Share Handmade Kindness

Jennifer McGuire has a Share Handmade Kindness challenge on her blog and it came at the time where I am about to make a Thank You card to my friend.

I want to make this Thank You card more special - one without the phrase "Thank You" on it.  This is what I've made:

She is indeed one of a kind and I can't tell how she can manage everything so well in her life.  She has a full time job, two small kids, leads an important role at church and spends time with her girlfriends (including me) and lends a hand to us without us having asked.

I was inspired by Kristina Werner's card here to make my own (speaking of that, I wanted to leave her a comment about her inspiration but I couldn't find the comments section of that blog post.  If you happen to know how to do that, please let me know!)  I do have the stamp sets that she used, but I love the new Close to My Heart Diamonds are Forever stamp set and thought I could make a card full of diamonds.

I stamped the diamonds with the following colors: Poppy, Sunset, Goldrush, Honey and Canary.  I like these colors!  After making this card, I like it so much that I also made a masculine version:

This one made use of Pear, Lagoon, Crystal Blue.  I love them both. :)

My feminine version is entering the following challenges:
