Surprise Gift

Hi there . Welcome to my room . Thank you for calling in .Well What a fabulous day ..all day .
I believe that I am surrounded by the most beautiful friends .I do hope that they know that  I love them dearly . That they all  help to keep me grounded , happy and content with life .
Doug and I usually go for a tea and scone breakfast on a Friday and this morning Fran and Sandy were waiting for us at our usual table . For those who visit my blog know that these ladies are craft friends who come to share card making at our home .
After brecky they went off to do their own thing and Doug and I went to meet some of his friends 
for another coffee .
I felt a tap on my shoulder and it was Jane , another crafting friend  , calling by to chat .
Now Jane also comes to card making on Friday afternoon , so we saw her again after lunch .
 I thought  all that was my surprise for the day ..but no!
A Stampin'Up buddie Kay , called in home  to say hi .
And with arms full ..

Kay had been to Canberra for SU conference and thought of me while there . Brought back a pen , a card holder and this fantastic reusable SU bag for me . The bunch of flowers were an extra RAK..
Thank you Kay .We don't get together as often as we would like but hope  we can have a craft afternoon again soon .
Here is a card that was  made today ..


   Card stock, ribbon  and paper from SU .Label punch SU . Sentiment ...Lucy's Stamps . Butterflys SU .
                          My heartfelt thought for today ..

                                       I breathed a song into the air,
                                        it fell to earth , I know not where ;
                                       for who has sight so keen and strong ,
                                        that it can follow the flight of song ;
                                       the song from beginning to end ,
                                         I found it again in the heart of a friend.
                                                                   - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow .
 Enjoy your weekend .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Oh what a fun day for you Shirley-anne!
My daughter just shared the same poem on her blog last week. Me thinks there's a reminder in it for me so I'd best be paying attention. =)
Lovely card, too!
