Birthday for a Friend

I have a friend who about a year ago, we had some problems. We have recently worked them out and have become quite close. I have really enjoyed her friendship. Her birthday was in November and I decided to make her a stationary set. I got the template off of Papertrey Ink and made her this set, which she really liked. It is always unnerving to give someone something that you have worked hard on and hope that they like it. But I do think she liked it and it made me want to make more. I used the Birds of a Feather stamp set, Kraft Cardstock from Papertrey and various different patterned papers that I had.

Let me know what you think.

I know the pictures aren't the greatest sorry!

Gift for a friend

WOW! It has been awhile, sorry about that, however I know that you are patient and kind when it comes to me not posting new stuff. Life is crazy and with DH being layed off and me working more hours, still going to school, and regular home life, things have just gotten away from me! Any whoozers, here is a gift I made for a friend's birthday. She really liked it and I had a lot of fun making it.

I got the template for the holder from Papertrey Ink I love their stamps and now they have started with these templates that you can purchase and download for like $5 and it comes with a whole bunch of ideas and instructions. Very, very exciting!!!

Anyway here it is.

The stamp set is Birds of a Feather, CS is Kraft from Papertrey, PP is Cosmo Cricket, Ribbon is Papertrey Ink and I colored the 3D flower with my Copics and added a little bit of bling to the center of the flower.
