Lots to do - Friends/Friendship

What a week, don't think I've recovered fully from the Nec last Sunday and another busy week at work my craft mojo went into hiding hoping that comes back this week-end.

Lots of fabulous Autumn colours around in blogland last week great to see thank you all.  

This week at Lots to do we're all about Friends and Friendship. It was great meeting up with Alison and Hilda last Sunday two lovely girls and great friends, so we are celebrating friendship. A theme to take anyway you fancy and those two have done brillient things with it.

As mentioned Mojo went awol so this is a card I made about 3 weeks ago for another blogland friend who was very poorly and in hospital. Here in the UK we used to take a bunch of grapes with us when visiting family and friends in hospital. Visiting this time was a few thousand miles and a stretch water known as the pond out of the question. Stamped and embossed the grapes into grunge paper and coloured them with Promarkers and cut the image out.    The image is also stamped onto the first mat and the topper stuck with silcone of differing thickness to give it diamension.

How will you celebrate your friendships?  we are looking forward to seeing your projects.
