Special Friend

Made this for a Special Friend who has been through the mill this year with health problems,
the challenge over at Magnolia gave me some of the inspiration as did the following Challenges;

1. Just Magnolia Challenge: The theme is Someone Special and you need to incorporate at least one Magnolia stamp in your project. If you are looking for inspiration then the DT examples are just adorable.
2. Cute Daisy May Challenge: The theme this week is Twinkle Twinkle, it can be anything that sparkles, glitters, or stars even.
3. Creative Card Crew Challenge: The chosen theme this week is Gold or Silver. I love gold at this time of the year.
4. Cute Card Thursday Challenge: This week the theme is Swirly Girls. A very girly project, i.e. bling ribbon gems swirls etc.
5. Pile it on Challenge: This week the theme chosen is Tinsel Town, so lots of glitter and glitz.
6. One Stop Craft Challenge: This week it's Fancy Folds. I've chosen to do an easel card, I just love this type of card, it's my second one and I'm looking forward to making more.

It was really difficult to get a good picture, the glitter wouldn't stop glittering but I know my friend will love it, she is a very glittery person.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me, I really appreciate reading your encouraging comments. Do come back and visit soon.
