Last Saturday was a very special day for 2 of my dear friends, Diane and Pauline. Diane, I have mentioned in several of my blog posts (in fact, she was the subject of my very first post). We met during our first week in High School, just over 50 years ago, and have remained firm friends ever since, even if we live a long distance from each other. I made Diane's Asian themed card several weeks ago for a challenge. Diane and her late Mum love/loved anything from Japan, and many years ago had a lovely holiday there.You can see that card here.
The other friend is my great 'blogging buddy' in England, Pauline. She is on several design teams, and her beautiful cards are amazing. You would definitely enjoy a visit to her blog.
I made this card for Pauline, using one of the 3 gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamps she sent me last Christmas. Thank you again, Pauline.
I know Pauline loves pinks and purples, butterflies, flowers and bears,
as I do also, so it was great fun creating this card for her.
I coloured the cute image with Promarkers.
A closer look at the greeting, and lovely flowers.
I kept embellishments to a minimum inside my card so as to
highlight the gorgeous paper by Papermania.
