To A Dear Friend

Hello and Welcome!!

It's been a crazy week for me. And now, to top it all off, I have acquired a head cold! Yuck! Just enough sneezing, sniffling and blowing to interrupt whatever you are doing!

I did manage to make a Valentine for a very dear senior friend of mine. She is from New York and has taken beautifully to our mountains. Even works with animals every day to help out on the ranch where she lives. I only hope I have half her energy if I make it to her age!

I started with a Kraft card base and layered the background with a piece from a wonderful vintage bag. I added varigated rick rack down the sides. The heart and the sentiment are stamped with SU PinkPassion and heat embossed with clear powder. I went over the images with Antique Linen ink to age the paper a little. The cut out images are then layered onto pink card stock. The last layer is more Kraft stock. These are raised on dimensionals. I sponged all the edges with SU Positively Pink. I really like the vintage feel of this card and I think my friend will, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope your week is going well! Come back by when you can and be sure to leave a comment to let me know you were here. It is such a joy to hear from you and I love the return visits to your blogs!! The weekend will be here soon...so, hang in there!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
