Special Friend

Hi!  What a beautiful morning it is here.  Everywhere is white and sparkly with frost but the sun is shining and it's warm in the craft room!  Mr C has been in bed since Sunday with a fluey kind of thing but is feeling a bit better today.  He really must be feeling awful as he is NEVER off work, thankfully.  I'm having another day in the craft room as I've several birthday cards to do for March and as we are away then I'll need to get organised.  The card this friend is for is the one I go on most of my jaunts with.  She is soon off to America for 6 weeks and is spending her birthday this year at Florida Keys.  Her card is made but I don't have a pressie yet ... I'm doing that tomorrow but need inspiration!
