Friends - Priceless!!!

Hey Girls!!!

How are you doing today... :)

am here to share a special card with all of you... 

we are celebrating 'being us' over at the Indian Craft Room... 
our very own space created by the 2 uber talented lovely ladies Asha and Tejal... the card has been inspired by the image over at the ICR...

it won't be wrong to say that this card is very 'Me'... not only does it have some of my favorite things but it also depicts my lifeline... my Friends!!!

to begin with... the Color... L-O-V-E pink and the way it beautifully gels with brown and black...

tried paper pleating too for the 1st time and it was fun... reminded me of the folded fans from the childhood days :) lolzzz...

2ndly... Rhinestones... simply adore the delicacy and that extra oomph that it adds to
anything it gets added to... 

finally the image... my PRICELESS FRIENDS (for everything else there's mastercard:)  lolzzz...)

for me my friends are super super precious... 
most of my friends know that i am bad at staying in touch, 
they still love me and haven't abandoned me yet... lolzzzz.... 

they love me for what i am... 
just the thought of my friends being there for me , comforts me... 

and off late, have made some amazingly beautiful friends @ the blogland and i wonder what i would do without them... they are not only encouraging in everything i create but they also know how to turn a dull day into a bright one for me... 

love u loads:)
Thanks for letting me be your friend!!!
