I Made A Card!









For My Good Friend, April!

I found some of my favorite friendship quotes, as well as some new ones, on the web and printed them in different fonts on the tags which I then inked, and stamped, and then put eyelets on the big ones and then put cool fun fibers on all of them and tucked them all in the pocket!!! Here's to friendship, and here's the quotes that I used, a little gift to you. I'm all about good girl friends!!!

“If friends
were
flowers,
I’d pick
you!”

Who finds
A faithful
Friend, finds
A treasure.
-Jewish
saying

Hold a
True friend
With both
Your hands.
-Nigerian
Proverb

The best
mirror is
an old friend.–George
Herbert

Two are better than one;
because they have a good
reward for their labor.
For if they fall, the
one will lift up his
fellow: but woe unto
him that is alone
when he falleth; for
he hath not another
to help him up.– Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.

A friend
may well
be reckoned
the masterpiece
of nature.– Ralph Waldo
Emerson

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, who has sight so keen and strong
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"A friend is
one to whom
one may pour
out all the
contents of
one's heart,
chaff and
grain together,
knowing that
the gentlest
of hands will
take and sift
it, keep what
is worth keeping
and with a
breath of kindness
blow the rest away."
-Arabian Proverb

Oh wow! That is such a great card! I like the idea of all the tags inside. Your friend can take them out to use them for bookmarks and be reminded of the great friend she has. It's like a little gift inside a card! I might have to try that.
