A Friend Forever

An image from The Paper Shelter

A look at the layers

This is a card I made for my dear friend Wendy. Wendy is the one who got me hooked on card making. She has been a dear friend who has stood beside me in good times and bad. She has one of the most giving hearts and always sees the best in everyone. Plus, she has the same goofy personality I have. She and her sweet husband Mark are moving from Idaho to Washington. She will be closer to her grand-kids and I know she and they will love that. I will miss her in so many ways but I know we will be forever friends. Wendy, I will pray that the Lord will continue to bless you in every way and that He will continue to enable you to share your wonderful talents with the new friends you will make. I hate to see you go but I know we will always be friends. Thank you my dear friend for all that you have done for me, God bless and keep you.
I know you will know this card was made with love just for you!
My Song: Michael W. Smith
Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
Can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter in your life is through
But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong 
And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long to live as friends.

What a beautiful card. I got home today after spending a few hours with you and in my mail box was your card. You are such a special friend and I love you dearly!! I cherish each card you have made for me and even though I'm a bit further away from you, you will always be close to my heart. Thank you my dear wonderful friend. I will miss you so very much. May God continue to bless you and I'm only a phone call or a plane ride away. Love you, {{{hugs}}} Wendy
