a message for you...

A wonderful friend of mine sent me a birthday gift ('member I turned 40 in May?!) that was right up my stampin' alley! Well, I'm finally getting around to making a thank you card for her, and of course I couldn't just pick one out of my dusty card stash, I had to make somethin' brand spankin' new! You see, there are times that I can be a bit naive when it comes to the stamping world, whether it be intentional or not, but this friend of mine is always watchin' my back, throwin' me a bone here and there, and cheering me on from the sidelines (actually, she's pretty much the quarterback with me on the sidelines waitin' to be put in the game). She's true blue, AND...she deserves a card designed just for her!

I happen to know that my friend likes bright colors, and I think she has been using this Girl Friday paper from Cosmo Cricket, so I'm guessing she likes it, right?! Here's where it all comes together: while blurfing last night, I came across another of Heather Nichols/Pinefeather signature pocket cards and decided I just had to make one as my TY card. Here she is, folks.

Card highlights include:
  • paper pieced leaves using the cover sheet from the Cosmo paper pack
  • buttons tied with twine from PTI
  • Crystal Effects on my birdie
  • fun stamps from My Cute Stamps
  • button tied ribbon tab on insert (Pine's idea)
Thanks for stopping by today!
