friendship ~crafting friends

today i am showing a birthday card i made for a very "old" crafting friend ~when i say old i mean we have been friends for over 40 years!! we meet on our first day at school and have kept in touch ever since!!

for this card i used the wonderful sketch over on SUNDAY SKETCH AND STAMP (link on side bar) ~i have turned the sketch onto it`s side.
i used dovecraft paper, my new ladybug and friends stamp, docrafts word stamp, flowers and ribbon from my stash.
was good to get the water colour paints out again!!

..while i had my paints out i painted this new stamped image from lili of the valley, which i have made another birthday card for another crafting friend!!!
..think you may see these stamps being used again very soon!!
hope you have a good day!!
