Friends with Flair

Happy May Day!

I'm popping in this afternoon with a quick post - trying to get into the

Here's what I made:


My friend Carol and I have been dear friends since we first met in 5th grade.
We're both now into our sixties, so THAT's how long we've been buds.
In the past few years, she's lost both a daughter, and recently her husband.
(We were married exactly one week apart, in 1973)
Anyway, I love her dearly, and this card is going to her!
I don't think she reads my blog, so I should be safe...

I used a Unity grab bag - GB5 sentiment for this card.
Hope you like it!

Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms papers were used. The sentiment was
stamped on one of the frilly rectangles. I took the second rectangle, and fussy cut
all of the blooms, popped them up with dimensional foam, and a card was born.

Have a great evening, and weekend!

Thanks for dropping by,

Patti J.
