Best Friends

I am often reminded of just how blessed I am to have so many wonderful friends in my life. But there are friends, and then there are those really, really good friends that are among our best friends! Today I have a card to share with you that I made for ABC Toys & Crafts, that is perfect to send to one of those special people.

I love the patterned paper I used. It's from the Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Pastel collection. It is absolutely my favorite paper right now. This paper pad has really become my "go-to" paper; I just can't seem to stop using it, lol. To add a little more interest, I embossed it with the 5x7 Cuttlebug Kassie's Brocade embossing folder. I love that this folder is a 5x7 size! And even though I turned it sideways, the pattern worked fine anyway. The design is super pretty- it's a great embossing folder!

The cute sentiment is from the Hero Arts "Good Friends" clear stamp set. I used one of the awesome tag dies from Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two die set to stamp it on. With pearls, and a few vintage buttons I got from my stash, and some vintage lace trim, my card was soon finished and ready to send to a special friend. 

You've got a couple more days to catch the Hero arts and Spellbinders sale at ABC Toys & Crafts; it ends May 19th. So hurry on over to the store and stock up! And don't forget about our fun graduation and wedding challenge going on over at the challenge blog, too!

Wishing you blessings as always~
