So happy to have you

I was posting some cards during the middle of the night and my internet connection went down, argh.  I stayed up for awhile to see if it would come back, but it wasn't so I went to bed.  So that is so frustrating since then you feel like you had such a rhythm going and have to start over.  Here is a card that I had colored the image quite some time ago that is from TLC, Create and so is the sentiment and finally got to putting it all together.  I made this monochrome card for my best friend who we have been there for each other through SO MUCH over the 28 years.  I can't imagine life without her.  We have been through divorces, death of a spouse, children growing up, children getting married, children having kids, she shares her grandkids, and all the many conversations and secrets!!!!  It is more that we know each other's thoughts many times and just laugh.  Her daughter jokes that we should be a "couple", and she does respond that I have been more faithful than her husband was; however, she doesn't go for blonds, hehe.
