Inventory challenge time!

Happy Anniversary Inventory Challenge!!!!  The card/project we create this week is to embody what the I.C. means to us...well, without getting too sappy, to me I.C. means friendship.  These wonderful ladies make me laugh (I'm looking especially hard at you Ms. Sandy!), they give me strength and encouragement and, perhaps most importantly, they tell me my kids are cute!  LOL!  Seriously though, these ladies are absolutely a treasure in my life and I am so glad we are all friends!

So, in honor of this week's I.C., I made what I think is one of my best cards ever!  It's simple yet elegant, pretty but not too fussy, and it symbolizes the beauty of friendship.

Please stop by and check out the marvelous creations of:

Danielle
Christina
Sandy

Oh this is so adorable Rene! I love how you've put the butterflies around her!

Danielle said...

OH! Sweetie, all your card are lovely, but this one certainly has something very special. You selected a perfect Tilda to express friendship, like she holds the butterfly in her hand, freely, lovingly, and with such care and attention. All required qualities in friendship. Your coloring is beautiful, your layout with lovely lace, and pretty distressing is wonderful. I love all the little butterflies, and the very beautiful flowers.
Thank you for being there every Friday, and always come up with original and cute ideas, and projects. Much hugs to you Dear Rene, and to your fantastic girls.
