It's all about friends!

This week the Impression Obsession DT challenged eachother to whip up a creation that is all about friends! With some of the new Sarah Phelps stamps aimed at friendship - this was a pretty easy "get" for me!

I just used two sizes of the curved rectangles for my main image and my mat. The images are from a new clear set called Flowers & Friendship. Stamp using Momento Tuxedo Black ink, chalk around the outside of your shape and then stamp the flowers off to one side and color with watercolor pencils. I blended my pencil with a SU Blender Pen. Mat it up with some 1/2" ivory satin ribbon, a decorative button and some fun decorative paper and that is pretty much it!

Here's a close up showing the colored flowers and sentiment!

You'll have to hop around and visit all the DT and see what they cooked up!

I might be burning the cardmaking midnight oil tonight! It's my baby boy's birthday today! Yep, he's a whopping 12 years old today and nearly stands eye to eye with me! EEK! My hubby reminds me I'm only 5'4 -- but still! So, for his birthday, I've got to make him a wild and crazy birthday card! Everything with my son is -- I like it..... BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME! I love how he says "I like it" really quietly and then blurts out the rest kind of loudly. Too cute. I am sure this will wear off but for now - I crack up at my kiddo. So, wish me luck -- I hope I can create something he likes -- because it's awesome!!! ;-) We're going to Pizza Hut tonight (his pick) with the whole extended family, so it should be "good times!"

Hope life is treating you well in your neck of the woods!
