Card for a very special friend

As the school year ends, I am so happy to have summer break right around the corner but it is also very bittersweet. If you read the posts below I mentioned that several of my close friends from work are leaving, either due to a new job or retiring. Well I have one more to add to the list. Our Kindergarten teacher who is one of my very closest friends will be moving away. She is the most positive person I know and always has a smile on her face. She is a wonderful teacher (hence why she was just chosen as Master Teacher of the Year). I just can't even imagine what it will be like next year without her. Her room is close to the office and when she has a little one in trouble or needs some assistance she always intercoms the office and announces that "she could use a friend". Through the tears the past week we have joked about her calling me from several hours away when she gets moved to tell me  "she could use a friend". Over the past few years I have been trying to convince her to come and make cards and scrapbook with our group and she finally decided she was ready. Her youngest son moved away to college and her husband travels alot for work like my husband so we were going to start crafting together. And then what happens-- their house sells and now she will be moving away. :-(  She will be missed so much--not only as an awesome Kindergarten teacher but as a fantastic friend!!
So here is the card I made for her to go with a picture frame I gave her that says- "The best things in life...... are not things." Love that saying!
