Loving a friend...

A dear friend of mine is experiencing some of life's painful challenges these days, and is facing some complicated decisions.
I used several challenges to create this card for her:

Dream Team: sketch challenge (thanks Terrece!)
Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World: I used some colours from the trigger
Gingersnap Creations: jewel tones and gold
Crazy Amigo: high tea
Delicious Doodles: glitz and glam
Paper Play: let's get sentimental

I hope you can take a few minutes to stop by the blogs of the tremendously talented Dream Team members. You can find direct links over to the right.


I used the double glitter technique with this Dreamweaver stencil, and paired that with this beautiful new stamp from Quietfire Design. My friend is a committed tea drinker, so this card will be accompanied by a selection of teas for her.

I wish you a happy, creative day; take the time to hug someone you love.
