Friendship Day

Did you know that today is Friendship Day? It was originally founded by Hallmark back in 1919 and was intended for a way for people to celebrate friendship by sending each other cards. In 2011 the United Nations officially recognized July 30th as International Friendship Day, but most countries celebrate on the first Sunday in August.

So what better way to celebrate Friendship Day than a challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.

Theme:  Friendship Day
Sponsor:  Digital Delights

The image I am working with is called Popcorn Monkey. I had some circus design paper that I though would work great with this image. I used lots of Red on this card, my favorite color.

Thinking of you is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles 

And my sentiment is from Created with TLC

It is such a fun card, perfect for a friend or a loved one.  So "POP on over to the neighborhood and play along. We would love to make a new friend on "Friendship Day".

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:


  1. What a great card Monica - I love the stripey backing paper with the popcorn box - they complement each other so well. I have just made a card with lots of red on it - they really do stand out don't they. Happy Friendship Day!
