how much that meeting meant.  Some people you cherish through a lifetime, she is one such person and until I saw her I did not realize how much I had missed her..

Card Details:
The digital stamp sentiment is from Fairy Dust Crafts  and is called 'the Gift'.    The large flourishes are from the Tim Holtz 'Elegant Flourishes' die cut. The two small butterflies are  from Stampin Up's 'Beautiful Wings' and the larger butterfly is from a MS Punch. The large flower is a dimensional sticker from 'Jolee's boutique'. The flowered circle edge is from MS.
