That's What Friends Are For

Hi everyone, well here I am turning up again just like a bad penny (the younger ones amongst you will need to ask your mother what a penny is!)

Today's card was made for a very dear friend of mine. She is hugely talented, makes the most stunning cards and is a fellow 'Sheenie'. Despite not having a blog of her own, she makes regular visits to mine and always leaves me such encouraging comments, so I just wanted her to know how grateful I am and how much her friendship means to me. She has told me how much she likes the cuties in vintage colours and as this is also a Penny Black 'vintage' style image, I hope she'll like this one.

I'm entering this card into this week's Penny Black challenge which is 'Song Title/Lyrics' and as you'll have guessed from the title of this post I'm using the fabulous diva song of 'That's what friends are for'. I've used Saturday Challenge sketch #75 for this card but unfortunately I'm not in time to enter the challenge (again this is becoming a habit lol!!)

Card Details:
* Image - Penny Black 'Friendly Tea Time'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania 'Simply Elegant'
* Punches - Martha Stewart 'Doily Lace' and EK Success 'Photo Corners'
* Sentiment - PC generated
* Everything else from my stash.

This friend isn't the only one who takes the time to visit and leave me wonderful comments, so thank you to all of you who contine to do this, you warm my heart!
