Today is my dear friend Val's birthday and this card is the one that I made when we were together stamping last Friday! We met just a little over a year ago on Splitcoast, over a comment that I made on one of her beautiful cards. After we discovered that we both lived in Orlando, we were able to get together to meet and we've been great friends ever since! To top it off, our birthdays are only a day apart! She's like a sister to me and knows me so well and stamping together is one of life's great pleasures - even though we don't get the opportunity often enough! She loves the Asian theme so we both used Asian Artistry to create similar cards as we spent our stamping time doing something totally stress free - not stamping for anything other than pure pleasure! So, here's to you, Val, and I hope your birthday is every bit as special as you are to me! Love you!
