A Sweet Friendship

Wow, a month since I posted last, well I have a good
reason for that.  A "sweet" friend and I went to visit my
                              Mom out of state for a few weeks.  It was a
fabulous trip.  

So when I got home I had to make her a card to thank her
for going with me.  My Mom loves her too and calls her,
her adopted daughter.  This friend means more to me
than I can out into words.

I used this week's sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches
to create this card.

Here is my card.

I LOVE how this card turned out.  I created the background
using Distress Oxides, Abandon Coral and Fossilized Amber.
              I really like how these two color blend together.  I recently got a
few spiritual stamp sets.  The above was from a stamp from the
Penny Black set called "Faith"  I am sure you will see
more card made using these stamp sets.  I stamped
it using the Catherine Pooler Ink Coral Cabana.  The
vine/branch is a CP die from one of the SOA boxes.

I will share this card on the following challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch - due 9/23
Crafting with an attitude - anything goes - due 10/3
Little Miss Muffet - anything goes - due 10/5
