Friends For Life

I'm so happy it's Friday, and finally a chance to sit down and make a card.  Work has been so busy, and it feels so good to forget that for a little while.

I really love this image and sentiment by Angie Blom, from Vicki, Catherine & Leica Girls stamp set.  I'm pretty much a person who makes friends easily, but to have friends for life is a real blessing.  These are friends, who have been there for me through the good and difficult times.  I really thank God for them.  Here's a card dedicated to my "Friends for LIFE".

I did some colouring and paper piecing, and stamped the background with Classified Newsprint for some interest.  Last weekend, my friend and I went to a WA craft show, and I bought some metal leaf to try.  I adhered that to the little arrow wood veneer.

Hope you like the card :)

Happy weekend!
Kary

Kary, I just love that stamp. I started to use mine, but never finished it. I put it aside and moved on to another project and now it's floating in the Land of Unfinished Projects. I love the colors you used and I LOVE the metal leafing. I have yet to try that...but I really want to. Well, take care my FWF Forever friend. lol.
