Friendship Blues

Oh Brrrrrr it's such a chilly day today, a wee touch of sleety snow this morning but no sign of the proper stuff yet.  I'm busting to get making a snowman! (... yes, I was 6 years old last birthday LOL)

This card took me aaages to make, I'd bits on and bits off and still don't know if I'm happy with it or not.  I kinda wish I hadn't punched the wee red leaves.
The image is an old Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie, but I gave her a wee smiley mouth from one of the Paper Smooches snowdudes sets.  Sentiment also from Paper Smooches.
Gorgeous new DP from My Minds Eye.

Lovely card Lynne - and I think the leaves look just fine. Well done with the smile, I've tried adding features to the Gorjuss girls before but they've never been successful. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog, glad you like the card. I'm in an inky phase right now but am getting very little time to craft. It's just started snowing here so that should make it interesting in the rush hour tomorrow! Hugs, Jo x

Great card, Lynne! Love the soft minty green - a bright spot in this dreary day. Our weather actually sounds quite like yours! Hugs...

I love the sweet smile you gave her. What a darling card with great colors.
Send me some snow, please. All we have for days on end are rain and clouds. I'm going bonkers. :-)

You can pop to my garden Lynne and you will have no problem making your snowman, we had lots of the white stuff overnight.

Very pretty card and love the little touches of red.

It's lovely to see you at Stamping Sensations challenge this month, thanks so much for joining in.
