A Friend FMS #116

December 12, 2013

The day got away from me yesterday and I never got to enter my craft room.  I am beginning to panic wondering when I am going to get all the things done I need or want to do.  I received a great gift yesterday from Stampin' Up!  It was my pre-order of the new things from the "Celebrate the Everyday" Catalog that will be available to everyone on Jan. 3.  I want every item in the catalog!  It is my Santa wish list!!!!  I absolutely LOVE the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper.  I am using it in my card today for Freshly Made Sketches.  I Know all my "Purdue" friends will love the colors.  (GO HOOSIERS!   Cream and Crimson, Forever!) 

Narelle's  sketch is so awesome and I was able to use my new pennant punch, too.  I hope you enjoy my card today.  It is a perfect card for a special friend! 


I left the inside blank for writing a personal note this time.  I really like to include hand written messages in cards.  I feel it is a dying art.  That makes me so sad because there is nothing like receiving a special message in the mail!
