Friends are like bookends...

Good afternoon, well evening really. I'm doing this post really quickly before I head off out for the night, celebrating my friend's 60th birthday! Happy Birthday to Jan if she reads this!

This is a birthday card for another friend of mine, who will be turning 40 in a few weeks time. her lovely sister is making her a memory book and has asked me to make something for it, including a personal letter of our years together. I have known Chris since I was 17 when we did A-Level German together! That's a fair few years now!

I made her a card using the gorgeous Tea and A Book from Saturated Canary as this image is Chris to a tee! She is an English teacher, so loves her books and needs her morning cuppa too! And although the hair is not quite the right style she tends to go for short hair more than I ever will do.

Chris isn't one for lots of colour either, preferring to stick to her shades of black, a it like me there, although I do throw in a bit of pink clothing now and then LOL, so I did this card is the only colour she really wears other than black - red. I will be adding my letter of all our memories together later on, but I hope she likes it!
