Friends forever - Inspiration Destination #148

Wednesday April 11, 2018
 
Welcome back to another fun challenge at Inspiration Destination #148
Our theme these two weeks is 
 ANYTHING GOES + USE REAL STAMPS
 
 
So my card.. it made me cry.. Have you ever had a best friend who has passed away? Well my best friend who I had known for over 35 years passed away 10 yrs. ago and she's been so strongly on my mind.. She was also a crafter and it was so much fun seeing her free style of paper crafting.. So when I stamped the dogs I am the one behind and she is the one leaving the scene.. that's why one part of her is white.. I tried to keep the scene simple. I used my cloud template and ground template with Ranger inks to create the background. I then used copics and colored the kraft card stock. The postage piece was given to me by Monika at Creative with Monika.. I think it's by My favorite things. The stamp set is from Simon says.
