My Best Friend Jacqui

Well, this is certainly not the most becoming picture of either of us, the rare beauties that we are, nor is it the worse............ummm there are some kicking around of me taking a bite out of a very special cake that Jax made for my Birthday a few years ago.
I just LOVE this woman...........believe it or not, we met online about six years ago and through Stampin' Up! Our paths would have never crossed if we both didn't have a common interest.
I am blessed that if anything, this hobby brought us together.
It's funny how you can get a feeling about a person through cyber correspondance..............I have to tell you that in the time that we've known each other, we've shared laughs, tears, big belly laughs, frustrations, hurt.........well you know, a range of emotions.............and a little silliness too.
Although we live several hours apart, we still manage to see each other a few times a year. We stay in contact over the phone and through email and messenger.
I have been blessed to meet so many wonderful people in the Stamping Community, who have become my friends!
Anyway, I'm going to see Jax tonight!!!! Yay! I'm hoping that we get cut loose a little early from work with it being the Holiday Weekend.................we (Jon's coming too!) should arrive just after dinner and will celebrate Canada Day with she and her Family.
Then we are off to another Dear Friend, Kristi to spend a week with Her, Hanna, Mark and the Dogs! We'll Celebrate our first Independence Day with them! I am very excited about that although I have watched festivities on television, I've never experienced them for real!

Oh, I almost forgot about the card! That's why I'm here isn't it?? lol!!! I purchased this image with my first order from In Style Stamps.
The reason that I purchased this image, apart from it being so darn cute, is that it is called Jax, which is my pet name for Jacqui!

I used Pumpkin Pie as my card base with Kiwi Kiss Accents. Melon Ribbon, DP is from Debbie Mumm and I also used SU Tag, Flower and Border Punches!
I am going to preschedule some posts for while I'm away and hope that they load.
Happy Stamping


  1. Ah ya made me cry ya bum!
    I love you too. That image is cute. I think I have an orange shirt, and I can borrow Joel's orange Crocs and I have some blue capris I think I could pull of this look!!!
    I just got my hair chopped so a little bit of Got2B glue and could totally work this image!!!!!
    I think my ankles are a little thicker....but a little bit of Photoshop can fix that right up!
    I can't wait to see you.
    Counting the hours!
