A donut in tribute of Mercedes Weber | #tgifc100

Hello my dear friends.

I have been friends with Mercedes Weber since 2013 when we first were celebrating one of our most proudest moments together in our lives.  I live on the East Coast and she lives the West Coast of North America.  We were joined by our creative love through a company called Stampin' Up! We have shared many ups and downs.  Sometimes its easier to say the hardest things to people outside your current environment.  And that's what she continues to be.  Like a secret society... that lives in a fancy compound where no one can find us. Except its not just Mercedes, there's 10 of us.  And we would be the 2013 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team.  I have never met a group like it.  And I am certain I will never again.  I am so grateful to have gotten to know that group of ladies and will forever call them my friends.

Yup Mercedes.
When I think of her I think about Karaoke and Piano Bars.  Some green drinks and some blue drinks. I think about hoodies.  I think about California raisins. And rocks. And pins.  And cute irregular sized cards.

But mostly when I see a donut I think about Mercedes.
Yup. Donuts.

She made a card once.  And it was years ago.  In fact, its the one in the picture below.  I wonder if Jeanna whom made the graphic connects Mercedes with donuts as much as me. (Jeanna is also part of the special group of 10.)

Does Mercedes love donuts?  I don't know.
But she made that card and she's pretty much a genius.

So I made a donut. 
For her... except not for her. 
Another reminder of great friends in beautiful warm places.

You are going to want to know what's in the container.  Well, it's a CUPCAKE.
Yes. A cupcake. 
That's not a donut.
You see, you can really never know exactly what I am up to... and I wanted the cupcake... not the donut for a friend that was sick on her birthday.  She is working hard lately... besides who wouldn't want a cupcake in the shape of a unicorn?

Cupcake is from Sugar Mama's in Mount Pearl Newfoundland
Happy Birthday Nieresa.
Don't forget to take a moment to yourself in the midst of taking care of everyone else.

I hope your day is as sweet as you are...

You have a week to play along with our TGIF Challenge.  It's our 100th so please join us!!
