Friend to Friend

I needed a quick card today and found this beauty by AJ (Willosmama). I love the simplicity and decided to CASE (copy and share everything) it! Here is my version with a few changes. I grabbed DSP from my scrap stash of some old retired papers, used Pocket Silhouettes stamp set and made mine square. I also added the detail of the perforation around the top and sides just to balance it a little more since my stamp is not quite to scale like AJ's is. This was done with the perforation tool on the Cutter Kit which I've almost never used until now... I think I'm liking the possibility!

OH, I almost forgot that I won a contest on yesterday! Shelli Gardner is the CEO/founder of Stampin' Up! and hosts a challenge on her blog each month. I try to enter each time just for fun, and honest-to-goodness, she picked my card this time! Although I'm not exactly sure which one since I posted a link to a huge assortment of SAB projects I've done. Anyway, THANKS SHELLI and a big HI to everyone stopping by my blog via Shelli's contest page!

Thanks for looking today! And thanks for all the well wishes. I'm afraid I'm still under the weather with this nasty headcold. Since we've all had it in my family we're down to only one box of tissues left to share which is NOT GOOD! Everytime someone sneezes I hear "where is the kleenex box?!?" and it's usually me yelling it! Speaking of empty tissue boxes, here's a handy TIP: use an empty tissue box (I like the small rectangle ones that stand upright) on your stampin' table for small scraps of trash! Very handy- I save them all the time and once they are full then it goes in the trash can. Now I've got plenty of empties! You could even decorate them so they are pretty if you want- but they come in so many fun colors now that I don't bother.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
