Friendship Grows…

I was determined to make a card again today. This adorable image came last week in the midst of my heat wave. Why have I suddenly taken a liking to stamps that don’t have a face? Well, technically Magnolias have a face, just not a complete one. This cutie is a relatively new one by Sarah Kay for Stampavie. I ordered a new Christmas image at Stampers Dream and the website told me that people who bought that particular one also bought this gardener. So in my shopping cart she went.


The challenge today at 365 Cards was to use denim. I pulled out my old patterned paper and found this piece. I began by stamping the image on a piece of GinaK paper that was cut with my Small Label nestie. I then stamped the image again on the pp and carefully cut out the overalls and glued it onto the image. The rest of the image was colored with my Copics. I sponged the edges with Tea Dye distress ink. The background papers are from Basic Grey Indian Summer pack. The sentiment is by Stampabilities that is supposed to go with a House Mouse image, but I inked it up into two lines so it would fit my card. The flowers are from Petaloo and are called Wild Roses. I would love to have some of these IRL. A bit of silk ribbon is across the top and it is hard to see in the photo but there is a snippit of pale pink ribbon in the knot.

Tomorrow is our 1st annual Chili Cook Off at work so it will be a long day. I will catch up with you on Friday.


  1. Such a cute image. I can see why it ended up in your cart!! Very cute card! And i would love to hear about your cook off. I am in charge of the annual party at our church and am just plain stumped as to how we can make it fun. I need pointers!! I'm sure your chili is fantastic!
