My Friend ~

Thank You for Being My Friend...



Don't you love this sweet image? I do! And thanks to my special friend Jennifer (Inkinupstamps) from the Stamp Shack, I have a few images now! :) This stamp is from Jennifer's local stamp store, Heather's Stamping Haven in Ottawa, Ontario and she said it is one of Heather's original designs. WoW! I wish I could shop in that store!

This pretty designer paper is one of my new favorites from Basic Grey ~ Lemonade. I even bought the buttons to match it, although I didn't use one here. I felt like this image speaks for itself so kept it very simple.

I've colored the image with Copic markers and since I only have a few colors it was a challenge to get it to coordinate with the background paper. I think it looks better in real life than here on the screen. Oh well. :)

This was my Sunday evening project and I was *trying* to set Blogger to post this in the morning rather than have two posts today. Obviously, it didn't work! I notice it shows Monday's date, but it's already on my blog. Whatever! :)

Wishing you all a Happy Monday and a *wonderful* week! I'll be back tomorrow with another card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge! Hint: watermelon! :)

Smiles 2 U!




Quote for Today ~
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. ~Henri Nouwen

Pam - I liked both the "friends" card and the B/W Happy Birthday card. I always have to use a sketch when starting a card, it makes creating sooo much easier. Have a great week - Gail S.
