Hello? Hello? PPA178, STS#7




I used the sketch at Seize the Sketch this week with the wonderful color combo at Pals Paper Arts to create my card today.  I love that bold sentiment!  A simple hello is sometimes all it takes to brighten someone's day.  My favorite hello this week came from one of my very best friends who lives three hours away. It was cold and rainy when I returned from the grocery store the other day. After I pulled in the driveway I gathered some things up from the front seat, stuffed them into the front pouch of my sweatshirt, put my hood up and started to unload the groceries.  And then I heard a voice in my sweatshirt saying hello?  hello? Honest that cell phone of mine has a mind of its own! Somehow it knew that a quick call to my friend would make me laugh and feel so much better about lugging groceries in the rain.  I am going to toss that phone into my sweatshirt pouch more often and see who "calls me" next!
