This month the hostess is me, Anne-Elise, and we've been challenged to Remember our Friends! Where would we be without our friends? We laugh together and share our dreams, and when things are hard, we want to be there for them or be a shoulder to cry on when they grieve. Today we remember those friends with Sympathy, Missing You, Thinking of You or even Wishing You Were Here cards and perhaps we'll even have a special story to tell you about those friends that have inspired us along the way.
If you've jetted in from Betty's blog, then you have arrived at the right destination! If you haven't, perhaps you'd like to start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss all the beautiful inspiration along the way!
I'm so happy that this month we have been challenged to remember our dear Friends! You know that I have two nationalities and so I have a lot of friends in Finland and in Switzerland. I have also traveled in Europe, in the United States and Canada and so this month, I wanted to make a card to all my dear friends living abroad, because unfortunately I haven't the possibility to see them very often... and I really miss them. I chose this gorgeous sentiment, because it just says what I like... laughing and sharing pleasures! I wish I could travel around the world and meet all of you, my Friends... Miss you so much! The last photo is for all of you... a little sight of our beautiful lake... welcome to Finland!
This card was made with the beautiful Flourishes sentiment called Sweetness of Friendship. I also added some flowers from the Summer Blossoms stamp set. One flower was stamped on vellum and embossed with white powder. The vellum butterfly is from the Fanciful Flourishes stamp set and the sentiment on the tag is from Mix-N-Mugs. The tag was made with one of the Spellbinders Tailor-made Classic Tags Die Set. The white background was made with the retired Damask stamp and I embossed it with clear powder, love this shiny effect! Just added some ribbons, lace, twine, stitching and some pearls!
Thanks for taking time to visit me here in Finland, it's time to grab your passports and board Flourishes Flight BWT, your next destination is:
