A Friend to Me

I made this for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge. I used part of the In Bloom leaves for the flower stem and lengthened it (by selectively stamping only a part of the stem) to make it "fit"  the flower better.  Also the sentiment is created from 2 stamps: "You are a blessing to me" is stamped in 2 parts and the word "friend" is taken from the In Bloom Sentiment  which reads "there is nothing better than a true friend".
I like to have these kinds of cards on hand to give someone a little boost when they are feeling low.  Here in Nova Scotia, we are into Day 19 of rain, and that really affects peoples' moods.  I am very thankful that I like to make cards as it seems such a positive thing to be able to create something if I can't be outside  in the garden.
