Friend Card and New Stamp Sneak Peeks!!

Happy Monday, everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!! I was at a resort the last few days and couldn't get an internet connection (gasp!!) I didn't plan ahead and have posts ready to go, thinking I could just write them up when I got there. This may be the longest I've gone since I started my blog in not posting. I was having serious withdrawal :(


I have a card to share with you today that I made for a dear friend who is always the first to offer enthusiastic encouragement, genuine kindness and unwavering support. I wanted to let her know how much her friendship means to me :)


The papers are from Bo Bunny's Garden Girl stack. Aren't they beautiful?? All of the gems are from The Paper Studio, the organza ribbon is from Michaels and the button and fiber from my stash.


The base of the card is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Square, with a Grand Square on top. I used a Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle for the next layer, and then I layered Edgeabilites Ric Rac along the bottom, alternating purple and green.


The base of the tag is a Nestabilities Label 20, and I hooked Parisian Accents dies over the top and bottom. The tag is a Fancy Tag One and I used a coordinating stamp from Stamping Scrapping for the border. "Friend" is from K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes stamp set:


Have you seen the newest K Andrew Designs stamps, available for preorder??!!


The first one is Guy Talk for the guys in our life!! Father's Day is right around the corner, and this set is full of great Mix and Match sentiments to create endless fun and cool sayings for that great guy in your life (hubby, boyfriend, dad, son, friend, uncle, etc). This is a larger set...aren't the sentiments awesome??!!


And next is Southern Sayings!! I love the sentiments on this one, and I'm not even Southern :) This is also Mix and Match so the sayings can be used for endless sentiments. It is also a larger set.

And TODAY is the LAST DAY to get FREE shipping on these preorders if you order them and any other sets with it. As long as you order ONE Of these new preorders, your entire order ships free when they arrive. They will be here no later than the 24th of May with an expected ship date to you of the 26th!!

I hope you had a nice time away. Maybe a break with no internet was just what you needed...or maybe not? I really like this card, I think I need to get some Spellbinders. I am amazed every time you use them.

Oh wow! Lisa this is really beautiful:)) I adore the colors. That green just pops, and gives a great balance. You are just so great and talented. Your friend will be so blessed and will love receiving this card.

I was happy to hear you got some down time. We all need to do that once in awhile, especially if we are as busy as you are. Always take time for yourself.

My sweet friend, it is a small miracle that I tore my eyes away from this gorgeous card long enough to leave you a comment. :o) The twinkling sparkles and vibrant hues make an exquisite friendship card... friends make our hearts sparkle and color our lives with all things beautiful. :o) The papers are stunning, as are your layers of yummy Spellbinders. Your friend will treasure this forever! (I say that every time you tell us you made a card for someone, but it's true! Your masterpieces are meant to be eternally cherished.)

Welcome home, my friend! When I go this amount of time between posts I'm ecstatic at the frequency.. le sigh. One day! ;) So happy to have you and your creative spirit back! (And don't make me wallop you about the sewing thing. You are fabulous and there's nothing wrong if your lines decide to be free-form. It ups the creativity!) :o)

Hugs and blessings!

Stunning! Ok...you have to take a picture (or two) of all your Spellbinders and send it to me. I am so fascinated with your collection. When I go look at them I just can't decide. I did get a gift card for Mother's Day from my son and I am buying one or two.
