True Friend


Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful morning...I am still in my pj's and have been playing in the craft room all morning!!!! The dishes are still sitting in the sink and the Christmas decorations in various stages of breakdown are scattered all over the house but I chose to ignore all that ...yea me!!!! I'll feel guilty later...LOL!!!!

I made a card for Wendy's Free 4 all challenge on Splitcoast to Pay It Forward...make a card for a friend and send it off today. I made this card for a friend who has been going through a rough time lately so this challenge hit the spot!!! This is also for PTI's Make It Monday challenge ....the project must use at least one Papertrey product and mulit-layered images from a simple stamp..

The medallion stamp from the Simple Little Things set was first stamped with Coastal Cabana. Then the same stamp was stamped with Old Olive and Coastal Cabana on scrap white card stock, the layers were cutout, and adhered to the base medallion with dimensionals and glue dots. Pearls were added to the centers. This is very CAS but I think it will work. 

Well, friends...I guess I better mend my wicked ways and get to work!!! Have a wonderful weekend and try to do something fun!!!!
