Remember...You Have A Friend In Me

Card #83, 84, 85

Did you know that March 26 is MAKE UP YOUR OWN HOLIDAY DAY?  No really, it is.  Abby told me about it.  She has a link on her blog that takes you to all the Bizarre and Unique Holidays for March.  
Well, I can't pass up an opportunity like this!  So I am making up my own Holiday.  It's called FRIENDS DAY.  Awww.  How sweet.  :)  
I love card making! 
I made 1/2 a dozen of these cards today for my new Holiday.  3 pink elephants and 3 blue elephants. I was going to somehow incorporate the peanut into this card too, but just could not find a fitting sentiment.  Sheree and I were Skype messaging last night with different options.  One I came up with is, "I love you like an elephant loves peanuts." OK, what does that say to the person receiving the card? I want to eat you?  Ummm, wrong message! LOL  We were being silly and coming up with all kinds of corny, awkward sentiments.  Here's another one, "We both have our talents. I never forget and you smell like peanut butter."  LOL  Silly, silly girls.
Today, I finally settled on a sentiment.  The outside says, "REMEMBER" and the inside says, "You have a friend in me."  Perfect for my new Holiday, don't you think?  Much better than thinking someone wants to eat me.  Just say NO to cannibal cards. hahaha

Card #86, 87, 88
