Friendship Cheer!

This week at Card Crafter's Circleour challenge for you is to create with a FRIENDSHIP theme...something to cheer up a friend! We are sponsored by HappiLeigh Scrappin and our winner will receive the selection of images that our Design Team has created with...



Ingredients: White Cardstock; Clear and Pink Stardust Glitter Pens; Pink and Green Glaze Pens; Decorating Chalks; Pink Stitch On Rhinestones...


I really loved the colour scheme of the precoloured image here.  Actually, I had such a hard time choosing which image to use.... they are all so fabulous!  Anyhow, I thought it nice to share a cuppa with a friend.  I printed the pre-coloured image twice, and fussy cut one, using only the rose-heads, and cups between.  I added green glaze pen to the leaves so they shine.  I added pink glitter pen o the roses, and smudged it gently with my finger, to think it our, and appear more like natural shading.  (yeah, I know that roses don't grow with glitter, but on my happy days they should!) I added clear glaze to the wee roses on the cups.  With the background image layer, I created a chalked background, using pinks and blues.  I edged the cut image in black, and attached it with foam tape.  I then stitched the pink rhinestones around the edge of the image layer.  I was going to add a coloured layer, but seeing image atop the white cardbase, I thought it  needed nothing more.  So fixed to the cardbase it was, and my card complete.

I know my dear Nan (12 months departed) would love this card, as our cuppas from our family fine-bone china was something special that we shared for nearly 40 years. Even if I was only drinking millk from them as a child.  I am so honoured to have those cups in my care!

I hope you will join us at Card Crafter's Circle and share your FRIENDSHIP creations with us!  Thanks for peepin'!

Pauline, you've done quite a nice job with your image. The thought and detail you added makes it quite nicely yours. Thank you for sharing your sweet story, too. Those special memories are what make our loved ones live on even after they've gone.
