Friends Forever


The weeks just fly by don't they?  It is time once again for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time, the challenge is to "Show Some Love."  With Valentine's Day soon upon us, the timing of of challenge could not be better.  For my own card, I chose this sweet image by Artistic Outpost and lightly colored it with Distress markers.  Simple embellishments include several paper doilies, vintage buttons and seam binding, die cut hearts (a complimentary thank you gift with a recent order at The Funkie Junkie Boutique) and Ranger Liquid Pearls.  The background paper is a digital print out by Gecko Galz.  I hope you will pop over to FSC and check out all the beautiful inspiration prepared by my Design team Sisters and I hope you, too, will submit an entry of your own.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Best wishes, Yvonne

Love this one too, Yvonne - Think and Wonder is maybe my favourite set of all! Fabulous layered doilies... I'm sure you know that both this and the Favorite Book card could be entered for the AO Referral - as many entries as you like in a month (as long as they've got an AO stamp on them) and you can win another set of stamps if you get drawn out of the hat...

This is full of delight, that adorable image and beautiful use of the Gecko Galz digital papers and your usual attention to detail.
