Happy Mail...Happy Thoughts!!!

A great friend has just undergone surgery and even though I have known it was coming for weeks, I did not start her 'feel better' card until the day of her surgery...then of course it's taken me about a week to get it right...(can't visit her right now as she is halfway across the country!)

So, finally...I think I've got it right...I'm excited to have a card in the mail for her at the very least! Check it out...
