Just My Style!

Having a friend that's a lot like a sister is one of life's gifts and I've been blessed by a few. Lucky, I know. The Man Upstairs always looks out for me even when I don't watch closely for myself.

My dear friend, Lynn, and I get together as much as we can. We've raised our kids together, worked together, lived two door down from one another, followed each other (with our families, of course) in the military from location to location, and now it seems have pretty much retired together. We stamp, cross-stitch, knit, eat, laugh, bowl, you name it and we do it together. Yesterday we got to spend the afternoon together browsing through the craft store. I was anxious to get to the Cuttlebug and stamping section, but she made us start on the opposite side of the store and look through everything before we got to the best part! We had such fun looking through everything, but when we got the the stamping and scrapping side, we were in heaven! After the craft store, it was off for a late lunch. And once again, we saved the best for last - Strawberry Cheesecake with whipped cream and other than spending the day with my dear friend, it was just my style.

Oh, about the card! Lynn and I came up with this by using the SU Hostess set, "Houte Couture." I love this set because it's so sassy, but it's also girly. Pink and brown are two of my favorite colors together. They're girly but have a certain earthy tone to them so I think it's the best of both worlds.

Thank God for your dear friend, friends, or family. He always seems to meet our needs and it's always, Just My Style!
