I saw this stamp & immediately thought of my oldest friend
funny how a simple image can open the floodgates of memory
bringing back the sweet realities of childhood
the sights 
the smells 
those spectacular secrets
as if it were yesterday...
I smile at the innocence
feel my heart beating with anticipation
crazy wonder
sheer squealing ear splitting excitment
it's a secret :)

I hope you all have special memories that this card brings back

anyone who knew me way back then 
knows who these 2 girls are
karebear I have been thinkin of you lots lately & miss you terribly
this card is for you
but more importantly
my sweet memories are because of you :)
love you
now & always

thanks so much for comin by my blog
now get on that phone & call your special friend :)

Oh honey you did a fabulous job with your card. I love this image and it's funny how people can relate to it. I think of my buddy I always talk to on the phone. You did a beautiful job coloring it in.

This is brilliant! :) gorgeous image and colouring, and yes it brought back memories for me too.

We used to share walkie-talkies with the neighbour kids and would often get in trouble for chatting after bedtime! :D lol.
