It’s Just Not the Same

justnotthesame

Good morning!!  The official countdown to the summer begins today!  5 more work days, 3.5 with students, 0 report cards, 0 more field trips…ahh, it’s just around the corner!  Today’s card was inspired by a special event this week.  Bryan Adams, the CANADIAN born/BC raised talent, was in town Sunday night and it was AMAZING!!  I haven’t seen him since Gr. 11!  We’ve both aged, but still love to rock! LOL  Anyways, it was a rainy night and as we walked to the concert, we ran into a dear, old friend that I haven’t seen in over 2 years.  We spend about 5 minutes in a tight embrace, in the rain :)  It felt good and few words were needed to tell each other how much we’d missed each other.  It was perfect.  This sentiment explains how I felt for these years without her.  I’m using this week’s Viva La Verve sketch designed by Dive Teresa.  I had the sentiment and a few papers in mind and the rest fell into place.  Head over to the Verve Forum for all the details about how YOU could win $100 in Verve Bucks!  AND the sale over in the Verve Store would be a great place to shop!  All dies and matching stamps are on sale now!  Check it out!  Happy Friday!!  I hope yours has started out as wonderful as mine!

How wonderful to run into an old friend! Isn't it great to be able to catch up exactly where you left off? I love the soft feel of your card...you know I'm still googly eye over the felt flowers :)

I'm heading out with a girl friend this afternoon to a scrapbook store that is closing. Sad that it is closing, but hoping to get a few good deals!

Lovin' the felt flowers and the pop of turquoise with the ribbon. What a delightful event bumping in to your friend. Love when time doesn't seem to have passed after years when you meet up with a good friend. Happy Friday!!!
