Friendship...

It has been a busy couple of days here in the Kovack household. A good busy....the kind that makes me grateful for my sweet family. Sunday was just a great "family" day filled with church, a Sunday dinner, and spending time together. Last night the kids had CCD, homework, and baths. It is the routine of our lives and one I often take for granted. When I take a step back, I am filled with overwhelming love and appreciation. I know these days are fleeting, the kids will be grown, and the wrinkles and gray hairs will arrive! (Ok, maybe they have already started.....a little!) Maybe it is the Lenten season that gets me a bit nostalgic these days.......

But as always......I digress......
On to the card shall we? This card was created using Crafty Secret's Garden Girls set. I colored her in with Prisma Colored Pencils and Gamsol. I added a teeny pearl to her dress. The paper is by SU! and Jenni Bowlin. I had this little metal branch thingy forever and decided to use it on this card!

The circles were cut using my Nesties and then I machine stitched around them.


I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday! (Looking at the bright side......at least it isn't Monday!) LOL!
