Crafty Collaboration

A couple of weeks ago, during my work break (which coincided with my hubby's trip to Southern California), I was fortunate enough to visit with my great friend, fellow science geek and crafty gal, Jill Grace (and finally meet her sweet hubby Ray!). We were able to squeeze in some crafty time and decided to whip up a card for another good friend, Dawn Stein.  Dawn has been very sweet and supportive to both Jill and I over the last year or so.  For Jill, it was during the time of doing her Masters' thesis.  For me, it was during my time of being out of work.  So, this is what we came up with....

Dawn is loves pelicans so we couldn't resist using my Surf & Turf set from Paper Smooches.  I have to confess that Jill did 95% percent of this card all on her own (including the absolutely BRILLIANT pier).  The only thing I am responsible for on this card is the little yellow fish and the bubbles.

Jill also added this special return address....

A big thanks to Dawn for being so fabulous and supportive and to Jill for being so brilliantly creative and making cocktails while we crafted! Jill and Ray were great hosts during our visit to Southern California.  Of course, big hugs to both of them for being such great friends, even though they both live far away.

Have a fabulous day and give a friend a hug.  If they are far away, call them or send them an email.... let them know you are thinking of them.

Thanks for being my blog reading friends.  Big hugs to all of you.
