It's been a long day and a very long week. I realized that so much goes on inside of me and I have noone near me to pour my heart out to. It is at times like these that I long for my best friends ... my sisters. I know that we were born sisters but we became friends. I read somewhere about what makes a good friend. Being a good friend and having a good friend can enrich your days and bring you lifelong satisfaction. But friendships don't just happen. They have to be created and nurtured. That is what I love so much about my sisters. We are all separate: our stories, no matter how similar, come to a fork and diverge. We are drawn to each other because of our similarities but it is our differences that we have learned to respect. Together, we have grown. As I crafted tonight I thought about all the tears, laughter, bright moments and sorrow we have shared over the years. And I said a prayer that they too remember these bonds and know that I am always thinking of them with love and gratitude.
Chocolate Bar Slider Card
One of my favorite crafts to make are chocolate bar slider cards. (Probably because I have a serious chocolate addiction!). For this project I used all Close to My Heart products: Ribbon Rounds (Spring Blossom and Summer Carnival) Inks (Bubblegum, Black, Citrus Leaf and Sunkiss Yellow) Stamp Setss (Easter Eggs and Playful Flourishes)
