Rainy weekend

On Friday it was our first 100 degree day this year. By yesteday it was 45 degrees! Welcome to Utah!! Its still cold and cloudy today but it should be warming up again later in the week.

One of the best ways for me to spend a rainy afternoon is in my craftroom making a card. I didn’t really think about it when I chose which stamp set I was going to use, but I guess I was missing the sunshine!

This card was made using the “Every day is a picnic” stamp set from MFT. I also used their “Spring Whimsy” 6×6 paper pad.

I started by stamping the images on Neenah 80lb cardstock and colored them with copic markers. I cut the images with the coordinating dies. I then cut a heart using recollections heart die set. I also cut a 2″ strip of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment on that.

I then layered the papers and sentiment strip and then adhered the images using art glitter glue. I glued it all to an A2 sized card base and we were done.

Here is a list of some of the items I used in making this card.

Friendship

One of the benefits of people staying home more than usual is that some of us have spare

time that they didn’t have before.  My best friend in Scotland is usually so busy that we don’t have much time to talk, but in the last few weeks we’ve found that we’ve been calling each other more than we have in a long time.  Don’t get me wrong, we have always stayed in touch, its just that the calls are more frequent now, and I’m grateful for that. 

So this card reminds me of friendship and I am so grateful for my best friend who has been in my life since I was 17 years old.  Even though we are thousands of miles apart, I know that she is there whenever I need her. 

This is a stamp set from MFT called Magical friends.  I stamped the images and colored them with alcohol markers.  For the background I used the MFT mini cloud edge stencil with Distress Oxide inks in broken china.  I cut the grass with the Honey Bee Stamps grass border die and added dimension to one layer with 3M foam tape.  I hope you like it!
