Simon Says - Thinking of You Card Challenge

I’m on a roll!  Looks like my “card making reward system” is working (I reward myself with making a card between mundane household chores)  I am also working my way slooooowly through my email and visiting blogs etc.  If I haven’t said hello yet - be patient!  I hope to be completely caught up by next week.

I’m taking the Simon Says “Thinking of You” challenge today.  It seems the basic rule is to create a card that lets someone know you care about them.  Here’s my take on this theme:

Simon-Says---Thinking-of-You---Barb-Derksen

Supplies: Embossing folder by Darice, Paper - Kraft-Core Shattered by Tim Holz, Stamp - My Favorite Things

I’ll leave you with a sweet poem about true friendship as well for it reminds me of the sentiment I once heard which states “A friend steps in when the world steps out”

YOUR TEARS

I dare not ask your very all:

I only ask a part.

Bring me - when dancers leave the hall -

Your aching heart.

Give other friends your lighted face,

The laughter of the years:

I come to crave a greater grace -

Bring me your tears!
