I have not fallen in a black hole, nor have I forsaken my crafts. I have just been busy, but, don't ask me what I have gotten done. :o) I have spent time speaking with a number of friends. Some of whom are having personal issues, some who are helping me with my business, some just for fun and even one who called me out of the blue after no contact for 3 years. Friends are important connections to past experiences, the present and our future. Friends help us laugh, cry and cope with everyday life. As I have gotten older, I realize how important it is to hold on to all of our friends.

I made this card for Friday's Splitcoast Limited Supply Challenge. The challenge was to use no pattern paper, have only 4 layers and use a bug someplace in the card. What fun...

CTMH – Colonial White, Moonstruck, Hollyhock and Lilac Mist
CTMH – Friendship Garden
Ink – Stamp Pads
CTMH – Hollyhock
Cricut, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Nesties, Stickes, Rickrack

Take time to keep up with your crafts and remember to share them with all of your friends. For Now, Happy Crafting!

Very cute card. I was planning on doing this challenge but time got away from me so I totally understand what you are saying. I like the use of the rick rack - it goes well with the bugs you used.

Friends are a great comfort & I'm glad that you are re-connecting! Great job on the card-I get stumped on some of those challenges!

I so agree with ya! Life without friends is dull. Thanks for the reminder as we tend to forget with our busy lives. Your card is beautiful! I love the colors you used. They look great together.
