Sweet Friendship Sketch

Isn't friendship sweet? It is something that the Lord has given us.  People to share our lives with, to cry with, to laugh with and to glorify the Lord with.
Today I have created a card for a friend of mine one who is always encouraging me with the Word of God.  I have chosen an image by Designed 2 Delight and you can find it at the shop HERE until it's moved to the new From the Heart Stamps store.  I have coloured it up with pencil crayons and inked the edges with a soft yellow (hoping to bring a glow the middle of the image).  The papers are from Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon collection, the you & me circles are from the collection as well as the scalloped pendant.  Then I added a touch of light beige lacy ribbon to finish off this card using this wonderful sketch from Delightful Inspiration {from the heart}:  i {heart} sketches challenge.  As I got to looking at the sketch as I was posting this, I realized that I missed copying it out correctly.  Oops. So this was my first attempt and my second more accurate card is below!
I have also really taken to trying to finish the inside of my cards so I've attempted this one as well.  That's why I've chosen to put this sentiment on the inside.

For this I have chosen a sentiment that I used recently that I love and put it in with some more swatches of Teresa Collins paper.  
I would like to share this card with the wonderful ladies over at Word Art Wednesday.

Now for the more accurate sketch card! LOL

For this card, I've used another flower image from the set Thankful for Friendship ( Yes, I do love this set!) and coloured it with my pencil crayons.  I have also used more beautiful papers from the Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon set.  I have added the piece of a doily to the bottom that has been inked with the soft yellow ink like the image, then some lace ribbon, three yellow crocheted flowers (by me!) and some light blue rhinestones.  I've left off the sentiment because I'm not sure what occasion this should be for.  Have any ideas?

I would love to see what you do with this sketch!  If you've time why not give it a try!   Just pop over to Delightful Inspiration {from the heart}!
Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by to see me! Have a beautiful day!

So beautiful! Jenn, you are amazing! These are so delightful. The colours remind me of fairy floss (it's called something else up your way... you know spun sugar from fairs and carnivals) ... so light and airy...
hugs and blessings,

Thanks for your sweet comment. :) I'm wondering if, since you blog about artsy things, if you'd be willing to share about the giveaway I'm hosting for a young Christian gal from my church who's trying to launch her Etsy shop. She hand-draws the most intricate and whimsical coloring pages. No worries if this is something you'd prefer not to do, but if you do share, you'll be entered in the giveaway. Thanks and blessings...your art work is inspiring! Blessings, ~Lisa :)
