Sketch 95

The weather today is ferocious. It is quite a blizzard. A perfect day to hunker down and play in the craft room. I decided to work on my card and blog for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge .

I recently acquired a large lot of scrap booking/ card making supplies from my sister. My plan was to sell most of it off for her, but what a blast I have had going through everything. I am afraid that there is more possibility  of my keeping most of it then selling it........lol . Oh, this is going to cost me, I am sure. I digress, but who would not with all this fun stuff in front of them. 

Here is this weeks sketch (always awesome from the girls at AHSC).
Here is my take on it.

 This is not my usual style, but I so wanted to use some of the awesome retired CTMH paper packs that were included in my recently  acquired stash. I made this card for a very good friend. 

Many of my friends and family were here for me during the saddest and most difficult time of my adult life. The friend I made this for however was there for me day and night, and many long hours, after every one else had returned to their every day lives. She calls me daily, and checks on me often. Makes sure I am coping not only with my loss, but with the day to day chores and all the things that need to be done. Makes sure that I am eating properly and that I am getting back at doing the things I love.
As soon as I saw the verse that was tucked away in the pkg with the lovely paper, I knew I had to use it to make a birthday card for her.  She is truly an angel and this simple card can never tell her how much her friendship means to me. I only hope that she knows how much I treasure it.
I do hope that you all have a friend like this that you can count on. Have a great week and don't forget to use up all your little bits and pieces. (especially the ones that you get from someone else. They are they most fun!)
