A School House Friend (FMS #42)

This weeks Freshly Made Sketches #42 was perfect to use my new Story Time designer series paper.  After completing the card, I was reminded of my childhood best friend, Gabriela Gomez.  I met her on the first day of school in 1st grade and we where like peanut butter & jelly.  She was wearing a yellow chaffon dress patiently waiting for our teacher Ms. McCarthy.  Gaby went home to be with our Heavenly Father seven years later and I still miss her to this day.  Kenny Chesney reminds me of Gaby every time I hear his song, ‘Who You’d You Be Today.’

FUND RAISER FOR AUSTIN MOORE:  A little boy in my community is fighting leukemia.  You can read about him on his Facebook.  A local company is sponsoring a CHRISTMAS IN JULY for Austin Moore Fundraiser on July 14th at the Courtyard by Marriott in Vacaville, California.  I will also contribute by donating ALL profits for any Stampin’ Up! purchases made through me during the month of July.


  1. Call me (707-646-1972), email me directly with your order, browse though the catalog, or shop on-line directly.
  2. ALL profits during the month of July will go directly to Austin Moore’s family to help with medical costs.

MAGGIE MADE TIPS:  The actual stamp has a little girl next to the little boy.  I covered the little girl with tape and inked up the boy.  Before stamping it, I peeled the tape off and only used the little boy.
