A heartfelt Thank-you for a dear friend

Saturday, September 3, 2016

Today I made a card for an amazing friend who has been a rock to me since the passing of my husband. Friendships are the most precious of gifts and my father was so right when he told me that true friends are like diamonds...............rare and precious. I am loving water colouring and Penny Black have so many beautiful new releases that lend themselves to this :). Today I used my distress markers to water colour this beautiful floral stamp. I can see this one being inked often.

I am entering this card into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge September Nature
and the Simon Says Anything goes challenge as well
