What would we do without friends in our lives?! A shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen when you need to decompress, someone to giggle with just because, a comrade that understands you through and through! People come and go in our lives but a true friend will be with you forever. That is the theme of this month's free sentiment: Friends Forever. When you come across one of these special people, be very thankful as you've been blessed indeed.
This month, think of all the friends that you have who would love to receive a card letting them know just how much your relationship means to you. As usual my team, has come up with some interesting ideas so be sure to pop over to their blogs and see how their creations connect with the concept of this challenge. What direction will you go in? Whatever approach you take, we look forward to seeing your interpretation on this month's theme.
Don't forget when you link up your project and/or post, to please leave a comment letting us know how your creation relates to the concept of friendship if it isn't readily clear within the design itself or clearly written somewhere else in your post. Remember, the creation must be positive/inspirational/motivational AND adhere to the theme of friendship in order to be considered eligible for this month's prizes. While you may easily see how friendship relates to your creation, it may not be as apparent to me or the DT members. That is why we ask that you clarify it somewhere, whether here or in your blogpost. You can simply write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, if it would be easier. We just need to know how your project ties into the theme. Letting us know, clears up any ambiguity that may exist.

Credit Notes For This Creation:
This word art creation is in png format and published at 300 ppi. It is quite large in order to accommodate different programs that people work with. If you are a card maker you can always resize it smaller without distorting the quality.
I have used a couple existing design elements from Lisa Glanz (lisaglanz.com), in the creation of this sentiment. These elements were purchased with a commercial use licence as part of a bundle through Design Cuts (www.designcuts.com).
