TSC for my Bestie

Lesley gave the Twisted Sisters challenge this week. She asked us to make a card for our BFF.
My card is going to my friend, Pat. Pat lives in California I met her on Splitcoast stamping.
We finally got to meet each other IRL and we have been best friends every since. We visit each other and our husbands join us so they have gotten to be great friends, too. When I made this card, I tried to put everything on it that related to Pat. If I were out on a limb, she would come out to rescue me. She is always there for me Sunday through Monday. The trust ticket symbolizes how much we trusted each other before we met. Picking Pat for a friend was like picking the most beautiful rose in the garden because she is beautiful inside and out. The measuring tape symbolizes that there is no tape measure long enough to measure our friendship. Yes, this is a 100 per cent true story just as the card says.

I used Recollections My Mind's Eye paper, the main image is from Printworks and the limb is a Clear Dollar stamp. I hope you enjoyed hearing about my bestie. Thanks, for looking.
