Friendship is so good!

I could not do it! I could not make it through this life without my friends! My husband and I have friends all over the country and friends all over the world. No, really we do. And we all have those friends whom we love and see and share our joys and our disasters with all the time. I happen to have a few friends without whom I really wouldn't have any good days. Do you have those friends? If I can't see them in person for any length of time, I find myself longing to be with them! Almost as if some part of my very being is missing. The card you see above is an embodiment of my feelings towards those special individuals God has blessed me with in this life. My closest friends are the fond memories in my life...teardrops of time treasured in my heart. This image set is the one of Clear Acrylic Stamps collector's sets, In a Peaceful Glade. Isn't that bunny just wonderful?? These stamps are just so beautiful to work with...because the images are so sharp the first time, I've never had to stamp one more than once!! And coloring with my pencils and OMS, along with my SU Cameo coral marker was therapeutic after a 13 hour work day! And that whole time I colored the image, I thought about my close friends...and I smiled.

Here's another card using some of the single stamps designed and sold by Clear Artistic stamps...This is a thank you card (obviously! LOL!) using the bunny and flower...I wanted some springtime in my tired of winter!! The prima flowers and bric-a-brac are so perfect together, don't you think?? The calligraphy is mine :)

Here is a close up of the bunny and potted plant. I kind of cheated...I learned a long time ago that to avoid cutting a lot of tiny details on an image, I only had to cut the easy part and incorporate the rest of it into my design. Much easier and I like "easier"....A LOT!

Well, friends, I have been making a lot of cards lately...I'll probably post a bunch of them this week! I used Belinda's stamps here as part of a challenge on our Clear Artistic stamp forum. I have an SBS9 sketch card to post too....maybe tomorrow!! Don't you just get chills of anticipation of things to come.....okay, well, maybe the chills are due to the fact that the door just blew open!! In any case I hope you'll look forward and let all your friends know you love and need them!
And please pray for those folks affected by those tornados this week. My heart is aching for them. Pray what the Lord would have you do to help! God bless you all!!
