Friendship Stays

I've some to the conclusion that I am a "cute card" person, and I think I'm ok with that. I love Fluffles, and House Mouse and Elzybells and Magnolia Tilda stamps. I'm crazy over Lucky & Lulu and Riley the Moose and the Happy Hoppers and Gruffies. I like Ellen Hutson's flowers in vases, and little kleenex boxes, and I'm crazy about Penny Black Hedgies and Mice. I "oooh" and "aahhh" over my friends' creations with beautiful solid flowers and elegant classy cards and projects, but I have a hard time making them myself. I guess that's what makes this such a fun and diverse craft. We all have our niche. We just have to find it and be happy there!!

I colored today's card with Prismacolors and oms, and used up a small piece of retired Stampin' Up! DP to mat my image. The flowers in the background were stamped with Rose Red and then I colored some of them with a light pink prismacolor to give them the "bleached" look. I like it! No smells, and I don't have to worry about bleach spots on my clothes!! (Don't ask....)

Have a wonderful day. Hope you take time to drop a note to a friend this week!

Just adorable! I have decided that I am a cute card stamper as well and I'm perfectly happy that way. I love Fluffles and you did an excellent job with him/her.
