True Friendship........

Afternoon folks and happy Friday...... how can the weekend nearly be upon us again?!!

I would like to say a huge thank you for the response to my torn rose tutorial and I really hope lots of people will give it a try now ;o)

Following on from yesterday's post I decided to put the dark grey roses to good use and this card is the result! I've made it for my ex-boss who is also a close friend and I felt she might appreciate something a little bit traditional.

I created one of my paper layers by stamping on various Tim Holtz images and a sentiment too, so I hope this allows me to enter my creation into this week's Paperplay Challenge. The outer paper is Kay&Co and the leaves are Marianne and Martha Stewart. This card is soooooooo simple by my usual standards and I was itching to add more, but everyone at home was telling me it was fine so I did as I was told, lol!

I'm entering the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - CAS

Cupcake Craft - Sew Mad

Charisma - Distressing

Flutterby Wednesdays - Open

ASFOS - Happy Birthday

Craft Your Days Away - Birthday Celebrations

One Stop - Sentimental

Corrosive - Earth Tones

Tuesday Throwdown - Birthday

Thank you so much for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
