Best Friends Forever






Hello again ~ This is my second post for today...This week's Cue Card at CASology is 'Friend', and for the Less is More challenge, the theme happens to be 'Friends'! Being the challenge junkie that I am, I couldn't resist playing along, so I grabbed my Mama Elephant stamps and dies, and got busy. Here is my card:




I can't get enough of the cute kids from the 'In My Heart' set, so I chose this little boy, stamped him twice and colored their outfits in opposite colors with Copic markers. The embossed background was created with PTI's Sunrise Impression Plate I, and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant's 'Honey Bunny'. 

PS: Thanks to Gillian and Sarah for their suggestion, I would like to also join in the challenge at Uniko Studios Blog for the theme Love & Friendship. I don't have any of their stamps...'yet', but I have seen some really gorgeous creations using them all over blogland :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and for all of your lovely comments...I really appreciate it ~

Such a sweet card, love the sunburst behind the kids, and the sense of movement from the hillside. Nicely done Barb.
