Forever Friends

This card is for the most special woman in my life - Rhonda - my SIL and my best friend. She’s my SIL but to me she is my sister. Today she is going into the hospital for either a routine surgery or something much worse… we won’t know until the doctors know… So what do I do when I am sad and worried… I make a special card…

Forever Friends:

This card holds a lot of symbolism for both of us. I won’t go into all the mushy symbolism details but here are some card details: The “sister…friend” paper was created using my Dymo label maker… just cut your paper to 3/8 inch and it will go right through for you. I distressed the strip of paper and put Choc Chip ink on my finger to rub on the words to make them stand out. If you have white core CS you can sand the letters. The face image was stamped on Kraft CS and portions were lightly chalked. The beads in the center of the Prima flowers were hand sewn on.
Sewing, distressing, beads - large and small and some Aged Copper hardware finish this card.

If you have a chance today think healthy thoughts for Rhonda!

Thanks for visiting!
