Great Friend MoJo Monday 81

This card is for the MoJo Monday 81 sketch. Please check out there awsome site at Lost of fun over at there blog. This week there having a fun contest. You wont want to miss it.

This has been such a busy week seamed like I wasent able to get as many cards posted as I would have liked to. I did how ever get my new design made for my blog. How ever the camera for some strange reason did not get the accurate colors of the banner. So when I have more time to re take them and play with my camera you may see this set in a whole new light. I eneded up having to pick out a whole new background in totally differnt colors then was planned. This is what I came up with. What do ya think? At least it look soft and ready for spring. I was getting tired of reading on the black background and thought you might be too. So I need a change. The card that I made was inspired by my colors that my blog was to turn out like. As you will see my blog colors are nothing like that at all. Thanks to my camera!!! It got to be some sort of setting.
I have some really great friends and I bet you do to. It is always nice to have a great friend. I have a special friend that has been going through a tough time right now. Having to give up so much for some one she loves dearly but always giving so much in return to whom ever she come in contact with. Never thinking about her self but always thinking about others. This card is for here to let her know how much I appriciate the great friend that she is and for all that she does for me.
