Friends

I have a special group of friends which we were named the Ya Ya's by a fellow member who passed away from breast cancer.  I wanted to send these friends a card to let them know how much I value their friendship, support and love.

I decided to use the current sketch from The Paper Players.


I am also entering it into the weekly challenge on Tuesday Throwdown where the challenge is "Anything Goes".



I picked up a 6 x 6 pad (I have quite a few) and found 3 coordinating papers for the strips.  The teal circle is actually cut from a packet of cards I had bought.  The color was perfect.  The packet probably cost me $1 and I still have some more left if I want to use them.  The sentiment is from Penny Black.  It is a new sentiment set I just bought last week.

I know my friends will like receiving some special mail.  Sometimes you don't tell your friends often enough how much they mean to you.
