FRIENDS FOREVER

                        Hi Everyone:

           Welcome back. Today I made a card that reminds me
of my Mom. I love the books by Beatrix Potter. Peter Rabbit was my favorite.
            It would be cold and snowy, mom would have hot chocolate waiting for my brother and I, after a good old fashion snowball fight. We would run into her arms and there would be hugs for everyone. She was the best!!


             When  Crafter's Companion  came out with these wonderful stamps, I was so happy. They have the entire set.
The set I used today is called  A Winter's Tale . They are so sweet.

              I started out stamping peter and his mom on white paper. Then the little snow flakes. I colored them in with copic markers. Then found a little stamp with the friends and scroll work. I used vera mark and mixed blue and silver embossing powder, and the heat gun. The card is made from my favorite paper, yes you guessed it,parchment. Specialty Paper's Plus  has a great selection of paper. This paper works so well with the Ultimate Tool by Crafter' Companion. Parchment paper folds well and is very strong, no white centers to show through. There is a great coupon to the right, just put in the code "HAPPYHOLIDAYS"  when you check out and you will get 10% off the parchment paper order. They also have a great deal on shipping.
                 The theme this month is friendship.   There are so many wonderful entries. If you would like to take a look go to the Crafter's Companion Blog. The prize this month is from the Humpfrey Collection.  They are the  so cute. Take a look.

                                      
I know they are a little small. Go over to Humphrey-EZMount-Stamp-Set-Bundle  and see all the amazing stamps.

                       Come join the fun. Make a project and enter.
Wouldn't you love to have these cute little stamps?

                         Here is my card.
