Friends and Thank you's

I love my friends. They are the icing on my life's cupcake! Some of them are sweet, ssome tart, some down-home-ish, some very stylish, and some I've never met IRL!! But they all make up my life. Today's card is a thank you for a friend I've never met in person, but she's prettied up my life by sharing her creativity online at Cardmaker Magazine's crop forum. I won't tell you her name, because she may be reading this post, but today's card is a thank you for her.

I CASE’d this card from Stampin’ Up’s demonstrator corner. The stamp sets are Wagon Full of Fun and Oval All stamp set. I haven’t played enough with these stamp sets – it’s really a cute wagon, don’t you think? I never thought to put flowers in my wagon – I’ve always used a vase or a basket, but wagons suit just fine, don’t you think?

The ingredients are: Paper – Real Red, Certainly Celery, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip; Ink – Staz-On Pumpkin, SU’s Chocolate Chip, and SU’s Watercolor Pencils and Crystal Effects. The Certainly Celery cs is textured using SU’s Sizzix Texturz Plates Backgrounds #1. I used Crystal Effects for the centers of the flowers and could have used some glitter there as well, but when you’re working at 11pm, thoughts don’t always flow with the river, if you know what I mean!! LOL!!

I hope you liked it. Thanks to those who gave me input on my questionable card yesterday. I agree - something needs to be added and just maybe it should have been some DSP or ribbon. Still, I'm so glad you responded!!! That means someone is reading my posts! YAAY!!

Here's a tip of the day:
Don't trash those old card catalogs and mailings! You can use them for color ideas when you get new stamp sets! Lots of good ideas in those old cats! I have one from 1999 and wish I had all of them!!

Thanks for stopping by!
