Friends and friendship

Where would we be without our bestest, bestest friends?
They are there with us through our good times, and... (this is what makes them our best) They are there through the worst times aswell ... listening, sharing, comiserating, holding up the truth for us and taking it on their shoulders, sharing the load a little.
And they are still there, when you come out the other side!
Just waiting to celebrate the next adventure.
This is only the second swing card I have ever made. I modified the original dimensions to make it a square-ish card that then I realised I needed to make a handmade envelope to fit it. I love how when you open thise card the image swings around to show the sentiment... Thank you for your friendship. Then you can flip it over again and see the stamping on the back... not as exciting as the front, but shows you how its made. The little bird is coloured with markers direct to rubber, using the so saffron marker and the sahara sand marker (does it look a little bit like a noisy miner?), ... and the branch is in chocolate chip and the leaves in Old Olive. I huffed on the stamp to moisten it up before stamping. The Best is yet to be stamp is also multi-coloured with markers ... as are the flowers and damask image stamps aswell.I am an optimist always: the best is yet to be ... no matter where you are right now...Enjoy!
