Many Thanks

Yesterday I started 2011 in the way I mean to go on (I'm sure it can't last!!) ... and made 2 DT cards ahead of time - they're not needed until NEXT WEEKEND - yay! Having done that I rewarded myself with a little play, and made 2 cards for a few challenges.

Here's the first card .... I had almost forgotten I had this cute Forever friends stamp but was reminded when I received a couple of very cute FF shop bought Christmas cards ... I mentioned to a colleague that you can actually get stamps to hand make a FF card and she was really interested!

Main image: Forever Friends, coloured with Copics and Promarkers;
Sentiment:Penny Black transparent set "Salutations";
Papers: My Mind's Eye;
Supplies: Prima flowers; Doodlebug sparkly brads; lace from Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House; spacers and pink velvet ribbon from my stash;
Tools: large classic ovals and scalloped ovals nestabilities; Marainne D Creatables "flower swirl" die.

I would like to enter this one for the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Be ThankfulAllsorts #84 - Thank You
Cute Card Thursday #145 - Thank You
