Faithful Friend


Quick post this morning ... heading out of town to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. Happy Birthday, Dodger!! Can't wait to show you his silly b-day card tomorrow :D

Today's card uses a new JustRite set called Song in My Heart. What beautiful sentiments -- all four of them! Behind the sentiment is a decorative frame from JustRite's Fancy Labels cling set. I stamped it in Stampin' Up's Night of Navy ink onto ivory card stock, lightly colored in the frame with a light aqua Copic maker, and then hand-trimmed the frame. You can bet I ordered the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen Nestabilities, which coordinate with this frame -- stalking my mailman until they arrive!

I used last week's Card Positioning Systems sketch (#209) for my layout.

Have a great weekend!

Beautiful card, Amy. Happy birthday to your dad; I always love to see the cards you create for him. I especially like the monster one (with party hats) you made for your children to give him.

Both my m-i-l and f-i-l turn 70yo on May 1st. This is a big year, huh?
