You're My Best Friend

Hello again,

I can't believe it's Friday again already and that's without being at work at the moment!  I'm looking forward to meeting up with some of my work mates over lunch today to catch up with the office gossip lol!  Then later, I'm looking forward to a girly evening with my daughter as Rab is off to a gig in Edinburgh tonight.

Today's card is one I made for my daughter to give her BFF for her birthday.  The stamp is by S.W.A.L.K. from Crafters Companion.  As soon as Iona saw it in the Hobbycraft sale (months ago) she begged me to buy it for her friend's birthday card, bless.

I've coloured in the image with Promarkers then fussy cut the characters as she didn't want the text on it.  This is a first outing for my new LOTV Snow Princess paper pad, it's a Christmas pad but I've chosen some non festive papers for my card.  Iona wanted me to use these papers as purple is the BFF's favourite colour!  The sentiment is also by LOTV and I've added a die cut ivy corner by Marianne, die cut leaves made from a Stampin' Up Sizzlits die and some little punched flowers.  I've finished off my card with two kinds of ribbon and a mix of pearls by Scrapberry and Hobby House.

Hope you all have a super weekend whatever you are up to.

Shona xx
