"HEY FRIEND - Just Saying Hello"

Made this cute card to send to a friend. In this age of texting one forgets to call or to write a note to each other. There is something to say about human contact, it is always something that one yearns for. If you are like me when I go to bed at night I pray, I think and pray for all that are close to me and that I love. I pray for other things that have filled my day and when I finish I think often of some that I haven't heard from in many days, weeks or even months. I always think tomorrow I will call but my tomorrows never happen and again the days become weeks and weeks become months. Sad to think about it.

I made my Card from Graphic 45 papers: On the Dot, Hopscotch, Buttons A La Mode, and Mantique.
I also did all my distressing using Tim Holtz Inks: Aged Mohagany, Broken China, and Tea Dye. I used ColorBox Chestnut to stamp the Clock from the 7Gypsies Venice Stamp collection. The cute stamp that says "Hey Friend-just saying hello" is from Basic Grey. I stamped it on a tag using Black Memento ink. The Antique Bronze Brads and ribbons really dress the tag and the pocket of the card.

Remember to make beautiful cards but more importantly take time to call your family and friends.
