I feel like I have made new friends just by ordering from your site. The service and help from Beth was terrific and I can tell through your messages that YOU ALL really care. Thanks.

WOW! that is an incredible tutorial on the big kahuna. I love all the details.

Fiiendship quote:

Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say. Best friends listen to what you don't say


This is a quote that I love and always think of all my friends (all my online friends too) when I read it. 'Laughter is the shortest distance between two people'. So keep lol'in because we are here lol'in with you. Oh and thanks so much for sharing the project with us it's great!! I am making one for Father's Day.

What an awesome project. Here is quote that my mother told me when I was little and I have always remembered it: True friends are like diamonds, precious, but rare. False friends are like autumn leaves found everywhere.


Fun card! There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Friends are a wonderful thing to have. My true friend loaned us her SUV to move a piece of furniture because we were SUVless at the time and couldn't get it in one of our cars. Loved your project. I don't have that much patience or creativity. I love that Hawaiian shirt stamp. I did my husband's birthday card with it. He loves his Hawaiian shirts.


The best thing about a true friend is the ability to tell them anything at anytime of the day or night. Knowing that they will be there no matter what is priceless. I'm fortunate to have a couple friends that fall into that category! Thanks for offering such awesome blog candy!

I love your big kahuna project! The name alone cracks me up! I also love everything that you share on your blog! My friend is moving to California tomorrow. She starts driving from OH to CA at 7 a.m. We just had a big party for her to send her off. It was at a local state park and we rented a shelter. We had a blast even though it was 90 degrees here yesterday. I saw a card that said: As friends, we have more than Paris and Britney. The inside of the card said: Brains and underpants. LOL!

my high school art teacher, Mrs. Coleman, told us that if you could name 5 true friends when you died, you will have lived a full life.


Missed ya! What a cute project! My best friend has volunteered at Misericordia for me (A home for disabled children), babysits for me when no one else will, and is always there when I need someone to talk to!

Your project is simply wonderful! So glad to see you back here! I'm looking forward to seeing all the quotes on friends posted here in your card class I am having next month focuses on I could sure use some help in the quote department! Better yet, winning the friends sentiments stamps would be pretty wonderful, too! And, my friend quote is, 'friends are flowers that never fade'.

Melissa (smileytexan)

I have a dear friend of mine who is going through a divorce and she knows that she can count on me to help out when she needs it with her kids or just to talk. Not only am I helping her out, we're getting to know each other much more and it has brought us closer during this time. She's a good friend!

Love your project too!! Too cute!


Wow! That was quite the project. I just might use it as a birthday gift for a coffee loving friend.

I have some very wonderful friends. In April my son had open heart surgery to correct a defect. In all the getting ready and, well, just having two little boys, my house was completely trashed. So 6 of my friends invited themselves over to clean my house from top to bottom. They did my laundry, folded it and put it away. Even cleaned my closet! At the time I thought they were a God-send, but they are just wonderful friends.

So recently when one of them went on a much needed vacation, with the help of another friend, I was able to return the favor and clean her house from top to bottom!

Love the Hawaiian shirt. What a perfect project for father's day.

My favorite quote is: A friend is someone wo knows the song in your heart and sings it to you when you forget the words.


Love your work, Ellen. I have a friend who is dying of cancer, so I have visited her several times bringing small things she will enjoy--wildflowers, baked oatmeal with apples for her breakfast, or a homemade treat.


WOW - now THAT'S what I call a tutorial!!! Thank you for sharing that!

My favorite friend quote is this one:

"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."-- Walter Winchell

Isn't that SO true!!!??? Thanks again for sharing!!!

Ok here is my quote " The only thing better than a really good friend..... Is a really good friend with a bag of M&M's". I read your blog daily and your store is one of my go to places. You are very much appreciated!

Eveline van Heijst

Hi Ellen, I'm fairly new to your blog. Got here through SCS.
I have a small story about friendship. 3 Years ago my DH was in hospital, for 7 very long weeks. It took me an hour every day to get there and another hour (sometimes 2) through rush hour to get back home. Well, every saterday and sunday either my brother or sister who live an hour away from me picked me and the children up from home and drove us to the hospital and back and when we got back to the town where we live we could all drive straight to a friends house who cooked for us all every saturday and sunday while my husband was in hospital. Such a relieve not to think about dinner for 2 days and just sit and relax. This kind of friendship is priceless.

Love the project and of course adore the blog candy!
I love your blog (and your store!) so much!
My quote for you on friendship.....
"My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me."
- Henry Ford

p.s....Hope you are feeling better!! :)

My best friend and I both happened to have a baby (1st and last) at age 39 and our kids are now 7. I made her a small scrapbook full of pictures of the four of us with different friendship quotes on the pages. It has been so great to have kids the same age and do so many fun things together as they grow up.


true friends are like dimonds, precious and rare,

false friends are like leaves found everywhere.



Wow; that project is great! Thanks so much for the chance to win blog candy.

I think the sweetest thing that a friend has done for me lately is that she gave me a book of Psalms. Now, I have the Psalms in my bible, but this is a great book of just them for me to carry around and just really help to renew my faith quickly throughout my day. It's been a blessing and I'm so thankful for her.

Again, thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win!

I can't believe the work you do. It's all so beautiful. I count myself so lucky to have had not one, but two very best friends. I'm sure I would have gone crazy without them.


My best friend almost died 13 years ago. We were both pregnant with our first babies and she was about a week away from her due date and she passed out at work and had a brain aneurysm. They took the baby and she was put into a coma for a couple of months. I couldn't see or speak to her for about 2 months. I was just sick. I just couldn't bear to lose her. She's fine now and has another child about the same age as my second. She moved closer to me and we have a different relationship now. She has great long term memory but her short term is a little iffy. I don't know why I told you this it's just that I treasure her friendship in a different way now were more than BFF's. Thanks Cynthia
