A Friend Reaches for your Hand....

April 5, 2011

....and touches your heart.  That is the sentiment of my card today, and I think it is just beautiful.  Happy Tuesday, everyone!  I hope that you had a wonderful weekend!  My blog has been quiet, because we had a very full and busy weekend.  It was a lot of fun though- spending time with friends, attending a BBQ on Saturday, having a BBQ and a great night of games on Sunday.  It was fabulous!  But that means that I haven't had much time to sit down and create anything...so I finally had a chance! Yay!

My card today is for Stamper's Dream, and is also my card for CPS Sketch #212 this week.  It also features a new collection from Glitz Design that I don't reach for as often...though I totally should!  I feature Laced with Grace and Afternoon Muse a lot, but I have been neglecting "Love Games"...until today!  Here it is in all its fabulous glory:
"A Friend Reaches for your Hand..." supplies
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (red) 
Paper/Paper Layers/Jewels: Glitz Design (Love Games: Scorecard, Polka)
Stamps: JustRite Stampers (Friendship Nested Sentiments set) & Glitz Design (Love Games set)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) & Clearsnap (Chalk: charcoal) 
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold red cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners and ink the edges of a scorecard paper block, and adhere to the bottom of the card.  Ink the edges of a paper layer strip, and adhere to the top.  Stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner and accent with jewels and a black flower.  Stamp the banners to polka dot paper, and cut out.  Thread twine through them and adhere over the seam of the two papers on the card front.  Accent each end with a twine bow, and add a flower center.  Add a red jewel to each banner flag to finish. 

Well, that is all I have to share with you today.  I hope that you have a wonderful day, and thanks for checking out my little piece of the internet!!  ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
