Hanging with a friend

I have some time to think about my friends and how important they are and the ones that have not talked to in a while. I decided to give them a call. I am going to have lunch this week with one of my friends that I have not seen in a while. Looking forward to that. I decided to make her a card too to remember the nice day.

Folding card

I hope that you are feeling better. I just made this folding card. I did make a spiral pop up card too. The pcx didn't come out very well. So, I will stick

with this one. My base card is 5 x 10 1/2, and scored at the 1 1/2 inch mark and then 2 1/2, 4 1/4, 6, 8 1/4 inch marks. I layered in on a piece of cardstock. I used the new set from Kim Hughes - comforting hugs. I just love this set. I then used the copic mkrs and colored them all in and cut them out of my cs and adhered them to the folds. The sentiment is popped. You can't see it in the picture. I sponged the background to blend. Very cute. The back side of the folds are blank to write stuff. Hee! Hee! Enjoy. I had so much fun with this card

Cindy Haffner just informed me that I won that challenge and have a $5.00 off my next purchase at MFT. Can't wait to use it. I really want to get the snowment sharing the scarf. I am going to make my xmas cards out of that one I think. Anyways. Very Cool and Thank you.

Celebrate life

I saw a similar card on Cammies blog. I just loved the colors and the layout. I don't really card/stamp lift but this was so beautiful. I am also going to make one for a sympathy for a girl at work. She came home from work and found her husband. Gone! Poof. I am sure at that moment that she found him.... OMG! I can't imagine That poor girl. I don't know what I could ever do for her except be there for her. Anyways I will make the card that we can pass around work and take up a collection for her and her family.... How sad.
