Best Wishes

Happy Thursday my blogger friends, hope you are all having a great week. As Kathya mentioned in one of her last posts, about two weeks ago, I went to Tampa to visit her.  It was Kathya's gift for my birthday and I LOVED it!!  As always, we had a blast, but this time we did something special, we sat down and worked together, which is very rare because we live so far away from each other. 

We decided to create a card using the same image but different color combos, papers and embellishments.  I just finished my card and want to share it with you.  The stamp is Tilda with balloon, it was colored with Copics. The papers are from We are memory Keepers and Heidi Grace.  The pearls, ribbon and metal embellishments are from my stash.

Hugs, Ivonne

Happy Birthday, Ivonne!

Last week was Ivonne's birthday, and this past weekend she came to Florida to my home for a visit.  What a great weekend we had!  We went shopping to a local scrapbook store, and out to eat a couple of times.  As usual, when we are together we laughed most of the time. It is such a blessing to have a friend like her, who means the world to me and my family.

In preparation for her special day, I purchased a stamp a few months ago. Without further ado, here is the card I made with it for her.

Detail of stamp:
Ivonne: You are more than a friend to me. I hope you had a great birthday! With love... Kathya

This card was created using stamp from: I Break For Stamps "Best Friends - Back View"; Paper: cardstock DCWV - "The Lace & Linen Stack"; DP  and stickers by: basicgrey "Plumeria". Flowers and pearls are from my stash. This image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with copic markers.
