You Make Me Ridiculously Happy, My Lovely Friends

Yes, you! Today’s card is in honor of all of you who support my small stamping business. I am so appreciative, anI’m sure I don’t say it enough. I used the Lovely Friends bundle to create this card with pop up laurel and banner.

I’m sorry I’ve missed posting a few days this week. Tonight my husband and I host our annual Halloween party, and this week has seen a whirlwind of activity getting prepared for it. Hubby’s been out of town so my sister and some friends have been helping me. Our theme this year is Hollywood. Here’s just a little sneak peek:

  • Flirty Flamingo CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″

Stamped with the Lovely Friends stamp set:

  • sentiment and dots in Flirty Flamingo ink onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • leaves in Old Olive ink around the edges of the Whisper White CS layer
  • small flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS (two step stamp: stamped off for lighter layer)
  • inside sentiment onto the die cut banner

Die cut using the Lovely Laurel Thinlits:

  • two laurel pieces from a scrap of Old Olive CS
  • two banner pieces from a scrap of Whisper White CS
