With all that being said, I want you to know that FRIENDSHIP was the inspiration for today's card. I was coloring sweet Milla from the new Series 2 Hearts & Hugs Collection from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design, and I thought she would make the perfect friendship card. I used the wonderful sketch from Beate Johns' weekend sketch challenge #95. It doesn't have all of the elements from the sketch, but I think you can still see most of it. The DP is from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie paper pad, and it is one of my favorite sets from Basic Grey!!! All the colors are fabulous and so very cheerful...which translates into the creation of vibrant, happy cards:o) I tell you, this awesome craft has some of the loveliest extras that keep us smiling...maybe a little too much if you know what I mean*Ü*
Well, it is time for me to head on out of here. Time to get back to the "busy" stuff. I thank you for visiting with me today, and I hope your day is filled with all the blessings you so richly deserve. I am extremely thankful for all the friendships I have been blessed with in this wonderful world of blogging.
