After the past post, I decided it was time to go back to visiting my serious self with stamping today! I love this Friends 24-7 SU stamp set and have turned to it a few times...that damask single stamp keeps bringing me back! The damask was stamped in soft sky, then the bird was overstamped in black. It is easier to see if you click on the picture...this gives such an elegant feel to a card, I think!
Today was Featured stamper at SCS, and that was the momentum I needed to stamp this birthday card for a very good friend I've had since 8th grade. I just visited her home in Dallas a couple of months ago, and it was so cool to look out her family room window and see a variety of birds that are new to me. I even spotted a cardinal, it was gorgeous, but I don't have a cardinal stamp. Anyway, her love of birds also inspired this card, and the inside saying is a really cool font to pair with flourishes. It should say, "keeping friends" rather than "making friends..." but I went with what the stamp said. I hope you like my creation today, and that you have a special friend you've had for years in your life. My friend, Geri and I have known each other for 39 years, hard to believe!
Have a wonderful day, thanks for coming by to visit~
