Silences make the real conversations between friends

The ATC swap for this month on BF forum is Friends. I don't usually get my swaps done so early in the month, but when I was having my big craft sort out during the week I came across a paperbag studio stamp that I love, but haven't used for a while, and couldn't resist using it. Unfortunately, it wouldn't fit on to an ATC with the sentiment, but I still decided to use it because I think it still depicts friendship. I stamped with memento rich cocoa and coloured with copics.

This is also for:

Lexi 39: friendship
365 cards day 37: pure contentment
Secret crafter Saturday 133: dust off your stash - haven't used the stamp for a while
Totally stampalicious: kickin' it old school - stamp that hasn't seen ink for at least 6 months
Mark's finest papers speedy the cat 54: use paper, stamps and inks, but no embellishments
Sweet stampin': childhood memories
Rubber cafe: anything but a card
Craft your passion 56: anything goes
Pollycraft 91: anything goes
Papertake weekly: anything goes
Top tip Tuessday 32: open challenge
Iris' spot 18: anything goes
Scrappy frogs: anything goes
Catch the bug: anything goes
ATC challenges 1: anything goes
Inspire me Fridays 5: anything goes
