Friends Always - TLC Progressive Challenge Day 9

I'm having fun with the Progressive Challenge at TLC Creations (here are my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth cards).

The dark woodgrain paper is from October Afternoon and the lighter woodgrain paper is from Recollections. All the other pieces are adhesive wood sheets from EKsuccess. Love this stuff! It cut so well in my BigShot, and printed fairly well. I colorized the TLC image in brown and printed it directly onto the wood sheet. The teacup dies are so fine, but they look so cool in wood! I added some Tea Dye distress ink to them. The border die from QuicKutz's Whimsy set.

I recently obtained this cute little wooden tags with the word "Toujours" on them. As far as I can tell, it is French for "Always" or "Still", so I added the word "Friends" (part of a stamp from an Amy Smyth/Inkadinkado set) to create a sort of Frenchlish sentiment!
