It's really been too long...

Hello! Well, it's finally Friday. There is just something about Friday's that I love. Maybe because it's the end of the week and maybe because you know that (if you work a M-F/ 9-5 type job) you don't feel rushed to get everything in before bed.  You know that you have a few days to just relax and chill, ya know? I love it no matter the reason. Tonight, Aaron went up to the VFW so it was just Ava and I. We sat out on the back patio and just talked..it was fun! It's dark now, so we came inside. Sometimes it's just nice to sit and talk..about everything and nothing with those you love.

I made this card for no one in particular, but I'm going to find someone to send this to that I miss..someone I haven't thought about maybe in a while or just haven't seen in a while. It'll be good to reconnect..it always is.  I was thinking this morning on our commute that up until about 5 years ago people had high school reunions to reconnect. They hadn't seen each other in years and they all were anxious to see how everyone looked and what they had been up to. Now, however, with things like Twitter and Facebook we already know these things. There is no need to REALLY reconnect with people because all you have to do is turn on the computer and you can see in living color what they're up to.  As much as I love my Facebook and all, I sure do miss being able to talk to people and let them tell you how things are and what they're up to...something just really sweet about that. Ok, well enough of my crazy talk..here is the card I made.



 It's for the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge . I love the sketch...such a fun and girly feeling sketch. I don't own any Waltzingmouse stamps (yet), so I knew that my Gossipabella would be perfect for the largest panel. And I felt the sentiment from Friends till the End by papertrey fit perfectly with my nostalgic mood for tonight. :0)

Ok, well that's it for now. I may stamp more tonight, but no more posts...hubby is home! Later! Thanks for stopping by..

I think in the back of my head, I was going for that retro vibe. I made the phone that old avocado color and tried to make those 70's circles. :0)

Great minds think alike Keva. I sat on our front porch last night with my youngest, just looking at tress, smelling flowers, watching the insects and talking about nothing. it was good.
Love the retro feel this has going on, and the dotted circles rock!
