My little friends are compliments of Land of Nod, and the rest is fashioned from bits and pieces of a kit from Create Wings Designs and Catherine Designs. About friends: More than 10 years ago, I met a feisty, intelligent, funny lady from Australia on a pen pal site. Our friendship has grown through the years. We learned digital art together, we've shared life's ups and downs. She is the best friend I've never met. You may know her. Her name is Marie! I'll dedicate this piece to her.
