A Friend........

Hello and happy Friday friends!  Today I am coming to you with a tag that I have made just because. Do you ever have those days where you just don't feel motivated and not so creative? Well, I do and I wanted to create for a couple of days, but just was not feeling good and even after sitting in my room for over and hour nothing happened!  So I cleaned off my table and started new and got all of my pretty flowers out, grabbed some laces and just went for it and this is what came out


A Friend

Paper: PTI White, Bazzill pink textured card stock, DP DCWV   Primrose

Well, this is it for me for today.  I hope you all will have a blessed and super creative weekend!
