A Simple "Thank You, Friend" Card

My birthday was a month ago, but due to health reasons, my dear friend, Sherry, and I were unable to celebrate it until last Thursday, when she invited me to her home for a Ladies' Night. Her husband, Ken, picked up two orders of smoked chicken & greens salad (with EXTRA ranch dressing, if you please!) for our dinner and Sherry opened a bottle of Pinot Noir wine for us to share -- to the LAST DROP! (And, a second bottle was gifted to me for take-home. :)

Following dinner and a loooong chat, we invited Ken to join us for a movie. Afterward, Ken retired for the night and Sherry and I continued our visit until I slipped out after 1:00 a.m. YIKES!!! (I can't HELP that we get together SO rarely, it's DIFFICULT to part company!!)

Below is a photo of the "thank you" card that I made for Sherry and will put in tomorrow's mail. I hope she likes it!


  1. Sounds like a very wonderful evening, and a very wonderful friend, Deb! She's going to love this card. I really love the mix of papers and the stamped flowers and sentiment. The bit of punched edging on the side really catches my eye, too.

  2. such a wonderful way to celebrate your bday, deb! her card is so pretty--i esp. love the colors and that cute "grateful" tag:) happy belated bday:)

  3. Great card! I really like how the different patterned paper worked so well together. You were able to keep the colour scheme throughout the card. Great Job! I also like the punched edge on the one piece of paper, and the tab with the sentiment "grateful to call you a friend" which I would like to say to you :)
    So glad you had a wonderful time with Sherry
