Best Thoughts - Sentimental Sunday

Freshly Made Sketches 193 

Sentimental Sunday is something I created for my blog and it's the day of the week I like to recognise someone special in my life.

The "you're in my thoughts" sentiment from the Best Thoughts Stampin' Up! Hostess stamp collection doesn't have to be sombre does it? It could literally mean that you are in fact 'in my thoughts'. And this person is often in my dear friend Shannean.

Shannean...aka Shanni, and I met at my very first Stampin' Up! Convention in Canberra in 2012 and has not only been an amazing friend, but also a huge support to me in my business and personal life.
Even though Shanni lives over 2,500km away in beautiful Cairns, we connect frequently and enjoy each others friendship. 

I also made this card for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week.

This is a photo of my gorgeous friend Shannean and I at the Stampin' Up! Convention this year on the Gold Coast. 

You're always in my thoughts Shanni, thanks for being an awesome friend. Actually thanks for being more like a sister! Love ya guts.
