A Wonderful Friend...

A good friend of mine is one of the sweetest people I know. She's terribly shy, so I won't name her here, but I wanted to show her how much she means to me. She is always doing kind things for other people and there is not a selfish bone in her body. I was inspired by JustRite's Random Act of Kindness Challenge to create something as both a thank you to my friend for all the years of help and friendship she has given to me, and to also send her something, well, just because!


I began with her favorite color combination, green and black. She is very striking and so is her taste, so I thought I would make her some decorative art to hang in her office or at home. I used the lovely images from the Kaleidoscope Borders & Centers and the perfect sentiment from the You Inspire Me cling set to create what I hope my friend will see as a tribute to her infinite random acts of kindness.
