My Friend

Hello friends!

I have a friendship card that I put together for no reason what-so-ever! I love those kind of projects! I didn't make this card for an assignment or for a particular person or occasion. I created just for the fun of it! Just to play!

The papers I used for this card are a mix of Crate Paper

, Echo Park

and Jillibean Soup

. I added links here to all the Two Peas in a Bucket products because they are having a FREE SHIPPING event! Gotta love that! Just use SMSFF9 from now to May 11th.

I used some of my Papertrey Ink stamps, 'Just the Ticket' and the sentiment is from 'Friendship Jars.' I also used a couple stamps from a Unity set called 'Blossom Soup'

create by Jillibean Soup.

The heart die is from My Favorite Things and I embossed it with a Quickutz embossing folder that I ran through my Big Shot. The photo corner and file tab are Quickutz dies and the tags are dies from my old faithful Sizzix. I often laugh at myself for having so many die cut machines, but hey...I use them! :)

Other tools used are my old Fiskars 'Cloud' scissors and scallop border punch

. The butterfly dies were actually included in my March Midnight Rooster kit.

I colored the stamped images with Copic

markers, inked my paper edges and added hand stitching. You may have noticed that I use a lot of crinkled and dyed seam binding? I get mine from Marilyn Healey at MemerieMare on Etsy. Her seam binding is the best! Some of the other shops don't dye their ribbon the way she does so it doesn't have the vintage look of Marilyn's. She has the best color selection and she binds hers in little bundles with text paper, craft string and old mother-of-pearl buttons! Fun!

So what will you be doing this mid week Wednesday? I started a scrapbook page last night using another fabulous digital kit from Peas. I'll probably have that to share with you tomorrow. I hope your day is the best! :) Kathy
