Happy Memerorial Day and a Friendship Card

Good Morning and Happy Memorial Day from Houston, It's been very busy around here the past 10 days and I feel bad about neglecting my poor blog so I will be posting things on and off alot through this next week I have made a bunch of different projects I just need to photograph and get them posted.

I hope everyone has had a safe and happy holiday weekend, my husband and I made our first trip back to Galveston this weekend since Hurricane Ike hit the island last September and we are so pleased and happy to see all the recovery that is going on in the city it is almost completely back up and running. We were most pleased to see that the sea shore shop Murdoch's Bathhouse was being reconstructed and should be opened again in the spring of 2010.

I was also amazed at the power water has during a hurricane these are monuments that were built in very early 1900's to the construction of the sea wall in Galveston that was built to protect the city from storm surge.

Notice that the cap stones and the actual monument in it's self has been shifted by several inches it is an awe inspiring site to see this. These are several tons of solid granite and it will take a crane to reset these.

Well now onto the card I created for my Best Friend Kelly. She is so super sweet and has recently been through a rough patch in her life. She had to move from Houston back to PA last month and I miss her so much so I made her a card the other day after talking to her on the phone she just sounded like she needed a real pick me up so this is what I made her. The sketch came from Sketch Saturday #48 it was designed by Diane of Mad Ramblings.

Here is the card I created for my BFF.
