Beautiful Flowers from Beautiful Friends

As some of you already know, last week one of my best friends and I took a trip to the east coast to see the sights and meet a couple other stampers.  Unfortunately, my trip was cut short due to my becoming ill and requiring emergency surgery to remove my gall bladder.  I did get to meet Joanne (YAY!!!) but was not able to meet Julia or Anne (WAAAAH!)  I truly hope another opportunity will present itself when I can meet Julia and Anne, too.

Therefore, I haven't felt well enough to make cards to share with you, but I did want to share pictures of a beautiful bouquet of flowers I received from five very dear friends.  What a bright spot to my day!

The orange roses are exquisite! I like the fact, too, that the flowers are in a ceramic pumpkin container (with lid) that I can use and think of my sweet friends when I do.

Thank you, Cindy, Patty, Shirley, Joanne, and Traci!

I plan to share a few trip photos  and hope to be back to stamping very soon!

Have a great day!

These are beautiful, Charlene! What a wonderful thoughtful gift! I'm sure this brought sunshine to your day! Hope each day finds you getting better. Hugs!

Charlene, I'm so sorry to hear about emergency surgery. I sure hope you feel better now. The flowers are GORGEOUS & love the reusable pumpkin. I have a soft spot for shiny ceramics.

Well, bless your heart, Charlene! The flowers are so beautiful and thoughtful. I am so sorry that your trip was shortened for such a rotten reason. I sure hope you are feeling better by the minute.
Hugs to you,
