True Friends Can be Unexpected Friends

First I want to say a big welcome to my new followers. You really made my day and I hope that following my posts will be rewarding for you!

Now, who would expect that these 2 would be friends, much less such good friends. This image reminds me of how blessed I am to have such good friends now and to have had such friends in the past. Today I can say that my husband is my very best friend, a blessing and joy I have had for 25 years.

This fun image is from Wink Wink Ink and is called "Falling Apart".  As with all WWI images, it comes with a pre-colored version as well as black and white for coloring. For this card I chose to color the image. I did, however, use the colored version as a guide to colors, one of the great reasons to get them both!

 I did not have a charm that said "friends" so made one using a tiny frame charm I had. Wish my writing was better, lol. I really think it pulls the sentiment together with the intended thought.

I left the top half of the inside blank and only decorated the bottom since it is an easel card. I so much wanted to use the sentiment with this image, but was torn as to what kind of card to make.

Going through current challenges, I found one for an easel cards! Problem solved. :o)
