A Tuesday Card

As I've explained earlier, I mail one of my cards every Tuesday to a young friend; this is a habit I started years ago for a dear college friend who had been diagnosed with cancer.  I mailed her a card each Tuesday until her death more than a year ago.  About a year earlier, I had started creating and mailing a second card to a new friend who lived on an isolated cattle ranch in NE Oregon.  That friend has since moved to a valley ranch only 30 miles from me, but she still gets a card.  This week's card was created with paper from an old Authentique pad, as well as new stamps and coordinating dies from Verve: Great Friend and Great Kindness.

"Just because" is one of the best reasons to send a card and I know your young friend looks forward to receiving them. 30 miles is a fair distance. I send cards to friends right here in town. There's just something about happy mail. One friend and I occasionally visit or talk on the phone, but a large part of our correspondence is written in cards and letters. In that sense I'm old fashioned and glad of it. Your card is pretty and cheerful and those flowers are a nice way to use designer paper. Good for you, Evelyn!
