Welcome back and Happy Sunday Everyone!
On this VERY COLD weekend (single digits at night and teens during the day) I decided I needed to make something that would 'brighten' my day and 'warm me up'. So when I saw the YELLOW challenge over on the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge blog, I knew that was exactly what I was looking for. Enduring these covid striken winter months has made me really miss my local friends so I think I'll make a couple 'happy cards' and send them in the mail as a surprise. Just to let them know I'm thinking of them.
With my friends in mind, I'd also like to join in the Time Out Challenge . Their theme is a Friends Quote and you can use anything within the quote that inspires you. I've gone with 'Friend' and 'Flowers'.
OH and as I began thinking about my design I remembered the Daring Cardmaker Challenge where they want you to keep it 'In The Frame'
The dies used for my framing are a set by Penny Black called 'Elegant Stitching' (51-440). I've die cut the two largest dies to create the 'frame'.
My focus flowers come from a January 2021 Hero Arts kit called Flowers & Bees. I've used both the stamps and dies today. Sorry this kit is no longer available.
My sentiment are from two different companies ... sentiment in the upper left corner is a stamp from Rubbernecker called 'Good Friends' (642-13) and the sentiments in the lower right corner are from the Simon Says Stamps set called 'Friendly Flowers'.
The flowers were colored using Tombow markers and the corner embellishments are Nuvo 'dandelion yellow' crystal drops.
I think I'll write a message inside and have this ready for Mr. Postman tomorrow. I know exactly who would really appreciate hearing from me right now ... it's been toooooo long since we've last spoken.
Have a wonderful day and please stay safe/healthy!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and as always . . .
