Sweet Fairy Girl

My girlfriend, AY just had a birthday on Sunday.  We've known each other for 29 years!!  That's a long, long time, isn't it? We've been through so many seasons of life together - fun holidays, crazy scary white water rafting trips, shopping, seeing our mums through heart bypasses, funerals of loved ones, being burgled, hours and hours of non-stop chatting & our love for food.

We always, always go out to celebrate each other's birthdays, but this year I'm away so we'll have get together when I get home next month.  AY said I should save a card and hand it personally to her.

I'm happy to do so, but, I thought it would be nice to dedicate a card to her as well on my blog.  Here's the card, with a sweet image from Summer Fairies stamp set: 

It's a pretty simple card, with the Fairy girl as the focal image. The two handmade flowers were made with the Imaginisce Petal Roller. It's really easy to use and I think the flower looks much neater, than doing it without the tool.

I know AY doesn't read my blog but I think I'm gonna send her the link ;-)  Just so she knows I'm thinking of her.  It's so precious to have an "old" friend - someone who looks out for me, and speaks the truth always and most of all, one who has touched & enriched my life.  Happy Birthday, AY!  I'm so thankful for your love & friendship.  It means a lot.
