Friends are the flowers in the garden of life...

It's time again for the
challenge. 

This week's challenge is:

Make it Fab-ric!
(plus a sentiment)


Friends are the flowers in the garden of life...




  Colored with copics Blossom from Paper Pretties is the image I used on this cheery card.  The theme this week was to use fabric... I ended up not doing the original idea I had, although I did use fabric ribbon and a handmade bow and fabric flowers as an accent.  There are a couple of paper flowers on there too!  A bit of bling and pearls...


This week's Sponsor is:

Life Goes On...

I came across a quote and found myself drawn to it...

“I try not to speak about all the charities and people I help, because I believe we can only be truly generous when we expect nothing in return.” –Muhammad Ali

not only because it's Muhammad Ali but the words and the power of them. I find that a lot of times, there are those who profess to be charitable givers because of the prestige, because of the popularity of the charity, because of the tax benefits and because of the who's who... I guess that's okay for some... although I find the last part of the sentence oh so more resounding in me as the truth in philanthropy is expecting nothing in return. 

Hence my giving in a nutshell... I'm generous in my ways and have been 'burnt' by those taking advantage of it.  Thankfully, I've purged those that were repeat offenders, I did learn'd me somethin', from my life.   P.S. if you're reading this, it's not you!!!  :)
