Friends are the Sunshine of Life!

Friends are the Sunshine of Life! Isn't that so true? I have been very blessed to have made friends during all the different phases of my life & I've been even more fortunate to have kept many of those friendships too. My girlfriends and I have laughed and cried together, but mostly laughed & sometimes laughed so hard we cried! I hope you have had the same blessings. I am going to send this card as a 'just because' friendship card to the first friend I met when I moved to St. Louis over 30 years ago  Recently she has taken up stamping and card making, so we are having a blast sharing this hobby too.

This card was made these challenges. The Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C95) to make a summer themed card- flowers and bright, fun colors scream summer to me. Plus it is always so much more fun to get out with friends when the weather is nice. The other challenge was today's Splitcoaststampers' Free 4 All (F4A73) to use twine. Not quite twine, but skinny and colorful is my embroidery thread. I tried some blue twine, but it didn't match or blend to my taste.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Your comments make me so happy! Please check back again soon. I have lots of new toys! :)

PS. The studio re-organization is almost done! Pictures soon.
