New card - old friend moving away

This card created with my own design, double lace paper ribbon on SCAL, computer generated words, the purse from Mickey & Friends, 4 layers of cs instead of chipboard, and cuttlebug and gems on the purse. Oh, yeah, the glitter is actually purple, but shows blue here.
An old girlfriend is moving far away. Couldn't find sentiments to fit this situation and I remembered an email someone sent me on Mother's Day about the women in your life, and it seemed to fit exactly! A lot happens in a long friendship as ours; she's on husband #4, I had two babies that are now teens and coming up on adulthood real quick ;o). It's been an interesting journey between the two of us. I'll so miss her.
The inside didn't photo very well. Here's the verse:
Time passes, life happens, distance separates, children grow up, jobs come and go, love waxes and wanes, men come and go, hearts break, careers end, but girlfriends are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you. A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach. When you have to walk that lonesome valley, and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley's end.
Sometimes they will even break the rules and walk beside you, or come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends are always just a phone call away!
Now to get my graduation card done! TFL

Cuttlebug challenge & Cuttlebut spot challenge card

Gosh, this weekend has been very time consuming. I finally got my CB. Yeah!!!!! And I got 40% off at M's. Only had to wait a week because they were out of stock but I finally got one. So I've been very busy creating this card for the Mother's Day Cuttlebug Challenge, Be Inspired #29 here:
Also see the Cuttlebugspot Mother's Day Card Challenge #29. Deadline is Saturday, March 9, 2009. There's some beautiful cards here for inspiration.
My first SCAL, CB, and for that matter Cricut card!!! Oh, well, we have to start somewhere, don't we? And since I used my SCAL for the first time, I also downloaded Design Studio to upgrade my firmware. So it's been very time consuming, but here it is! Enjoy!
Now that I'm up and running, so to speak, I'll post some freebies tomorrow.
