My Friend Darla

Hello My Sweet Blogging Friends!

It feels like it's been forever since I last made a card and posted.  There has been so much going on between the last post and this one!  My husband and I bought an auto painting business and while he is still at his regular job, I've been running the show at the new place.  By the time I get home, I am exhausted.  Last Friday, my husband had hernia surgery and has been hanging out at our shop this week so I was actually able to sneak in a little bit of crafting time while he answered phone calls and did estimates.  :)

I made this card for my dear friend Darla.  Her and I only just met each other this year, but we realized right off that we have so much in common and think so much alike.  We're always joking about how everything in life is so much better with wine...


I colored up this little cutie, Tilda with Love Potion, with my Copics and did up the card to enter a few challenges.  To celebrate the Fall season, I have pulled the flowers and fall leaves from my stash of paper crafting goodies.  I think they go quite nicely with the striped paper...

Here is the sentiment on the inside.



Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.  That always makes my day!

♥ Laura C.
