Friendship Blessings

Today I was blessed to go to lunch with a dear friend that I haven't seen in a loooooooong time.  It's been so long, that I cannot even remember the last time I saw her.  I knew we would have loads to chat about and would probably stay longer than most of the other lunch crew.  It only seems right that we leave our waiter/waitress a thank you note for putting up with all the giggles, tears, and drink refills.  :)  An extra tip never hurts either.  ;)

Hopefully Chandra was blessed.  I know Tammie and I were blessed just thinking of thanking someone who might not get thanked for often for her hard work. 

When I started making this card I knew I wanted it to be pink because that is Tammie's favorite color.  Lucky for me the designers at the Colour Q were in a pink mood too, because they picked Fabulous colors for me to work with.  I hope to make another card this week using these colors.  You have plenty of time to play along too!

In hindsight, I probably should have brought along a masculine card.  Soon after we sat down a male waiter came to take our drink orders and I thought, "I hope he likes pink".  LOL 

I wish I had taken a picture of what Tammie wrote inside.  It was so sweet, just like her.  Hopefully we made this young woman feel appreciated and cared for.

Here's my challenge for you!  If you are a cardmaker, make a card to thank a stranger who provides a service for you.  Could be the guy who changes your oil or the lady who helps you load groceries in your car.  If you are NOT a cardmaker, then use a store bought card, stationery, post it notes or index cards.  Just let the person know that what they are doing has made a difference in your day.

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

How thoughtful! Such a beautiful card you created. This reminds me of some time ago...Dh and I were eating out with his cousin, who has a ministry using animal (and more complex) balloons. He put the tip inside the balloon!
