For a dear friend...


My friend has just received devastating news about a family illness. This card is for her. It incorporates several challenges: Theme Thursday is "borders;" One Powerful Hour is "ocean;" Wednesday Stamper is "kiss;" Crafty Creations is "hearts galore;" Papertake Weekly is "hearts and flowers." My border is the Inkadinkado shells stamp, lightly coloured with Copic markers, and Ms. Martha's punched hearts; the image of the little girlfriends kissing is from Nancy Dooren (THANK YOU for this Nancy!), which I superimposed over one of my own photos of White Point Beach in Nova Scotia, where my friend and I spent time together.

Thank you for these challenges. They helped me create a card for my friend during such a difficult time for her.
