I met my BFF!!!

I must tell you a little story...last summer,I met this lady,Anne,on a site for people that have rec'd or waiting for an organ. Anne had rec'd a liver,like I am waiting for mine. So we found each other,she is also from Ontario but 8 hrs away from me. We have been emailing each other everyday and call each other once in awhile . She has helped me sooooo much through this waiting period,cause if anyone knows how I feel,it is her,having gone through it. It has been almost 9 yrs since she has had her transplant and doing extremely well. She had a rough time prior to the tx but like she says,well worth it now.

So when I was telling her about going on my trip,knowing she lives close to airport,I asked her if she would like to drive to our motel room cause we had to stay overnight in Toronto before flying to Dominican the next morning. Well if she could of screamed any louder,I think I'd be deaf,lol. So we did meet,do we look happy or what????
She is the nicest lady I have ever met,she is my mentor. We we're suppose to meet only when I rec my tx,she was to come and visit me at the hospital which will be 2 hrs away from her home.
But God has taken care of me once again,we met earlier!!! We each had a gift for each other,with butterfly stuff of course.

I will be sending her this card to Thank her for the beautiful gift she gave me and to also Thank her to drive there to meet us.

So this card is for Anne and I'm entering it for the Just Cute Bears challenge which was to use yellow and green.

My card is all SU cs,dp,brads & ribbon.

Hope you all have a great tuesday!
