For a very special friend

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! Today, I am sharing with you a card I made for our friend Edgardo.  I wanted to thank him for being such a special friend and for always being there for us. He is the kind of friend, that is always available when you call him, that make you laugh until you cry and that never says no. These past weeks he took me to the doctor's office twice and he even baked this gorgeous cake for my niece's baby shower.  It was not only beautiful, but also delicious!!

I wanted to reciprocate everything he does for us so I bought him a copy of this book, I knew he desperately wanted.
And here is the card I created for him.
