Always Time For Friendship

 Here's a sweet and simple card featuring this trio image available in the I Brake For Stamps store! To create my colorful band, I simply masked off the rest of the white cardstock piece with post it notes. Then, I sponged three different colors of Distress Ink into the open panel.  To finish the card off, I added a sentiment from this sheet. I matted the image piece on black and then onto a mustard colored card base. So easy!! 

Don't forget to say Hi Dee Ho to Ms. Della when you stop in the store!  You can save with my coupon code SAVE10JANE--Have fun!

Move Your Point of View Around.....

First of all....can I say, Suzi Blu is back at Unity Stamps!!??  If you haven't been a fan or plugged in, this may not seem like exclamation point kinda news, but for's HUGE!!  Years ago, I fell in love with these whimsical images, bought them, and, sadly, stored them for quite some time.  A while ago, I stepped into the world of mixed media--something of a rebirth.  I dug out my Suzi girls and guy and made a few things.  I continued to search for similarly awesome, but fresh and new....

A week or so ago, Unity Stamp Co. announced that Suzi was coming back as a stamp designer.  I'm thrilled!  And, I'm excited to see what is going to come about from this new partnership!

This is a canvas I made for one of my daughter's friends.  She's got the travel bug--hence the going places theme.  To complete the canvas, I've used a great skyline image from Hambo stamps, a few grunge images from Tim Holtz, my Suzi Blu girls from Unity Stamp Co and an awesome sentiment from Stamper's Anonymous.  The sentiment reads:

"everything happens for a reason.  it's just a matter of moving your point of view around until you see it."

Ever try that?  It kinda works, if you can get over yourself long enough to move your point of view....y'know?
