If friends were flowers...

Hello lovely people,

Yes, it's me again because it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme is...

FOR A FRIEND

Our sponsor is Handmade Bliss with a fabulous £10 prize voucher, but perhaps I should also mention that there is a sale with 20% off everything at the moment ;-)  Check out the Handmade Bliss on Facebook for details.


I had a few ideas floating round in my head for this theme but when I saw this stamp I knew it was the one I wanted to use because the sentiment was just perfect for the theme.

This is dedicated to all my lovely friends out there in blogland; you are all wonderful and your sweet comments and words of encouragement fill me with delight when I read them so thank you all :-)

Girly card using Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Pippa loves to plant

I actually only used part of the image for this card; the full image has more plants on the left but I didn't want the image that big for this design.

I'm afraid I may have been a little predictable with the embellies but twine and flowers look soooo good with a few die cut swirls!
