Sweet Friendship

The challenge at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog is to create a card featuring DISTRESSING.

I bet you were wondering how distressing and friendship go together. In my mind, if I were distressed about something, nothing would make me feel better than sitting with a dear friend at a cafe or coffee shop, pouring out my troubles and knowing that my friend would respond in just the right way.

You don't have to use a Phindy's image on your card but you get two entries if you do. If you don't have a Phindy's image, then I encourage you to pop over to her store because there are lots of great ones to buy, including some lovely new stamps.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Divas By Design - Spots and/or Stripes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Use a Digital Stamp
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl's - Spots and Dots
