A CARD FOR A FRIEND

Good morning all! I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I will coming home tonight from Convention! I will have lots to share tomorrow and I will doing the drawing for the blog candy, so make sure you come by! This is the card I made for my fabulous upline and good friend Kimberly who rocks at stampin', is a wonderful mentor, and has become such a good friend! She is big on goals and dreams, is always there to listen, and has some of the best ideas I have ever heard! So, I thought this stamp set was perfect for her - it's the new one in the preview catalog called Dreams du Jour, which I think is absolutely beautiful! I love the quote, it is wonderful!!! So, I will leave you with the details - enjoy the rest of your weekend!
