It's all about friends...

Hello there my favourite crafty peeps; yes tis I the MIA author of this blog.
I think it would be safe to say that I am somewhat back on track with my desire to craft again, however I will be taking more time away from “my” version of regular posting.
My husband and I have recently returned from a much needed vacation to England and Holland.
We stayed with friends in Nottingham, England and were treated like royalty, no pun intended, LOL. Our amazing hosts and tour guides made sure we took in as much of this beautiful area as possible whilst there.
We also spent time in Amsterdam where I was able to meet in person a beautiful lady named Sandra Van Blaricum and her awesome son Robin.
Most of you will know Sandra from various blogs, such as TTCRD Magazine, The Outlawz Challenges and of course her personal blog;
We spent the most enjoyable day in Amsterdam sightseeing together, and I am pretty certain our friendship has moved beyond the realm and limitations of cyberspace.
I will stop there though, not because that is all I want to say about our trip, but I will leave the trip details/photos to my hubby’s travel blog. I will give you all the heads up when he has a post for you, and as we know most men and their vision of timing it could be a while!

Today, I would like to share a card that I made before I took off on our adventure, which just so happens to be about friendship as well.

 I made this card for my lifelong friend who just so happens to complain regularly to me about why I haven’t made her a “Copic card” yet. Little did she know that shortly after her birthday last year I purchased this Bugaboo image because it is a true reflection of our particular friendship, or so it sometimes seems. I didn't post it until now because her birthday came while I was away, and I didn't want her to see it here on my blog before she personally received it.

But, it’s not just the image that we relate to; it is also the sentiment inside…
I am sure the sentiment needs no further explanation other than where I found it of course. You can find this WordArt and tons more over at Ginger’s House. 
My friend and I have laughed, cried, and shared many trials and tribulations over our life time. I couldn't help but LMBO when I came upon Bugaboo's Friends don't let friends wine alone.
 I will leave you here as I have taken enough of your time. I will be away from my blog for a wee while longer as our home is undergoing a beauty treatment of sorts, and I will be spending time with another dear friend during the remainder of July.
So it might be a while before I get the chance to get my Copics out and start creating again, but until then take good care and thanks for stopping by.
Cheers JS
