Great Friends!

Now, for all of you ladies (and perhaps gentlemen) who haven't given Digiments a try yet, let me tell you what's going on. Every Monday, Michelle will release a free digiment for you to use. Make a card with it, post in on your blog or to Split Coast Stampers, and link it back to the Digiments blog. By playing along, you'll be entered to win all of the new releases the following month! You can't go wrong. If you're at all intimidated by the "digital" aspect, this is a great way to try the digiments out and see how easy they are to use. And for those of you who are already hooked on the idea, to purchase any of the Digiments is only $1.00 apiece, or $20.00 for all 25 released this month. I'd say that's a really good value!
Now, this card has a story to go with it, that's really long. If you want to read on, here is the story: The other day I was lucky enough to meet up with a great friend for dinner. She's moved away, but was back in town for a convention so we were able to meet up for dinner and to chat for a few hours. It was so nice, but when I left I was really sad. She's the kind of friend that I will always miss living by, no matter how many years pass. Talking to her was like old times and I felt like she'd never left. So it was one of those bittersweet moments. The other day I was setting at my desk, unable to create, and I'll admit I was pouting. My husband asked, "Are you still pouting about your friends moving away?" He nailed it. Well, that same day Michelle emailed me this new digiment to try out. I almost cried. She just came up with the best possible sentiment I could have used to help try and break me out of this funk I'm in. I decided to use a color challenge and a sketch challenge, because I am needing that nudge to get my creativity back.

Beautiful card! It's too bad that you can't see your friend more often but I'm sure she will certainly appreciate receiving this beautiful card!

Such a lovely (and like you said bittersweet) story. There are definitely friends that I was sad to see move on to other parts of the world. Your card is lovely - I really like the colors.
