Me and My Friends….

                          s card 007 

I had an opportunity to make a Birthday card for my dear friend, Sharon, this last week.  I wanted to make a collage…always thought it would be fun….and it was.  I had some gorgeous printed tissue paper (thanks, Gracie) and it layered so well.  I threw in a few rough textures and she was done. 

We celebrated her birthday on Sunday with a trip to Trader Joe’s (new store) right here in Spokane, WA.  Lunch at a Bistro and then some thrifting.  Can it get any better than that?  Happy Birthday, sweet Sharon.

I only got an inside picture…but isn’t this store beautiful…look at those colors! I’m ready to go again….anyone want to join me? 

I hear rumors of another store or two in this area and a possible distribution point.  They said this was the biggest opening they have ever had…..How ‘bout that Spokane?




  1. cuuuute card, and I am sure she loved it, and enjoyed the time with you.


  2. Luv the card. Trader Joe's is coming to medford too. Whoohoo! Don't get over their often but will certainly stock up when I do.
