Friends R Us.

Special post today in honour of a very special friend namely Miss Di of Pixie's Crafty Wokshop who has now been running the Snippets challenge on her blog for 7 yrs.  Darnell got the girls in the snippets playground together and organised a blog hop as a Thankyou to Di for all her hard work.
My card took a while to colour in  and then I needed to make sure it arrived before hitting the publish button.
 My first entry in the snippets playground was way back on #3 (#1 and #2 being out of the question due to me having my wrist in plaster at the time ) and how can I ever live down the incident with the Pogo Stick and the Duck pond!! (I can tell you with the utmost certainty that that darn duck pond is very deep indeedy.)
So in honour of the occasion here is the card I made for Di. Now this digi image is us to a T when we get let loose for a day at the craft shows. We have been known to demolish/dismantle metal display stands, knock boards flying and erm even do things with the soap dispenser in the ladies!!

 Digi is from Sparkle n Sprinkle called 'Old Friends' and coloured with my trusty promarker pens and a silver gel pen. Sentiment is made using my new toy,WRMK 's Punch board. Paper is a real oldie from  my stash.  This is the card lying flat for posting and below showing open  as a step fold card and also shows the sparkle from the  silver gel pen .
