*Garden of Friendship* - July's Dueling Darlings-


*Click on any pictures if you wish to enlarge*

Hello my dear followers and friends...
Today I have a real treat to share with you . This adorable, beary sweet card was made from a wonderful Garden of Friendship' card kit that Terry sent us Dazzlers for our July's duels against the Divas (with LJ being their hostess this month.)
I received mine just a few days ago and was itching  to play with the new cute image and all the wonderful stuff received...
Terry's kit was absolutly AMAZING and full of goodies , especially tons of  felt flowers and buttons...I kept ooohhing and awwhing over each items...WOW,so much to chose from!
Thank YOU darling WingPit Sistah! (our pet name for

Terry also challenged us to add a story or memory about a good friend:

My story is about an awesome and talented friend of mine from Italy
Her name is Tiziana (pr: Tee-ze-ah-nah)
We first met,virtually, through an italian food-chat,where we were sharing many recipes and suggestions and how to improve our skills in the kitchen and be more creative in the food's world...especially when it came to bake and decorate cakes....
That led to phone calls and e-mails and presents sent back and forth for the main occasions such as Christmas and Birthdays... Tiziana met my Parents before she even met me, during one of their trips back 'home' many years ago... Our friendship grew and grew and to this day we are still reading each others almost daily and still share a great friendship and suggestions .
Last time we saw each other was 4 years ago,in the Adriatic Riviera...I am still waiting for her to hop on that plane and come to Canada to visit me ...I know one day that shall happen!
Her Birthday is coming up very soon and I will definetly send this card to her....:o)

Sweet, Ms P! I love the interior of the card as much as the exterior. Your friendship sounds perfect. Glad you found each other.

Vecia, mi fai venire la duck skin:-)
Mi ricordo ancora quando ti diedi il mio numero di telefono, avevo Eugenia appena nata, ero agitata talmente che non dormii una notte, assillando la mia dolce metà dicendogli "e se è un male intenzionato?".-)
poi conobbi i tuoi genitori, quella persona speciale che è il tuo papà, il mio primo e unico fan:-), che ci incantò in questo tinello di Renazzo in penombra, con i suoi racconti. Per ore l'avremmo ascoltato. E la tua mamma che ascoltava attentamente con il suo sorriso che infonde sicurezza e buon umore....poi arrivasti tu...pazienza!:-)
Lo zai che scherzo Vecia!
Come hai scritto anche io continuo a sperare di poter venire in Canada, intanto mi preparo a ricevere il più bel postino canadese...
Graziee!! XXOXX

Paola, this is such a bright & cheery card!! Love how you used the flower to frame the bear!! Sort of like a '60's hippy look! I love it.
