To Grow Old Friends


Happy Saturday!

I’m in such a good mood today. It’s Saturday AND we are going off to visit my best friend over the weekend. We are leaving in a bit and I can’t wait. Of course I did her a card and I love how perfect the new stamps from The Rubber Cafe fits this occasion. :)

This card is a CASE of THIS beauty (the second card in the post, the first one is a stunner too, as are ALL the cards on Jean Martin’s blog!). I did it for CASE Study’s challenge #104  to CASE a card from one of the DT’s. FUN!!!

Isn’t the Rose a beauty? :) It’s from the Rose Garden set. And the background is stamped with the new Wood Grain. Yummy!

I had a fun day yesterday too – I saw my first card in print with Northridge Publishing, in the Create: Stamping issue that hit the stands the other day. Wohoo! And another fun thing is my card is on the same spread as a card by my blogging buddy and DT partner Audrey and that is an honor! But – they misspelled my blog address! It ends up at a Spanish Tesa’s blog. Oh well!

We are off, have a FAB weekend1!!!

Ooh, this is stunning, Tesa! A card I could stare at for hours and not catch all the amazing detail! Love the papers and color combo and love the paper pieced flower. So cool how you added a touch of coloring over the patterned paper. Really love the pretty topper and the layered crisp white die cuts. Fabulous sentiment, too!
Congratulations on your first Northridge pub! And how fun that we are on the same spread! I cannot wait to see!! :)
