Friends of Unity September Blog Hop ~ Friendship

Hello, friends! Welcome to our Friends of Unity September Blog Hop!

This months cue is about Friendship. 

Friendship is described as a mutual affection between people. 

Many of us know a lot of people, but often have a very small circle of close friends. I've read that there are  those we consider good friends, close friends and true friends. I have all and consider myself so incredibly blessed. Like many of you, I have formed many wonderful friendships through the crafting community that fill a void of friendship I didn't know I needed. For that, I say thank you.

   This first card is for my best friend of 38 years. We now live states apart, but our friendship has remained close over the years. I miss her terribly. 

This beautiful and bold flower cluster is from the Friendship Blooms set. This set comes with 3 beautiful quotes, however, I chose to use the miss you sentiment from the "Sunflower Miss you, friend" itty bitty. The background paper is one of my absolute favorites to use. It is from the Unity paper pack by Graciellie Designs called "Coffee Lovers". 

I am loving this next card. I didn't create it with anyone particular in mind. I knew with such a powerful statement it could really fit any of us! I'm thinking I should make up several cards with different images and include this statement. So many I could send a card like this to. 

I so love this beautiful Angie Girl. Violet Girl. She has a sheek boho style that is so soft and engaging! You. Need. Her. The sentiment I used is from a Tierra Jackson winter set called "Unique". This sentiment is a favorite of mine that I have used so many times over the years. 

I'd love to know which card is your favorite!

As always~

  6. Sweet Ms. Bobbie Sue!! Beautiful cards. Your friend will be so happy to recieve this gorgeous card, really love the background! Both are equally my stunning, but... The 2nd "Boho" image with the great color choices is a fav for being fun with that great dotted edge. Love them both... and you, my gracefilled friend, remain in my prayers! ♥️🍄🙏🏻

  7. Beautiful cards. Love your coloring and designs. And Violet is one of my favorites, but I LOVE all the flowers too! Thank you for your friendship and inspiration!

  8. These two cards are so different in style but both just gorgeous!! I like them both, but if I have to pick one it would be the bold yellow flowers against the black and white plaid. So striking!

  17. Your friendship cards are beautiful!

  18. Such a sweet theme and a beautiful way to celebrate the friendships we've made through this craft! I truly know why they say crafty friends are the best friends :) Your cards are just beautiful! The depth of color you've achieve on the gorgeous yellow floral card is delightful!
