Friend to Friend

TGIF Peeps!! So glad the weekend is upon us!!! It has been one of "those" weeks. On a positive note, I did finally find my cell phone this morning, in the bottom of the laundry hamper!!! How it got there I do not know!! But I am just glad I found it and it is still fine, just has a dead battery, it is home on the charger as we speak!!!

Today's card is dedicated to my friend Lois. She told me yesterday that I HAD to ink up another stamp from the "Wagon Full of Fun" set besides the duck!! So this ones for you Lois, Hope you like it!

I made it with this weeks sketch on the Stamps and Smiles Blog. You should check out the sketch challenge they have on Thursday's, if you haven't already, those girls post the cutest cards!!!

I started mine with a base of so saffron and followed that with some baja and then some DS paper from the "Sweet Slumber" pack.

The strip on the side is also baja and more paper from the same pack. I used my EK success wavy edge punch on both sides. The next layer is some more baja that I ran through the cuttlebug with the swiss dot folder. I added some so saffron ribbon, from SAB, and tied a "bow knot".

The main image is stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with ink from smashing my pad together and squishing some ink onto the lid of the ink pad. I used ruby red and baja for the flower petals. The center of the flowers are so saffron, the leaves and stems are old olive and the pots are really rust. I then cut them out and mounted them onto some PTI white cardstock and colored in some grass/ground with more old olive and my aquapainter. that piece is then mounted onto so saffron and added to the card with some foam tape.

The sentiment comes from the SU set called "Pocket Silhouettes" an is stamped with black stazon onto white and cut out. I added a ruby red flower with a silver brad to the sentiment edge.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
