Enjoy the Ride

Sunday, March 3, 2013

I actually made this card last week, hoping to join in with the Verve monthly sketch challenge on SCS.  I got all the cards done, and photographed, but not loaded here...... or there!

This one is made with SU! cardstocks, inks and bling.  The stamp set is from Close to My Heart.

And now I'll let you in on the secret!  The top strip of black CS wasn't supposed to be there!  I had some ink on the edge of my acrylic block when I stamped the black dot piece.  The ink transfered to the card front and I had to cover it up! =)
All in all, I'm tickled with this card.  Even the mess up! 

Hope you enjoy your ride for the rest of the week!



Friendship Friday: Beautiful Wishes

Friday, March 1, 2013

Welcome to the first installment of Friendship Friday.

I want to celebrate friends and the relationship we have with them.  Especially the Friend '...who sticks closer than a brother.'

When I think about the friends I have, and how we interact with one another, I become very excited to know that that level of familiarity is what Jesus wants us to have with Him.  As well as my friends may know me......and love me despite!......Jesus knows me even better and loves me even more!

What a beautiful thing!

The Featured Friend for this first post of Friendship Friday is a beautiful lady I met in blogland.  Laura Kirste Campbell is the former owner of Layers of Color who now designs for Penny Black. (Amongst other hats she wears!)  I've been blessed many times over by the Faith Art Friday posts Laura hosted on LOC, as well as wonderful words of encouragement through personal messages.  Laura is an inspirational artist, but more than that, she loves the Lord and shines that through her conversaton as well as her art.

Laura has graciously consented to showcase this card for us to CASE.

Laura's card uses the 'Dahlias' stamp set designed by Nina Bracket and available at Penny Black.

Here is my card made with everything SU! except the seam binding! =)

Now it's your turn!  Create a card that makes you think of friends and just how special they are! You can CASE Laura's card, or use it as inspiration and when you are done, come back here and leave a comment that includes a link to the post or gallery page where you've uploaded your card.

Thanks for joining me for Friendship Friday.  I hope you'll come back next week and tell a friend or two, too!
