A Tribute To Sue

According to my calendar, it's Girlfriends Day.  I have been so blessed with many girl friends through the years but I have one who has stood the test of time and to this day she is and always will be my best girlfriend. We don't get to spend much time together these days but, with today's technology, we are only a text, e-mail or phone call away from each other.

I thought it would be fun to take a journey backward and dig out our high school graduation pictures.  (She is not going to like me for this!) 

Sue and Marsha

Well, here we are way back when gas was $.35 a gallon, we walked everywhere we went and Friday night was spent at the skating rink.  We had such fun together. 

This is the card I made for her.

Stamp Set: My Friend; Ink:Melon Mambo; Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla; Accessories:  Starburst Jumbo Wheel, Jewels Rhinestones, Permanent Markers, Sponge Dauber, VersaMark, Clear Emboss Powder

I used Crumb Cake for the card base and rolled it with the Starburst Jumbo Wheel inked with Melon Mambo.  The stamp was inked with VersaMark then, embossed with Clear Emboss Powder.  I took the sponge dauber and randomly covered the Very Vanilla and before the ink set, rubbed it off with a paper towel to let the embossed image come through.  A little trick I just learned from my llama sister, Buffy, is to color our Jewels Rhinestones with permanent marker.  It's just another way to add a bit of color to your finished project.

It's a simple card but it says so much.  I'm thankful and blessed to have Sue as a friend.

Blessings from Marsha
