Well we all have that special friend from our childhood or at least I hope you do, and mine was Elinor White. She and I spent our summer days laying on our backs in our "blanket tent", eating a sleeve of crackers and day dreaming. I'm the cute adorable blonde on the right of this image and Ellie ( that's what she is called now) is the silly looking one on the left. Where did she get that hat? Well, I'll tell you a secret about me growing up....my Mom wouldn't let me shave my legs until I was like 13 yrs. old and I should have wore knee high socks to hide the fur that was growing on my legs. She had a good point though...once you start you have to keep it up. Well I went to school with band aids all over my legs after the first time and you gotta admit, Moms are pretty smart cookies and when they tell you something it's for a good reason. Anyway that's my card for using ribbon with a message, and my message is...we all need to cherish our best friends. Elinor and I are still friends even though she lives in New Jersey now. We see each other every summer when she comes back to Michigan to their summer cottage.
Have a great weekend everyone and keep those fingers inky.
