Thank you for being a friend

Hi there Bloglanders

I hope you are having a sunny yellow Monday!  My house is still very quiet but I'm keeping busy.

My friend Anel puts pictures of her best friends and family in her Bible.  She doesn't scrap but I'm sure her page will win a few accolades for the biggest amount of pictures in the smallest space.  So, when she saw my family photo on the blog, she wanted one ASAP and as her husband is having an operation in Stellenbosch this week, I thought I'd visit and cheer her up. This is what the card looks like:

I used this color combo from The Color Throwdown as inspiration:

And a peek inside the "envelope":

I used a 12 x 8 piece of cardstock, sewed a medium glassine bag to the middle of the "inside" of my card and folded the fronts over to form an "envelope".(The seam is just above the zig zags)  I decorated the front of my envelope with die cut flowers from Hero Arts as well as the inside. My sentiment is from October Afternoon (sidewalks) and the twine from The Twinery. I just slipped the photo into the Glassine bag.

That's it!  I'm off to visit my friend at the hospital.  Enjoy the rest of your day and please come back to play as I'll be sharing more of my crafting fun right here on Play as U Go.
