Friendship Blog Hop--February 19 - 21

Hope you are having a CRAFTASTIC weekend!



Welcome to my Blog, and the Friendship Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Cherie (Crafting In The Pines), you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can go to the beginning at http://www.craftycardgallery.blogspot.com/.  See below for blog list.

This blog hop is all about friendship. Sometimes it's nice to just send a card to a friend for no particular reason or to celebrate something with them. There will be opportunities to win some blog candy and get lots of inspiration from great talented ladies! So sit back, and enjoy the hop!

For my project I decided make an inspirational card. True friends are far and few in this world so when they are going through difficult times it’s always great to give them a boost and remind them of their strength.

Hope you like…would love your feedback.
