A True Friend

Happy Thanksgiving my US friends! 

Just nothing better than a true friend is there?  I've been blessed this past year to be in a Bible Study/Small Group with some amazing women that have really made a difference in my life.  They spur me on, encourage me, tell me truth - even when I don't like it at first (but always appreciate it later), and just live their lives out in front of me, and beside me with an authentic faith relationship with Jesus.  They are so precious to me.  And I am very thankful for them.  So, here's a friendship card I'll give to at least one of them! :) 



This beautiful PaperTrey set has such interesting and unique blossoms, they are so fun to color!  I used a combination of pinks and yellows and oranges to achieve the variation of colors with my Prismacolor pencils.  A friend in the SU club I go to used this Razzleberry color pairing with this DP and I thought it was gorgeous, and knew it would work with this card.  I overstamped the blossoms on the Razzleberry designer paper too, just to unify it a little more. 

Here's a picture of the dimension on the card, the smaller bloom closest to the camera is "double" popped up, with 2 layers of dimensionals. 



Well, that's it for today!  I've got some cooking to do!

Recipe:  Stamps:  PaperTrey Ink - In Bloom;  Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Razzleberry;  Paper;  Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron, Regal Rose, SU Raspberry Lemonade DSP, Flourishes Classic Ivory;  Accessories:  Prismacolor Pencils, Blending Stump, Big Shot, Labels 8 Nestabilities, Rich Razzleberry Grosgrain, Gold Brads, Dimensionals

Nothing is better than a true friend who can tell you what you "need" to hear and not just what you "want" to hear and who can push you closer to becoming the person Jesus created you to be -- blessed you are :D Have a fabulous Thanksgiving with your family and friends :D

I agree with Marisa's comment, a true friend speaks from the heart and gives advice (even when it's not what you're asking for . . . LOL). What would we do without the angels He sends our way? You're one of my angels Christine, you're a blessing to us all! Big Hugs!!!!
