Filling in time.

What do you do to pass the time when you find yourself pacing, thinking of the moment when it'll be time to say 'good-bye' to your dearest friend and her beautiful family before they move away? Make a card of course!!
I never thought it would to be so difficult and sooo emotional to say good-bye to our friends today. I just kept saying to myself 'be strong, you'll see them again soon' and then I was saying aloud 'I'm not going to cry'. Well, we all sobbed like babies. (Yep, and here I go starting again!). It's become a sort of tradition to stand in our driveway and wave to them as they leave our street and drive away. Could NOT do that today. Way too hard. Jackie even sobbed walking out the door 'don't come out' and I just shook my head to say I wouldn't. There was no way I could do that today. Talk about ripping my heart out.
Oh dear, another tissue please!
On to a happier note hey?
My dear friend Jackie found this great digi image (among others) at Bugaboo. I just love their sentiments that go with each image.
I sat and made this card this afternoon to kill the time. (I was going mad!)
All the paper is stampin' up and I've distressed the edges. (I call that 'therapy') The buttons and flowers are from my stash and of course I coloured her with my trusty copics.

Here is a close up of the sentiment. Don't you just love it? It went so well with my house today as well. (no, there are no photos of that!)
Thankyou all for stopping by and listening to the rants of a sooky woman.
Keep creating, Kylie xo

What a wonderful card you have created. Love all the edges and fantastic saying. Might just borrow that for my fridge. It's not the same but thankfully the internet makes this world a closer place and Jackie will feel like she is next door.

Hi Kylie,
What a great card! It totally fits with my way of thinking. I have a mug that reads 'Housework can not kill you, but why take the risk'! There are far more important things like crafting & friends. I'm so sorry Jackie has moved away. But I'm sure you will always keep in touch. I'm guessing the Jackie in question is Jackie Thomas. She seems such a lovely person, I can understand why you are so upset, but she will always be your friend. This is when you need a big hug & other friends to help you. Well I have long arms, not long enough, but use your imagination. Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog. Wishing you all the very best for 2010.
Special Big Hugs,
Andie xx
