What Better Friends Than These?

A sewing challenge! I knew SCS Hope You Can Cling To would eventually have a paper sewing challenge so when the day arrived today I was all geared up. In addition to stitching, real or faux, the card is to represent a "Grateful for Friendship" theme. While I was googling some appropriate digi embroidery patterns, I ran across this one, free of course!. Voila! I found my theme. Needless to say, I didn't use the pattern for sewing, but as a digi stamp - oh clever me :) I covered the jars with Crystal Effects, hand embroidered the little daisies around the nestie inverted circles and topped it off with some stash ribbon and Thickers. I'm sure this isn't quite what SCS had in mind for "friendship" but I can't think of any more perfect partners. I think I can be assured this duo never goes to bed angry!
