This weeks topic was chosen by the lovely and super talented Tonya of StampHappens.com. Tonya is not only our fearless leader but she is a VERY talented stamp artist. Be sure to make a special stop by her blog to see her creation this week.
For our challenge this week Tonya wants us to focus on our BFF’s or on Jake and Bella’s unique friendship. She said:
Craft Challenge: Make a project celebrating your best friend. Or Jake and Bella’s friendship.
Comment Challenge: Do you have a best friend whom you love passionately (in a friendship kind of way)? What makes your friendship so special?
On to my project this week. This week I branched out a bit and went a new direction. Something I’ve not done for any of the challenges so far… CARDS!! I know!! You are shocked. Me too!! And I loved doing it. It’s so addictive. I stuck with some simple stamped designs and some fun paper.
This card set is for my friend Rose. We’ve been friends since about the second week of college. She was my roommate’s friends roommate. In that freshman year struggle to make friends we frequently ran into each other and really hit it off. Eventually we ended up moving in together and were roommates on and off all through college and even after college… well until she ditched me for more important things like moving to PA and getting married. Details, details.
Right now she lives in about 8 hours away and even though it’s a long way we still manage to keep in touch. She’s been with me through just about everything. She was my matron of honor, she was who I called when Ben was born, when Dad died and just about any other time the world crashes on me. She’s also who I call/text/email when I need a good giggle or a little girl talk.
So Rose this card set is for you.
I started out going one direction with the birds and the tree but then I saw the fun word stamps and I decided I would to sort of a mixed set. The paper pack is from Michael’s as are the stamps. I used the Martha Stewart border punch that Stephanie told me about (which I LOVE) and good old colored pencils to distress the edges and color the tree/birds.
