Hi, There!

I love surprises and a friend called me out of the blue and said lets go to lunch.  He use to be one of my bosses in work and I miss him.  He was very nice to me and we became friendly over the years.  So I met him and his wife at a country club in New Jersey and they treated me to an awesome lunch and even had a 4th of July plant for be as a surprise little gift.  So thoughtful.  It absolutely made my day!!  So once I got home from work, I knew exactly what I wanted to create for them as a thank you card and here it is!  So thank you Bob and Julie - if you read my blog - not sure!!  Hope everyone is safe for this US holiday and enjoy some good times with good friends - good for the soul!!  Big Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
