My Sister

Well I always wanted a sister, but I got brothers, lol.  My three daughters are lucky -they all have each other and I always tell them may irritate each other but you'll always be friends.  From what I've heard, sisters have a unique and special bond.

Like I said, I don't have any sisters, but I do have my best friend.  We've been friends for over 25 years. We've definitely been through thick and thin together.  But we always joke we're more like sisters than anything.

As soon as I got this new vintage image from TLC, I immediately thought of my best friend and decided to make her card with it and her favorite papers from SEI.

The image is so unique and vintage I just adore it!!!  I also used the vintage corners that are part of the TLC set called A Little Edgy.  You can find this image as well as the fab corner set in the TLC store by clicking here.  I colored the banner and the corners with my Copics (R32, R83) and distressed them both in some black Making Memories Distress ink.

Now I just need a reason to send it to her ;)

  1. THis is really nice Sarah. :-)
    I do have a sister, two in fact, but its so true that you can have friends that are just "like blood". Its a gift to treasure for sure.
    Love the vintagy-ness of this, I love old time photographs.

  2. This is so cute, Miss Sara! I love those colors, and the vintage feel...just lovely. I'm like you, I don't have any blood sisters, but I do have a couple of sisters of the heart.

  3. Love the look of this card...the image goes so perfectly with papers and the added embellies! Gorgeous!
    I am extremely close to my sister NOW. But when we were kids OH Heck No. It was always "ON" between us, but now the best of friends.
    I am sure your "sister" is going to love it! HUGS

  4. Hi Sara! This is such a lovely card! I love pink and black together. You did such a beautiful job on the corner embellishments! They are lovely! I have been blessed with two sisters. I'm so happy to know that you have been blessed with a very close "Sister" friend and three beautiful daughters! Your Best Friend will LOVE this card!
