A Gift for a Friend!

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Saturday!!! I wanted to share a little something I have been working on. When I went to Virginia a few weeks ago, my friends mom went CRAZY over my cards. She called one of her friends and they picked out a bunch of cards and made me take money...LOL!!! She had asked me that she would LOVE a set of note cards. If I ever had the chance she would love a set. She didn't tell me exactly what she wanted so I took it upon myself to think of something she LOVES. She loves her doggie Toby a sweet little pug.....When I was at the stamping convention last week I went on a hunt to find a pug image. Guess what I found it...WOOHOO!!!! So here is the set of note cards I came up with for her. I hope she loves them!!!

I wanted to keep them simple for her, so it would be easy to mail. They also have matching Kraft envies and I stamped a cute little paw print on the inside!!!! Hope you enjoy and have my fingers crossed she will LOVE them!! Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!!!!

Here's the Recipe

  • Image - Stamping Sensations - stamped in Momento Ink and Colored with Prisma Pencils and Gamsol. Also cut out and popped up....Paw Print was a 1.00 stamp, stamped in Stazon Ink
  • Sentiment - Stamping Sensations - stamped in Stazon Ink
  • Paper - Kraft, Pomergrante, Teal Cardstock
  • Accessories - Black Pearls, Basic Black Ribbon, Nesties
