{that's what friends do best}

remember this cake?

this was my last years Valentine project
I dragged some of you into this project with me
we struggled with this one together

that's what friends do best

 it was no easy feat getting that heart perfectly centred in that cake
it was just by pure luck that I had sweet victory
not to worry my sweet friends there is no challenge in
the works this year
but I know if I had something up my sleeve
you guys would be right there with me

that's what friends do best
 plus a big thank you HUG  for all the well wishes
you sent my way in the last post

that's what friends do best

I am happy to report I am feeling 80% better

thank you for being such sweet friends

"Good friends always let us know
that we're special and why"

YES. SPECIFICS. And let me give YOU a few:

You are special because:

1. You really and sincerely care about your friends by leaving them messages.
2. You always listen. I know. I met you, I CHATTERED AWAY and you listened and asked me questions.
3. You are creative and you SHARE your ideas with us.
4. You only bring LIGHT and not darkness into Blogland.

YOU ARE SPECIAL, KORALEE....and what you do, you do best.

Hi Koralee!
I'm so glad you're on the mend! I hope you're getting extra rest now that we're into the weekend.
It's so funny you're posting about the heart cake challenge! I was just looking at the pan I used for my part in the Valentine's Day challenge. I'm smiling here because I know that I need to try that again sometime.
I also want to say that all the comments here are so true! I especially love what Anita wrote. What a dear sweet person we all have the blessing to call friend.
Wishing you a lovely, sweet and cozy Sunday.
Sending you lots more get well wishes to take on that 20% that still lingering.
God bless you dear heart,
~ Maria

HOly smokes, I would have NEVER been able to pull off that cake. It looks so beautiful though, and how wonderful would that be to cut into it only to see a Heart inside. Love that.
I am glad you are feeling better...80% is a good improvement.
You got to meet Anita??...I haven't met her yet, but she is a doll.
Good friends are people who when we walk away from them....we smile because they just made us feel good.
