Celebrating Friends

Just a quick post to say how much FUN I've been having celebrating with some friends over this 3-day holiday weekend! Special overnight visits, birthday celebrations, hugs and laughter, great meals, cake and ice cream, walks down country lanes, and looooong talks into the evening.  It doesn't get any better than that!  I have so much to share in coming posts, but I'm giving a little sneak peek of some birthday card fun. Instructions will be coming!

I couldn't help but wrap their gifts in a Giant Hershey-Filled Kiss! Instructions for that fabulous project are *HERE.*

We had flowers and party hats, too. You can see the full Party Hat Parade *here.*

The Party Hat TUTORIAL is now available, too!!

Q: What's the most recent fun you've had with your BFF's? I'd love to hear about it in the comments section!

I host a linky party! More info here.  I'm sharing the joy of friendship at:

Lovely project, Christina! Friend weekends are so much fun. Last year I was lucky enough to go on a friends week to Cabo...we all had such a great time! I'm anxious to see more of your BFF projects.

How Fun! Love this card, thanks for sharing. I found you at Make the Scene Monday, Alderberry Hill. Hey did you fix the "Kiss me I'm Irish" code?

My BF, Lisa, and I make it a point to get away several times a year. We just took a recent Sunday-Tuesday trip to the Chicago area to take a valentine card-making class at an Archiver's store. We each met up with friends for dinner the first night. She met up with a women she hadn't seen in 35 years. I met up with a couple I hadn't seen in 15 years. Got in some shopping, too. But whatever we do, whether it's a weekend trip, a long trip (Florida, Texas, California!) or just hanging out at home, we have the best time together. People always think we're sisters (or spouses depending on the situation!). We consider ourselves the sisters we'd have if we could choose!
