Friends are very important in our lives. It wasn't until I lost one this week that I realized how important. No, no one died, but a friendship died - for a very trivial reason (I think anyway- but the other person didn't seem to think so). This was a long standing friendship - 45 years - but this person decided I wasn't a good enough friend to her to her to maintain our relationship any longer. I feel very sad and heartbroken, but I must admit to hanging the phone up in her ear to stop the ranting and raving. A sad situation, and I can't see resuming her friendship. One has to be very careful what words one speaks, because once spoken they cannot be forgotten.
This card is a friendship card - for all the friends I still do have - and I appreciate all of them.
To my friends:
The left hand side of the cardstock was embossed with the hearts from the Adorning Accents Folder.
For the sentiment, I stamped the decorative label image in Real Red on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched it out. I stamped a second one without reinking as I wanted to oval inner part, but the unstamped side. It was cut out by hand and the word " friend" was stamped in the middle. It was attached to the punched decorative label with dimensionals, and attached to the card where a gumball green banner had been placed across the card. Some rhinestones were placed under the sentiment, because friends are like diamonds.
