You've got a friend....

Are you ready for another IO challenge?? This one is all about friends! Simply design a card using at least one IO stamp for a close friend, then be sure to mail it!

For my creation, I wanted to let one of my friends from high school that I have lost touch with that -- we need to talk! So, I plan to put this in the mail this week to her....

I don't know why, but I am a sucker for "build your own tree" style sets. THIS one is my favorite but after seeing the one I used above, I can see a lot of fun uses for it too! I used the solid tree, and then after stamping it in Brown Vivid! ink, I took the solid tree leaves and stamped that in two shades of Memento Ink - Bamboo and New Sprout. And, then, who can forget the tire swing? I think this is a darling set of stamps! The sentiment is called Mini Miss You. I have to say because it is all stamping and no coloring -- this is a pretty easy peasy card that doesn't really take a ton of time. Perfect for those times when you just want to get a cute card in the mail!

Want to play in the challenge? You have until Saturday at 9 p.m. EST. Players will have their cards posted on the IO blog and the winner of the drawing will walk away with a $25 gift certificate to the IO online store! Click HERE for the official details!
