for my Special Friend
A few months ago I used this card front for an SU demo swap, leaving it plain so that I could choose the wording when I finished the card. My oldest and dearest friend has a birthday on May 18th and thought this would make a nice birthday card for her. I added the stamp Birthday Hugs & Wishes from the "Hugs & Wishes" stamp set, added a white cs base and added some SU dsp for a background. All Stampin'Up products were used as follows Colors: Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery; Punches: Scallop Corner, 2 step Bird; Embosslets: Flower Burst, Beautiful Wings; Clear Rhinestone brad; glue dots; Dazzling Diamonds Glitter; 2-way glue.
The message inside is not stamped but written personally for the recipient as I usually do. Barb and I go back to being in elementary school together, but we didn't become close friends until high school. Though we rarely see each other we have continued to keep in touch and continue a true friendship throughout the years. She is the sister I never had, my prayer partner, advice giver and support through illness and loss of parents. I hope I have been the same kind of friend to her as well.
