Old Friends

An 'old' friend gave me this sentiment stamp as part of my Christmas present ... didn't she do well!  We've been friends for over 25 years (where does the time go?!) and I must confess to have had a tear in my eye when I saw this.  Soppy old sod!

When I saw Laurie's beautiful card over at the Muse challenge, I thought I'd have a go, though my card seems to be more of a CASE than inspiration! ;)
I masked off my sentiment so I could stamp it in two portions.  I don't have a sunburst die, so made my own by cutting a large scalloped circle and then snipping bits out of it. I also managed to use some washi tape from my stash {gasp} and my new red enamel bling which I'm loving :)

There isn't a smudge in the middle of 'friends' on my card ... I've a dirty mark on the inside of my camera lens. Grrr.

PS Don't forget about the High Hopes hop tomorrow ... there's 3 lots of candy to be won!

You made such a pretty sunbeam, Lynne, and that is a great sentiment. Let the tears flow. :-)

I wish I could remember to use my Washi tape. Maybe one day soon.
