Friends...

I sent off two cards Monday in the mail to some blog friends that both live in Nebraska!  This first card, I sent to  Bridget!  I received some mail candy from her and sent her this card as a thank you.  I love to receive mail and hopefully this will brighten her day :)



I used some paper that I had purchased at a local scrapbook store (that is now going out of business) :( and I stamped the image from the set "Elements of Style" in Melon Mambo ink and added a little "friends" from the "Tiny Tags" set.  I did quite a bit of sewing on this - sewing around each of the layers.

The next card was sent to Pam!  She recently sent me some goodies I was wanting to try out so I sent her a thank you, also!



This card, I started out with basic gray and used some scrap DSP and whisper white cardstock.  The stamp sets used were Thanks For Caring and With All My Heart - both from Stampin Up!  Basic gray and real red ink was used.  I added whisper white organza ribbon and the SU! mini pearls.

Pam always finishes the card, inside and out so I did that to this card - this WAS the inside:




I kept looking at the inside and thought it just needed a little more so I ended up adding this and was then happy with it:

I hadn't received my SU! white twine so I used embroidery floss and added a little Friends from the "Tiny Tags" set and punched it out.  I think it was just what it needed!

Looks like another busy week is ahead of me...again but hopefully I will be able to get into my craft room!

I did get the lawn mowed and it looks beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by - I love to read your comments!

Hi Gail, I received a beautiful card in the mail today! Thank you so much. You are so sweet! I can see that there was a great deal of time involved in making this card. And all the beautiful stitching! Thanks again. And yes, we DO need to get together sometime!
