Forever Friends...

....and believe me, the person receiving this better be just that after the trauma I went through being so neat and cute to produce this for them. lolol. The lengths you go to for a friend ay...

As any regular visitors reading this will know, I'm not a neat cuddly bear person, but seeing as I went totally beyond all comfort zone boundaries craft wise to produce this I thought it perhaps worth while to enter this into the Forever Friends challenge, which, this week is Pink, Brown and Flowers.

I used a circle of perspex as the main background and so have taken a couple of photos to illustrate this.





I'm now off for a cuppa to calm myself...I could do with a stronger tipple but its not Christmas yet lol....

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. ;0) heehee

Expertly done, great idea. But I am with you regarding the fact these images do absolutely nothing for me. I hope you are not offended. I do not mean to offend. Just not my cup of tea. Glad to hear you are not sticking with them as I love your work.
