For A Friend

Happy news, I'm in the DT for the Sweet Stampin' Challenge, wohooo! This week the challenge is For A Friend and the sponsor is Flat Friends who are giving away 4 digis! Please check our challenge blog for all the info.

I've seen a lot of home decor ads with the cluttered oriental style, so I tried to merge it onto a CAS card! If I do like challenges?! Yup! The sentiment says in Swedish that there's nothing more precious than a true friend.

Crafty Calendar: Bingo (Embossing, Sentiment, Sparkle)
Simon Says Stamp: Use Watercolours (Distress inks)

Materials used:
Itsy Bitsy background stamped with Distress ink.
Vilda stamps sentiment stamped with Distress ink and heat embossed with extra fine clear powder.
Fabulous embellie from Itsy Bitsy.

So I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Today I'll stock for the winter by shopping gloves and wool socks, some mornings and evenings are really cold. I'll also call a friend and see if she's up for something nice.

Warm hugs and love
