A couple of blogs that had an extended time period shut down at the end of the year. I was looking for at least one more to give me some play time flexibility.  From Greta's blog I found Words 2 Craft by.  I kinda liked the idea of a written inspiration.  So here is my first entry of what I hope will be many. 

Grab Our Blinky!Our words for this month come from American author and humorist Mark Twain.

I can promise all my heart's devotion; 

A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;

A love that's true and ever growing;

A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.

While many may only see romantic love here, I see the love of friendship.   I value and love my girlfriends. I love and adore my hubby, but sometimes a girl just needs girl time.

My friends are treasures.

Supplies include Distress ink -Tumbled Glass, Waves Stencil by SSS, Hero Arts Live Life stamp set, PPP bubbles, and Zig Clean Color Markers. Treasure Chest is hand drawn.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Amen, my friend! Great quote; I don't think I'd heard it before. And love your resulting card!

Oh so clever, Cat--love the wave stencil tying in with the treasure chest & the sequin bubbles! So happy you've decided to join us at W2CB!

Greta said...

& I also treasure my girlfriends--like you!

This is so pretty and a fabulous interpretation of our February Words 2 Craft By quote! You are so right that there's nothing like a good girlfriend. And, I love how you used that wave stencil on the base and the card's panel.

So glad you found us at W2CB and hope to see more of your craftiness. :)

Your hand-drawn chest is amazing, Cat! I love that you chose friendship for your theme, and your coloring is just beautiful! A lovely friendship card, for sure!
