Friends




I just had to case a card of my friend, Pam aka pam124 at Splitcoaststampers. Again, this week we are honoring past queens. The letters to choose from this week are P-R.  My good friend, Pam, falls into this category. I wish I had time to case several cards of different stampers but I don't as I have family coming in starting today and through the weekend. I may go missing for several days after this post. The beautiful card I am case-ing is this one. Pam does such gorgeous creations.

I will also enter my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery and Inspired by Stamping IBSIC #62. The colors are brown, lt. green, and cream/white. Gosh, my green doesn't look like the photo but I am using Stampin'Up! Sage Shadow and it looked green until I went back and checked the inspiration photo. Hope this is o.k.


Have a great weekend.

Your card is lovely and so is Pam's. I know what you mean, I wish I could find more time to do the QFTD challenges...so much inspiration there.

This is so pretty! What a great case of our sweet Pamzi! Love the colors, details, papers, that pretty flower - love it all! I love that sentiment too (I made a card with that saying this weekend for a challenge - haven't posted it yet - but we both most have been channeling the same thought - fun). Hugz!!!

Dripping with elegance, Benzi! Could I have seen this on Pinterest already? I know I saw this somewhere, and gasped to myself (so as not to alarm anyone) because it is so pretty. Glad you linked it up with us at IBS!

Pam~ said...

You have been the busy stamper making some beautiful cards! I love the colors and layout you used on this card...exquisite!

Have a great day!

Angie said...

Gorgeous! I love how you have some "greenery" peeping out from the rose in the same colors as your card. I am going to tuck that idea away for future use. Love the romantic elegance of this card!

Carol (Gingerbeary8) said...

Wow!!! What a spectacular creation. I just love not all only the color combination-but those splendid rows of borders. It gets a 3 thumbs up-it is just marvelous.
Bear Hugs,
