Back in December, I was very sorry and sad to say goodbye to a really good friend at work.  I've known Val for 3 years, and although she was only working in the office one day a week we became very closing, having the same kind of humour, worth ethic and both have kids.  She has always been there when I needed a shoulder to cry on or have a whinge, and would always brighten up the office whenever she was in.

She has left to spend some more time with her daughter Anna, and I will miss her terribly.

Work asked me to make her a leaving card, so I made a newspaper one.  After being given a few 'headlines' to use this is what I came up with:

I then wanted to make Val a special card just from me, and had the ideal digi stamp in mind to use.  With another colleague we were the 3 musketeers at work, but now I'm the only one left in the office :(, and this image really does sum up the 3 of us and our relationship outside work!

The image is a bugaboo one, which has been coloured with promarkers, and matted onto kraft card.  Some pretty dp  and a ribbon and hand tied bow, complete the card

I'd like to enter the 'Friends don't let Friends wine alone card, into the following challenges:

Val loved both cards, although the bottom one made her cry because of what I'd written inside (it was nice!), and truth be told I cried when I wrote it.

We will definitely keep in touch, and in fact for Christmas she has organised for me to spend the day with her, with a trip around Windsor Castle, which I am really looking forward to doing.
