Friends

Hello! Merry Christmas Eve Eve to you all! I just wanted to pop in to post a card that I made today and to wish you all Happy Holidays!

Like most everyone else, I've been busy getting ready for Christmas.. it's also been a time of reflection for me. In 2010, along with the good, there has been some bad. I lost 2 friends at the beginning of the year, and another just a few weeks ago. It's made me especially thankful for my friends, family and health. With being busy preparing for the holidays and having other things going on, I have not only had a lot of crafting time, but I also haven't been much in the crafting mood.. I am slowly getting back in the mood, though.. :)


I was inspired to make this friend card using this lovely sentiment from JB-09220 Friendship Nested Sentiments & Verse. I paired it with some paper from Parisian Anthology (Pink Paislee) and some Maya Road lace. My sentiment and corner embellishments were cut out using JB-08955 Nested Sentiments Dies, one of two newly released Spellbinders custom die set designed to perfectly fit all JustRite Nested Sentiments & Verse stamps!

I want to thank you all for stopping by and wish you the happiest of holiday seasons and many blessings in the new year!
