I "heart" my extraordinarily creative friends -- you will too when you visit them!

A very special word and a very special bond. I am so blessed with great friendships. This card was a serendipity creation with no planning and I am delighted with the results. Sometimes, I think I overwork an idea. I used my very first stamp (the fern) purchased at a State Fair many, many years ago which began my addiction. See Count Your Many Blessings. The Friendship phrase is from Wordsworth. When I received this stamp from an e-bay win, I was certain that I would never be able to use it because it is so large -- but it worked perfectly here. The frame is a sizzix die cut from copper cardstock and the image is Rubber Stampede "Woman in Repose." All components arranged on a slightly tinted 8 1/2 x 11 folded in half card stock. Frame is raised with foam mount for dimension and the rest was simply stamped with Memories black ink giving the slightest bit of blush to the woman's cheeks. Thanks for stopping by.
