Flower Power at Try it on Tuesday

My awesome Pal Janet has had a strand running on her Facebook Wall about what makes a good friend today, something we've both been talking about lately.  We have met so many lovely friends through crafting, and on Saturday went to Art From the Heart to meet a new one, Craftymomma aka Lesley. We had the most fabulous day and were lucky enough to see more special friends who were there doing one of Di's amazing workshops

Even before Janet started her thread (ah thats what I should have said not strand!  I knew it was cotton related! lol) I made this for her as a thankyou for listening to me moan and complain over the last few weeks.  If any of you are fortunate enough to meet Janet on your travels make friends with her immediately, and if you are already a friend, treasure her, she's pure gold!!!  Here's the card then


I think the card will have to be shared though, with all the wonderful friends I have met through blogging. Your comments brighten my day and they really do pick me up when I am down!

If you are on facebook have a look on Janet's Wall or maybe leave a comment here

What do you think makes a good friend??

Ooooops nearly forgot! ......... and if you fancy having a go at the flower power challenge, maybe you could make a card to let a friend know how much they mean to you.

Wishing you all special moments in time with special people
x Michelle

This is such a beautiful card! I thought I recognized the flower, but have decided that maybe I don't. Is it one of your own designs? Wonderful.

A fabulous card, great stamp and beautifully coloured.

I think a good friend is someone who has a good ear and patience !

Have a great week.

Hi Michelle (and Janet), I had a really lovely time on Saturday too. It was so good to meet you after being blog buddies for so long and meeting Janet too was an added bonus. As for your friendship I think you both thoroughly deserve each other because you are both such nice ladies. I think the card you have made for Janet is beautiful. I love all that white space and the flower is a really good image. The sentiment is perfect.

I think a good friend is someone who you might not be able to see for weeks or even months but is there in a flash if you say I need you.

Hugs
Lesley Xx

A lovely card for a lovely lady from another lovely lady. You are both wonderful people, Michelle and I feel blessed and priviledged to know you both.
Sorry to hear it's ben tough lately.
A good friend to me is someone who you may not speak to or see for a while but when you do, it feels like you saw each other yesterday.
Take care my friend.
Love and Hugs Lisax
