FRIENDSHIP

I made this card with a special friend in mind! She is always there for me, and I just love her to death so I wanted to send her a card to let her know that I am thinking about her! I love this bird and I am so very happy that the Always stamp set will be around for another year - it is one of my all-time favorites because it is so beautiful and there is so much you can do with it! So, I see more workshops in the future with this beauty! This card is pretty self-explanatory so I will leave you with the recipe and if you do have a question, send me an email and I will answer it when I get back! I am pretty sure I am floating around on my raft right now with a good book in my hand - LOL! Don't forget to leave me a comment letting me know you came by so I can enter you in the drawing for the Coconutty gift certificate! Toodles!

Card Recipe:
Paper - Kraft , Naturals White, and Not Quite Navy card stock, Porcelain Prints Designer Series paper
Stamps - Always
Inks - Not Quite Navy classic stampin' pad

Hi Alex. I like the monochromatic look of your card. I hope you are having fun floating around on your houseboat!

What was the book you were reading while floating? I have never read while relaxing like this. I guess I was too afraid that I would get the book wet. lol
