Lets Celebrate Friendships....with a new challenge at the Red Rubber Inspirationals blog

This week it is my turn to host the challenge at the Red Rubber Inspirationals blog and the theme is Celebrate Friendships.  I wanted to take the time to remember those that are special to us that add so much to our daily lives....those close friendships that we have.  So for your project you can use an image that may remind you of a friend, color an image to look like a friend, or just use a friendship sentiment on your card for a friend.

Here is my project for this challenge:

For my card I used the Joyful notes sentiment set and the Butterflies are free stamp sets.  I first stamped the main image onto white cardstock using Memento black ink.  I love this image by Phyllis Harris and it totally made me think of one of my good friends and her joy for life.  I then colored it in with my Copic markers.  I colored her to look like one of my best friends.  I then stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and colored it with a pattern similar to the bottom of the other image.  I then used a brown marker to edge both pieces.  I then created the pattern on the card base with scraps of pattern paper from my favorite Cosmo Cricket line Early Bird.

I hope you'll take out your stamps and create something this week for my challenge...and be sure to link it up on the Red Rubber Inspirationals blog before Wednesday, May 14 at 11:59 CST.

Happy crafting....Lynda

I really really like this card. You can just feel the joy and light heartedness of the image with the way you colored it.
