friendship at it's best- This one's for you Piyu, Shalini and Shruti

My last and final post for my truly inspirational friends who I have had the privilege to meet in the blog land...

Priyadarshini or Piyu as she is fondly called everywhere is known for her quilling but I love all her work which even doesn't have quilling... Her eye for color and neatness spurs me to try and maybe reach her level...Someone who is always there to just talk and have fun... :D

Shruti or Maddo is a crazy whack... Her style is totally unique and well I could not emulate her even if i wanted too.. Just do not have my brains working the way hers does... :D

Shalini is more than EVERYTHING to me and her friendship is now beyond the realm of just blogger or crafting...

So this is my dedication to them... The tute for this card was found on Pinterest and I had noted it down so sorry I cannot link it bk to the original...

After ages am back with a PICTURE HEAVY POST \m/
