My Friend

Before I left California, I signed up for a swap using products from the new 2011-2012 catalog. The stamp set I chose is called My Friend. This set is perfect for cute and simple cards. So, that it what I decided to do for a swap card. I also love the new scallop-edge ribbon so I added a little strip of that to dress it up a bit and came up with this:



The complete list of supplies:

Stamp Set: My Friend

Cardstock: Confetti Cream, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White

Ink: Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi

Accessories: Chocolate Chip Scallop Dotted Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch

This card is very simple but fun. These are the cards the ladies in my card class love to make :) I love this stamp set because it is great to use as a background for so many of our sets that have simple words to add to a card front. This image would also be great as a silhoutte on a sponged card........another project for another day (lol!)

It won't be long now until I can get back to stamping. We may be moving in the next couple of weeks - just waiting for the place we are looking at to be ready. But I will get a chance to stamp today because I need to make swap cards for Ronda Wade's meeting tonight. I can't wait to see all of my stamping friends. It has been quite some time since I have seen them. I am really looking forward to spending some time with them and sharing ideas. With the new Holiday Mini Catalog that started on September 1st, I am sure to get see some awesome projects and get some great swaps :)

The weather here in mid-Michigan today is very fall-like :) I love this time of the year. The leaves are starting to turn orange and red so I know it won't be long. We are just getting a taste of it as our temps will be closer to 80 by the weekend. But, I am enjoying it while it lasts and looking forward to cooler days. Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day! 'Til next time................................

Happy Stamping,

Laurie
