distant friends

Scrappin & cardmaking sure is an awesome way to meet new people

although they may be far away in distance
I have found some of the nicest & most like me friends through this hobby
I wanted to send a little thank you out to a new friend of mine from the UK
(yes I mean England) and she requested something that touched my heart
she asked for nothing from me but a handmade card
my work, some of my art
now this lady is an awesome artist!
she makes the most beautiful of works
and she wanted something of mine
to me that is THE greatest compliment
please go & check out her site
& remember not only is her work beautiful
but her spirit is as well.

here is her card
I worked on it late into the nite
and tried to make it as perfect as I could

it will go out to her this morning

I wonder how long it will take to travel the world :)
I can not wait for you to get it Kim!
