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!

Happy birthday to your son! Hope he enjoys his pizza :)

Your card is gorgeous---and it's funny, I've been to 3 blogs so far and all 3 of us have used the same set. Great minds and all, right?? LOL

Have fun celebrating!!!

Love the new Sarah Phelps images. Just picked up one of the Easter sets in Port Huron on our way to Detroit the other day. Went to the The Red Wings (YAY!!!) and the Flyers play. We had a great night.
Happy birthday to your big boy!!

Happy Birthday, Old Man Cal!

This card is darling. I love it! The stamps, the colors & coloring, those nesties (just got my own set, Bad Influence) and those polka dots! Your e-mail got to me, but it's ok and I still adore you. I'm ALWAYS a blubbering sentimental slob. Hope you have a wonderful day, Julie!
