Jen's Sketch Challenge 03-11

Time for another fantastic sketch by Jen del Muro. Our lives have been very insane lately and time I haven't had much time for crafting lately, so when I do sneak in a few moments or hours, those moments are treasured to me. Our priorities are right and we are doing what we need to do, but still I wish there were more hours in the day.

I find that when I do steal away a few moments, I make them count and make projects for specific events coming up. One of these days I will have time to just sit down and create but right now I don't have that luxury so when I sit down in my craft room, I make specific projects for specific people and that is ok!

I am a very blessed woman with some a-mazing friends! I made this card for my dear, sweet friend Leisha who I have known since High School. Leisha and I were friends in High School, but not super close. We always got along really well and admired each other, but we never developed one of those solid friendships.

Fast forward to a couple of years ago and we re-connected on Facebook. We started chatting over private messaging and then she met Jay and I at Disneyland with her kids on my birthday. Her kids had season passes and I got in free for my birthday, so they met us there and we all had a blast together! Ever since that day, Leisha and I have been very close. We have such a special bond and I love her with all my heart. She is in CA and I am now in CO, but thanks to Skype and free long-distance on our cell phones (and Facebook of course!) we are able to stay in contact. She is the most wonderful mother and friend and I have tremendous respect for her.
