Two Great Friends



Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! :) I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. It's going to be near 80 degrees here today and tomorrow so we're heading out to enjoy the beautiful weather.

For my card today, I decided to ink up this beautiful image from Rubber Romance, Julia. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink and colored it with copics. It's hard to tell in the picture, but I added Diamond Glaze to the coffee cup. Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4, out of SU's Apricot Appeal. I then layered Certainly Celery on top of that followed by my design paper from Debbie Mumm. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and Pearls. The sentiment is from MFT. It's a pretty simple card, and I definitely used colors outside my comfort zone, but I'm pleased with how it turned out :) What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'll hopefully be back tomorrow with another project if the nice weather doesn't distract me too much :)

Big Hugs, Christine :)

We are having lovely weather over here in Norway too, 70 degrees - that's unusual this early in the year. I've spent all day outside working in the garden, it feels great!
