Friday Evening

Why does it seem like the work week drags out forever but time just flies when you are off. It doesn't seem like it should be Friday vacation week has passed way too quickly.

I have made some cards getting my inspiration from projects shown in the Close to My Heart 2002-2003 Idea Book.

For this card I stamped the Close to My Heart large single rose several times on a mottled beige card stock and colored it. Then topped it with velum. The sentiment was done on the computer and printed on parchment paper. My challenge in doing this card was getting the edges of the parchment paper torn.

For these two cards, I stamped "thanks" randomly on a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock. Since there was enough of the stamped cardstock for two cards, I figured waste not, want not so I went ahead and made the second card. The first card has grosgrain ribbon and silk flowers. On the second card I used some felt flower embellishments that I got at Michaels.

Luck, love and laughter,

Very nice! I like how you stamped the Thanks randomly around the cardstock

I'm totally going to steal the idea for the "thanks" cards. I just got my 11 thanks stamps yesterday so I'm ready to start making some thank yous!

Wonderful cards Judy! The torn parchment is great. I really like the 2nd one! The cluster of flowers where the ribbons cross is really fantastic! Great job!
