City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #71 ~ Best of Friends

Happy Tuesday everyone, and you know Tuesday means a new challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog.
This week, Ros has a lovely theme and inspiration collage for us

Best of Friends

isn't that lovely? all you need is to have the word "friend" or "friends" or "friendship" on your project, sounds fun?

Here's my "Hello Friend


Before I make this card, I have the sketch and what I want to do in mind, because it was late, I thought I'll wait till morning, but the next day, I just have tons of things to do and couldn't find a bit of time to put my "thoughts" into action


when I finally find some time yesterday, I jot down the sketch and what I want to do and go right to my craft room.... I pick out the paper, and the ribbon, and as I go, I changed my mind 23 times and I ended up with this card, one that totally different from what I had in mind, and this happens to me so many times when I create, does it sound familiar to you or is it just me?


however, I do like the vintage images on this card... 


now hop over to City Crafter and see what the other DT created for you, we have my lovely blog friend Linda B as guest, you don't want to miss her beautiful project, come on,  join in the fun?

LOL I'm not sure if it's part of being a crafter or a woman that has us doing all that second guessing and mind changing. :-) Whatever it is, it caused you to create a wonderful card. I love the vintage images and that fun bright DP. Great card Kirsty!
