Friends xx

Over the last 24 hours I have had the pleasure of catching up with friends- last night I had a lovely surprise phone call from a friend across the Irish sea, It was great to catch up, and hear that she is settling into her new home so well xx, Today I assistted 'a school' mum friend in shopping for a new kitchen- the choice of door knobs is unbelievable!!, finishing for a girly chat and lunch xx And also my thoughts are with a very good friend, as she copes with the hassels of work, she deserves her well earned breakxxx

It has been great to know I have such good friends, and so when my Heather put in a request for a card late last night, I can understand the heartfelt love, friends can bring....one of her classmates, is moving schools and she requested a card, they could all sign, and then they wouldn't be forgotten.....weepy mummy moment xx

So here it is, using the lovely

'I [heart] hearts' stamp set from SU.

I made a little montage of hearts cut with the co-ordinating SU punches,to decorate the front of the card.

The colour scheme is 'Tempting Turquoise',

'Melon Mambo' & 'Pumpkin Pie'

The back panel, that held the ribbon tie in place, was decorated with random stamping of the hearts from the set, in the choosen colour way.

The fold out leaves were made by simply cutting three strips of 10cm x 30cn white card, scoring at 10cm intervals and then sticking together.

These were also stamped along the corners and the edges, to add decoration, with the 'I [Heart] Hearts' stamp set.
Heather was really pleased when she saw it this morning, and I was lucky enough to be in school and see, that many friends had wrote messages.

So cheers to friends and friendships, may we all be blessed with good ones xx
