Friendship…

…must be nurtured and the first thing I thought of when I saw the 365 Cards Braiding challenge was the Friendship bracelets we used to do when I was young…ehhrm…er. And that instantly made me think of the cutest sentiment ever which I’ve been cuddling for a while, saving for something special. The card was done. Almost. Needed to remember how one did those bracelets first… I did a quick search and found loads of tutorials and inspiration. I ended up using THIS side. It got back to me quickly, even though I need to practice to get it straighter. I choose colors to go with my new FANTASTIC Origins papers.

Januari 2 Aren’t the papers totally awesome??? I used the Mojo Monday sketch #120. LOVE this sketch! And I really like how the card turned out, but with some favorite papers and favorite stamps – all are from the Yoo HOOO! set from Firecracker Designs - it had to be something I could like. LOL!

Happy Weekend all!

Tesa, I am speechless! Wonderful you remembered those bracelets from 'back in the day', that is what came to mind when I read the challenge too! I love that border (is that ribbon? did you make it?). Gorgeous!

Naaaaaw .... allra sötaste lilla ugglan! Jag minns också de där armbanden men skulla INTE klara av att pillra med ett sånt! Inget tålamod alls. Kortet är supersnyggt, papprena är bedååårande! Ha en skön helg!
