A better place with FRIENDS!

Welcome Friends!
I don't know what I would do without my FRIENDS!
Someone to confide in when life's troubles have you down, a shoulder to cry on when you are at your breaking point and someone to laugh with when life treats you well.  
We ALL need our FRIENDS!
Today I'm sharing another quick & easy card creation using dies from the Dies R Us Store!
The inside was left blank so I could write a personal note to the friend 
I'm sending this too and as you may have noticed ... I tend to 'talk a lot' so need
all the white space available for what I have to say!  LOL!

I recently received my DRU order and must confess I was surprised to find this Poppystamps 'Super Squares' die was not exactly what I was expecting!  My bad ... didn't look at the size dimensions offered on our website ... just 'assumed' they were larger.

Poppystamps - Dies - Super Squares  (NEW)
But what a wonderful surprise when I simply laid them out onto a piece of designer paper and achieved this AWESOME background.   Now I can think of SO MANY other ways to use this ONE DIE SET!!

By adding a sentiment die cut, my card was complete!  VIOLA!!
The sentiment die I used is Penny Black 'Friends Frame' 51-041 and sorry to say not available in the store at the time of this posting.  BUT, there are TONS of sentiment word dies available from a wide range of companies ... simply go to our STORE and in the SEARCH box type the word you are looking for!  

This card literally came together in about 10 minutes!
Minus the time spent coloring & fussy cutting my Sassy Studio Designs image.

Remember to come join in the fun at our Dies R Us Challenge Blog!
A new challenge on the 1st and 15th of each month.
I hope you'll come join us!!
Have a fabulous weekend!!

As always . . .
