Operation Owl

You can find friends in some crazy locations! I find myself making friends on the internet more and more these days. Although my new friends are people I have never met and may never meet, they seem to be in the same stage of life as me (plus they LOVE to craft just like me). It is so wonderful to have new friends! I am reminded of the Girl Scout song... Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver the other is gold! I have had the great opportunity in making a new friend in Kristal Andrew from getting Getting Cricky dot com :). Kristal is a very special person, from the moment I found her blog I knew she was not like most. She has an amazing gift to give the most inspirational blogs that I have ever read. She is uplifting and great food for the soul. If you have not had the opportunity to check out her blog please do! http://www.gettingcricky.com/
Kristal not only blogs but she sells amazing stamps at a low cost and donates a portion of her profits to different charities she has researched. I LOVE her stamps! I have three sets and can not wait to get more! So be sure to check those out as well!
Anyhow the purpose of this post.... Kristal has a Design Team (an amazing Design Team I might add) and there term with her is sadly coming to an end. :( We will miss the design team greatly! (No worries I will still follow everyones blogs so I will still have my eye on you! ;)). So as there time comes to an end they are thanking Kristal for a wonderful term and making sure she knows how wonderful she is. I thought I would send her some love with a card of my own. THANK YOU KRISTAL ANDREW! You have touched the lives of many and mean a great deal to us. You are an amazing person, never change. God has sent you to us and we are some lucky ducks! So thanks for being you girl!!

I went with the owl theme (because Kristal loves owl's and this is operation owl) I used the create-a-critter cartridge and the stamp comes from Kristal's stamp line Fashionable Friends

Some people come into our lives
and leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never ever the same.

Some people come into our lives
and quickly go... Some stay for awhile
and embrace our silent dreams.

They help us become aware
of the delicate winds of hope...
and we discover within every human spirit
there are wings yearning to fly.

They help our hearts to see that
the only stairway to the stars
is woven with dreams...
and we find ourselves
unafraid to reach high.

They celebrate the true essence
of who we are...
and have faith in all
that we may become.

Some people awaken us
to new and deeper realizations...
for we gain insight
from the passing whisper of their wisdom

Throughout our lives we are sent
precious souls...
meant to share our journey
however brief or lasting their stay
they remind us why we are here.

To learn... to teach... to nurture... to love

Some people come into our lives
to cast a steady light
upon our path and guide our every step
their shining belief in us
helps us to believe in ourselves.

Some people come into our
lives to teach us about love...
The love that rests within ourselves.

Let us reach out to others
and feel the bliss of giving
for love is far richer in action
that it ever is in words.

Some people come into our lives
and they move our souls to sing
and make our spirits dance.

They help us to see that everything on earth
is part of the incredibility of life...
and that it is always there
for us to take of its joy.

Some people come into our lives
and leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never ever the same.
