For a Special Friend

Oh my goodness! I can't believe it is Wednesday already. I have to say here in FL we are having a gorgeous week of 80 degree weather. It feels like spring with all the trees budding and birds singing. Now on to my creation. Welcome and I hope you will join us over at Midweek Magnolias

Today I would like to share a tussie mussie I made for an amazing friend. Kelly is very special, she is supportive, kind and a great crafting partner. When I really needed a friend she was there for me. Although we have only communicated virtually I feel like I have known her for years.  Oh and I forgot to say we love to shop together virtually. She is like another sister to me.. I treasure our friendship....Huge Hugs!

Kelly, this tussle mussie is for you! I hope one day we can meet each other in person.

I used the following to created my project:
Magnolia Stamps - Bunny Tilda and Christmas Lace Heart (Tilda was colored with Copic Markers
The paper is from Pion
Lace, Trim, Tulle, Ribbon, Bling, Stems 
Chipboard and resin embellishments

I am entering my project in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - March Spring Colours
Marvelous Magnolia - #88 BOWnanza
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Mema's Crafts - March Anything Goes

  5. You are treasured friend for me, so thoughtful and patient. You always make me laugh, even though sometimes it has been harder for you. lol We have one of those friendships that come natural and filled with un conditional love and respect for each other. I always thank God we met and communicated and also we need to thank Tab for getting the communication between us going! hehe This will be the first piece of artwork for my future craft room and I will always think of the love you put into this for me.
