July Dueling Time....

Hello Friends, Welcome!

Our July hostess for our duel was Terry, and she sent us an awesome card kit! Thank you, Terry!

Our theme is 'Garden of Friendship', and our challenge is to give a story or memory of a good friend.

My circle of friends is pretty limited. One memory that I have is from high school, and I guess that has been on my mind due to our class reunion that is coming up. One friend that comes to mind is Judy, she was my BFF all through junior high and high school. We would do everything together, we even worked at the same cafe in our little town. I haven't seen her in years and hopefully this summer I will run into her. (My mom still lives in the town I grew up in.)

Now for my card:

Inside the card

The whole kit was so cute that I had a very hard time choosing what to use.

Items used in the kit.
Image and sentiment: Fred Bear "Oopsie Daisies" - My Favorite Things
DP: Flower Words, DCWV
Felt Flowers: Favorite Findings
Buttons: assorted
Doily Martha Stewart Crafts. (which actually was white, but I sponged ink over mine to make it pink)

Thank you for peeking at my blog today!
