Old School Reunion



A few weeks ago a lady I used to go to school with over 30 years ago contacted me through Friends Reunited, reminded of our schooldays when she looked out her teenage party photos to show her own teenage daughter; and last Saturday we had lunch together. We recognised each other straight away, and the time flew by in conversation so it was really great that she had got in touch.

I said I would send her a "sample" of my cardmaking so have made this fairly simple card which I think has a lovely sentiment appropriate to the occasion. I have used a Penny Black sentiment stamp, papers by Heidi Grace designs for Fiskars, Prima flowers and Papermania pearl brads. The shape and size of the card was heavily influenced by a card I recently received from Lorraine, reworked in my own colour scheme. Hopefully we will keep in touch so she will be on my Christmas card list from now on .. just goes to show its enver too late to revive old friendships :-)
