Long Time Friend

Today is the birthday of a long time friend of mine. I thought this card was perfect to send her not just because of the name of the set, but also because she is really into gardening. I had to dig (no pun intended, ha!) into my stash of already stamped images from this set to find this one of the basket and pots because I didn't purchase this set. I know!...what was I thinking!? Long Time Friend is on my list of sets I should have purchased, but for some reason did not. Oh well, at least I have a few images left, plus I know a few people who probably wouldn't mind if I borrowed theirs. ;-) Anyways...I'm sure you didn't come here to listen to me whine, now did you?

There's not a whole lot to describe as far as how I created this card...just stamped the image with Basic Brown and watercolored with my re-inkers and aquapainter. I had a strip of designer paper left from the retired Spring Flowers collection that went perfect with the colors I used so I added that. Hey, it pays to re-organize the stamp area every so often...I found all sorts of good things I had forgotten about!

Stamps: Long Time Friend, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Fine Lace background
Ink: Basic Brown, Mellow Moss
Card stock: Mellow Moss, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Spring Flowers
Accessories: Pewter Hodge Podge, Mellow Moss grosgrain

Have a great day! I'll be busy making pies for tomorrows feast!
