For my girls...

Before Thanksgiving, I made a few cards for my friends that I never bothered to post. I thought I'd share them now, as I was looking through pics on my comp and came across them. There are more that I'll post, should I dig them up, but for now, here are two...I can't remembr all the details that go with them, but I'll try my best!

The above is one that I made for Dana, my oldest and dearest friend. The lt. blue BG is from Basic Grey's Pheobe Collection and I added a strip of dk. blue textured paper on the right. The sentiment is on vellum, from a Quote Stacks, and I believe the pp under the vellum is from DCWV's Rockstar Stack, and is layered atop an off-white scrap. I made the photo corners from just cutting triangles from the same lt. blue Basic Grey pp. The "Thank you" stamp is SU and I stamped that in dk. blue ink on off-white and affixed it with a popdot. I finished the whole thing off by stitching dk. blue emproidery floss down the side. I must say, I really liked this card, and enjoyed giving it!

I made this card for my friend Susie. Words cannot express my gratitude to Susie, but I won't go into it all, here. She knows what she's done. This is another card that I really liked when it was finished. The pp on top is from DCWV's Rockstar Stack, and the pp in the bottom is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time Stack (which I loooove)!! The sentiment is a rub-on, which I placed onto white pp, layered it with orange, a green tye-dye handmade paper scrap, and more white. There is a thin white ribbon seperating the two different papers, and a thicker sheer ribbon just above. I finished the card off with some gold eyelets in the bottom corners. Love it. By the way, if you can't read the says "A True Friend Never Gets In The Way Unless You Happen To Be Going Down." I fell in love with this statement, and have found it to be soooo true!!

You POSTED????! Hoooray!

I've been meaning to post the card you gave me on MY blog, but kept mis-placing it. Just "found" it again last night, in fact!

Love, love, LOVE the card you made Suz. Awesome all around!
