So Happy Together

I must say, I have a very blessed life.  But, when I get the opportunity to spend a week with my best friend of 42 years, Patti Lyn, it just THRILLS me.  I got to spend seven days with Patti Lyn here at my house recently.  I actually can't believe she's been gone a whole week today.   I'm already looking forward to our next time together, cuz it makes me SO HAPPY.  I guess I need to plan a trip to her house.  She is that "forever kind of friend", a true Proverbs 17:17 friend.  Lots of people are what I like to call "fair weather friends", but not Patti Lyn.  She is there for me, and I am there for her NO MATTER WHAT.  What a blessing to be SO happy when we are together, and even when we're apart; just knowing she loves me so much.  I am truly blessed in SO many ways.

Here's a fun little card that Patti Lyn and I made while she was here.  I needed a few more Birthday cards, and I like how this one turned out.  I am so in love with the new Prima Toggle Buttons which you can purchase at Simon Says Stamp Store and they are vintage looking and adorable.

I am entering this card in this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  This week is an Anything Goes Challenge, and I'm still chasing that dream.  So, here is the link to their amazing and fun challenge.
I used Jenni Bowlin products on this card, along with a few other items including those super cute Prima Toggle Buttons I mentioned.  I hope you like it.  I was thinking it could be used for either a guy or a gal.  Here is the link to their awesome challenge: - Anything Goes

Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by today.  I hope you're having a wonderful week.  Please know that I am grateful for you, and for your kind comments.

Many Blessings,
