Last year, my dear friend, Laura, loaned me a basket full of rubber stamps. There were many fabulous stamps in the basket, but one of my favorites had to be a sentiment from All Night Media – The best gifts are tied with heartstrings. Unfortunately, when Laura’s job was eliminated and I was no longer going to get to see her every day at the office, I felt that I should return the basket of stamps. I still miss hearing her infectious laugh around the office. But, I was thrilled when on a quick trip to my local Michaels, I saw the stamp in the clearance bin. Needless to say, I grabbed it immediately. I just haven’t had the opportunity to use it, at least not until today.
And, here is the inside of the card with the sentiment stamp:
Sorry about the shadows, but it is difficult to get a good photo of the inside of a card.
I made this card for two different challenges:
* Card Patterns – Sketch #71
* House Mouse and Friends – Challenge #73 – Happy Birthday
When I started out, I had every intention of using my HM Birthday Cupcake stamp, but as I was working on the card, my mind wandered, as it frequently does, and I decided to change things up. I love this Beary Good Friends image and thought that it went so well with the sentiment. What do you think?
