When I hear the word "friends" I think of Bette Midler and her singing..."you gotta have friends." I have been lucky enough in my life to be blessed with some of the best friends a girl could ever want. From my oldest and dearest friend ever, Olivia - she and I met in 7th grade and are still friends today to my newest friend Lee, whom I met online on the TSG forum.

This week's challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #125 is to make a card and it must contain the word friend. I colored up my image at the beginning of last week and now I am down to the wire to get it in for this week. I don't know where the week went, but it sure flew by. I love this Cherry Blossoms set from Flourishes and although I have had the set for nearly two years I just recently inked it up. I'm not so afraid to color my Flourishes stamps anymore.

I also decided to use Mojo Monday's 199 sketch this week to give this beauty life. I have only played with Mojo Monday about 3-4 times because I have also been so intimidated to play with those amazing designers. I have gained a great deal of confidence and I am so looking forward to playing in different challenges.

I just love how this came out. I hope you do to. Thanks for stopping by.



Stamps: Flourishes (Cherry Blossoms); There She Goes (Everyday Greetings)
Ink: Memento Black Tuxedo; PrismaColors Colored Pencils
Paper: Bazzill Basics (cream puff); SU (very vanilla); The Girls' Paperie (Jubilee); Me&My Big Ideas (baby girl); Close to My Heart (black & vanilla)
