Sharing today a card that I made for a friend's birthday.  She was one of the first friends that I met after getting my first "real" job in Charlotte many years ago.  One of my funniest memories with this friend was her complaints one morning about not sleeping well because of the "idiots" who lived behind her and the party they were having.  I happened to have been at a party the previous night and, as it turned out, I was one of the reasons she had missed sleep! 
We worked together for 15 years, and she was the kind of friend that I could always count on and, above all, trust.  Friends like that are rare, you know.  She was truly the kind of friend who can know all of your faults and flaws and still be a friend.  I haven't seen her in years, and I have dropped the ball when it comes to staying in touch which, unfortunately, seems to be a strong suit of mine.  I think of her often and, when I saw on my calendar that I had missed sending a birthday card (on time), I decided to make this one for her. 
If you have a friend in your life (or  your past) like Lisa or, if you're like me and always seem to drop the ball when it comes to staying in touch, why not make a card today and let that person know that you still consider them one of your life's treasures?

Regina, this is a really cute card - good spin on a gate-fold card!
