Flowers and Friends

Hi again.  So glad the weekend is here.   I've nothing planned except to meet some friends and spend some time catching up.  I've missed my friends, being away for almost 3 months.  Emails and online chats are not the same as meeting face to face.

So, thinking about friends and friendships, I made this card today:

Close up view of the flowers

I am so grateful for my friends...they stand by me and cheer me up through good and bad times, they seek the good in me and want what's best for me.  No matter how far apart and how long we've not seen each other, the bond we share can never be broken.  What a blessing!

The colour inspiration for the card today is from the Embellish Magazine challenge.  I always think Embellish Magazine has such interesting challenges - I'm glad to be able to play along today.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a lovely weekend!

Stamps : Unity KOM Jan 2011 (bracket frame) & March 2011 (sentiment)
Paper : October Afternoon Thrift Shop, Webster's Pages
Ink : Distress Ink Tea Dye & Versafine Vintage Sepia
Others : Sizzix Flower 3D die, PTI felt, ribbon (dyed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam - Rockin' on Sunshine), Hero Arts Crochet trim, Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Border punch, Pearls

Hi Kary!

This is gorgeous!! Hope you had a wonderful time with your friends! Great to hear you have such amazing friends, we all need that!
Love the flowers on your card! I was to a craft show yesterday and saw these dies, MFT, right? I was doubting, but didn't do it, but they are wonderful! Happy to admire them with you! Love the papers as well, really pretty card!

Hugs, Wendy
