Sue Ann = Most Creative Friend (not in blogland)

Grateful Thursday
I am blessed with good friends...and Sam is one of the best, and one of the most creative! I qualified that by saying "not in blogland" as I sure did not want to step on anyones toes here~ Sam has been my friend for nearly as long as I have known DH...30 our guys were pals before we were their gals.
For my birthday this year Sam sent me this little box she made. I opened it up not knowing what to expect and then I found these and it's hard to share them with out feeling incrediably humble and honored I think you will see what I mean... each card has a front like this and a back...
And this little matchbook like book was on top of the
wrapped package
and this is Miss Sue Ann and me
on July 4th at her place in Oregon,
she took the photos that we both took that day,
turned them into black and white,
cut out the parts of me she wanted to show
and you have had the gift of seeing
what she produced
Thank you Sam
