Bestfriends card

Happy friday! It's been a busy week around our house and TGIF! Today's project is a card I made for a really good friend that I don't get to see as often as I wish. She lives far away, but comes up to visit this area a few times a year and we always make a point of hanging out. This time we went to the tulip festival in Mount Vernon. There were not many tulips in bloom yet as it has been a cold start to spring, but we made the best of it. There were plenty of daffodils and hyacinth. She has a 8 month old lil girl that we had fun taking pics of with the different colored flowers, then we went to have lunch. It was a great day! Anyways, back to the project.
