Friendship Card

Well, it has been over week since I have been able to make a card.  I have been over my head with year-end work and I am happy to report that my overtime is done!  Work should return to normal next week allowing me my evenings and weekends for family and craftng.

While I was doing all my extra work I received my order from Our Daily bread Designs.  I won, by random counter, one of the challenges recently and decided to stock up on a few things like the Thinking of You, Get Well and Friendship sets as well as Scripture Collection #4.  I also received my order from JustRite Stampers.  Finally I have the Spellbinders custom dies for cutting out the Nested Frames I purchased earlier this year.  I also indulged in the new Fancy Tags set.

Yesterday, I stopped by my local scrapbook store after work and found that they got their order of all the new Spellbinders dies.  I picked up a the two new Fancy Tags and Labels 18.  Yeah!!  I have new toys to play with - better get cracken!

My card today uses two images from the ODBD Friendship set.  I love the verses, thoughts and especially the dragonfly flourish!  I added a little Stickles to the scrolls and Chrystal Effects to the dragonfly wings.

The design for this card follows this weeks Mojo sketch.  I used a new Fancy Tag for the sentiment and my Label 4 for the dragonfly image.  The Dp is from Stampin Up and Friendship metal from Michaels.  I used the other side of the pink paper in the center inside - it's little polka dots. The flowers are handmade using my tutorial and the leaves are a MS punch.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Paper Romance - paper, sentiment, image, embelishments
SCS Devine Design challenge - April verse

Now that I have my time back I plan to make a few cards over the weekend.  I am also working on an alternative to the baby carriage posted a couple of weeks ago.  Thanks for checking in.
