Miss Our Times

So....this is another card passed up for publication.  It's okay.  That means, more to share here!


The pattern running vertically down the card was stamped with Wplus9's Magical Moments set.  The sentiment is by Stampendous.  I rely upon that set (Sincere Sentiments) a lot.  It's got just what you need for sympathy, get well, and thinking of you.


Gosh, this card would be appropriate for so many lovely friends I've met along the way in life.  I do miss hanging out with them.  Child-raising years can limit one's time to get together with our pals.  Now that my two kiddos (15 and 12) are more self-sufficient, I'll have to schedule some precious time with dear friends.

Some great friendship quotes:
"Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend."
- Albert Camus 
"Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
- Muhammad Ali
"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
- Marcel Proust

What a beautiful card and sentiment. I'm trying to keep up with friends but it does get harder especially now that Sophie's in school. I can't imagine what it'll be like in a few years when she has other things going on too. Sigh...

You make kraft look so elegant. I'm a collector of sentiment sets. You can never have too many. I have this sentiment, too, in another set. It is important to focus on your children as they grow up, but you can never underestimate the value of friendship.
