everyone needs at least one true friend...


Good morning everyone are you all doing anything exciting this weekend?...Phil's away marshaling again this weekend so I'm at a bit of a loose end but I think I will be heading out...our poor little deck garden has been devastated over the last few days by the wind and rain and is looking so sorry for itself...I have no idea what to do to bring it back to life or even how to save some of the plants...so if any of you know please leave me a comment telling me how too...btw do any of you know how this Google thingy works, I have been going to some of my favourite crafters blog only to be put onto some page that doesn't show me anything except their photo and no posts etc...any ideas?...I haven't had the best end to my week some people I love so so much hurt me without even a second thought but like most things we get over them don't we and have to go onwards and upwards (dont worry its not my lovely Phil lol)...the worst part is they didn't even think how much their actions would hurt I think and I don't know if that's better or worse...so I hope you have had a better week than me...right enough of being upset onto my card for today...I love this beautiful digi don't you, its so soft and beautiful feeling...its of course from Mo's Digital Pencil, I don't think I will ever get sick of looking at Mo's amazing images...this is the beautiful A Friend Is coloured with distress inks...I'm not sure I did justice to the dog though as I always struggle to colour animals...I found a half pad of these stunning K & Co Julianne 6x6 papers I bought ages and ages ago from Bunny Zoe's Crafts in my stash, now how on earth did I forget about this one, that's shocking isn't it...naughty Mina lol...I cut some of the flowers from the pad and used them as embellishments....oooooohhhhhhh I love a good cutting out session don't you...I finished my card with a green satin ribbon and bow and the sentiment that comes with the image printed on another of the papers from the pad...the fab sketch is one I scribbled down last week but cant remember what blog its from so if anyone knows let me know so I can give them credit but I'm entering this for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Creatalicious Challenge and the Crafting By Designs Challenge too...right I'm off to put the war paint on and smile and head out for the day...no way I'm sitting in feeling sorry for myself lol...have an amazing day everyone and whatever your up to I hope you have fun

Lovely card. Nothing better than a dog for a friend! I am not sure about the google thing. If you are clicking their name on your comment section that will take you to the page you describe. Then you would have to click on one of their blogs listed. But if that isn't it, I am at a loss.

Sorry about your plants. Maybe they will come back. Sometimes nature heals itself. I hope that happens for you.

Sorry about you being hurt. Here's a cyber hug. I know it is not the same, but ....

Gorgeous card Mina. Lovely image and like how you have cut up some of the backing paper for embellishments. I think I know what you mean about the google thingy but not sure what to do about it. It has baffled me.
Sorry to hear about your upset. Always seems harder when it is someone you love. Hope you are feeling better about things soon, as you day, onwards and upwards.
Hugs

Hi Mina, On the blog - click on the new item/subject matter, not the name of the blogger - that should do it, if I understand your question correctly.
As far as the plants are concerned, cut them back a bit - but not all the way back - just to take off the heaviest parts and with a little TLC they have a chance of growing back.
Pray for the friend that hurt you -or if you are not religious, just hope that they can be happier in their lives, so they don't go around hurting others!
My, my - I am just FULL of good advice - hope at least some of it works !! :)
Oh - and I just love your cards - and your color sensibility.
Thanks for sharing
Allison

This is a beauty of a card dearie.Love this image and the colours are fab. I agree you can't beat a good cutting session. I've renewed my love of cutting recently - so relaxing. Sorry to hear about your plants. I've been feeding mine and taking the dead heads off etc as they were battered from the heat - seem to be coming back to life.Sending you a big hug as you've been so upset.Always here for you dearie.Hugs Debbie x
