Forever Friends

A very close friend of mine emailed me a message the other day and we were reminiscing about fun times spent when we used to get together during lunchbreak at work...sitting under a big tree on the University campus eating our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. After our conversation I knew I had to make a card to mail to her. Sometimes geographical distance separates us from our friends, but a true friend is never far from the heart.

I purchased this darling "friends" stamp at Heather's Stamping Haven in Ottawa. I think this is one of my favorite Heather's Stamping Haven stamps. It is so sweet and poignant.

I recently found these gorgeous K&Company patterned papers stack at Michaels. For this card I definitely chose the background papers first and then colored the image to coordinate. And the sheer ribbon was a little piece, about 10 inches long, that was in my ribbon bin. A couple years ago when my mom was moving she gave a sack full of little ribbon scraps from her sewing room. Some of the scraps are just a few inches long (never throw away something that may be of value to you in the future!) The color was perfect on this card.

Card Recipe Ingredients:

Stamp: Heather's Stamping Haven
Designer Paper: K&Company
Ink: Colored with Copic Markers
Accessories: Machine stitching, Martha Stewart eyelet border punch, miscellaneous ribbon and buttons, pop dots.

Speaking of Heather's Stamping Haven, Heather just began a blog for her shop and you can connect to it HERE.

Time to dash off a note on the inside and mail this. I think my friend will get a kick out of this. Miles may separate us but our friendship holds strong.

  5. Darling card! Great paper to enhance your out of this world coloring. Really liked the story about lunch and "a true friend is never far from the heart" . You ever come my way and I'm all over feeding you pb&j, ok? Sounds better than a fried furwad sandwich, doesn't it??
