Season of friendship

I was lamenting the other day that Stampin' Up! didn't have any little stamps to make a faux quilt style card with. Then I happened upon a fellow bloggers challenge gal and she had a card that used these little fellows from the Season of Friendship stamp. I was so excited! I don't know how I missed them! My card base is Always Artichoke with a felt ribbon wrapped around it. The ribbon is fairly thick so instead of tying it I used a bit of linen thread and tied a bow around it. I used my 1-1/4" square punch to punch out nine squares of whisper white cardstock and then stamped the images on them. I used More mustard, pacific point, ridinghood red, and kiwi kiss for my images. The saying is actually longer than these squares so I stamped it and then cut it apart and layered it onto some white cardstock. I thought it was a pretty fun and easy card.
In other news, my sweetie is on a trip and I am missing him already. I hate it when he is gone! I hate it when anyone is gone from my family. It feels like there is a big gaping hole where they should be. I have a feeling I'm not going to weather the empty nest thing very well. Thankfully, I have a few years til I have to deal with it. Maybe my kids will get really irritating before then....I doubt it! I have awesome kids!
