Friends are Great Gifts

That really is true isn't it!  Friends are truly a great gift that we should cherish.  I really liked this sentiment that can be found in the "Gifty Gwen" set from Some Odd Girl.  I used Gwen on my card, she has such a sweet face.

Paper: notecard (Paper Studio); Neenah; patterned paper (Echo Park); cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Copics; Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Some Odd Girl
Other: CB Embossing folder; Stampin' Up Scalloped Edge punch; Glossy Accents; Flower (very old stash); tag (a gift from Michelle)

I actually used one of the sketches from this month's Hero Arts contest to nudge me along in making this card, and it helped (so thank you HA!).

Isn't she just too sweet!  I added some glossy accents here and there for some shine and texture as this will most likely be a card that my daughter could use if she wanted to for one of her friends.

I had a great start to my day, Lisa and I went to the gym and worked out, it felt awesome!  And the weather here in Houston continues to be perfect!

Wishing you all an awesome day.  I also want to say thank you to the new visitors to my blog who are leaving me such sweet comments, it's really nice of you to take the time to pop in!

Gwen is just gorgeous. Your card is superb. The PP and the embossing enhance the image. Beautifully coloured as well.
