Day 5: Friends in any weather!

Hi friends!
It's the final day of my weekly blog series
 "5 days of ..."

The Alphabet Game!

It's been such a fun week
and I'm already excited for the next one ahead :)

Today's card is based on letter "H!"

 This was such a happy draw for me as I have quite a few stamp sets
with this letter
and almost all of them haven't seen ink.
This darling set is by Hello Bluebird stamps and it just touched my heart 
when I saw this various social media sites during release week!

I used a background panel to create the weathered look 
with distress/oxide inks and popped the images up on the card with foam. 
I stamped the sentiment on the completed background piece
and popped up a die cut to frame it in - 
then added coordinating sequins.

 This card is part of my #kindess cards
(as per kindness being my word of the year!)
Each of the cards during this week's release
 is being sent to someone in particular!

While this rainy day card is vibrant and bright and cheerful in color,
so is she - my friend :)
We have weathered a lot together, too!

Thanks for stopping by each day!
Remember there is a prize for one lucky commenter,
and each winner will be annoucned at the end of the weekly series:  July 27th.

Thank you for your KIND and sweet words, your encouragement,
and inspiring me with each of your creations as I visit your blogs, too!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥ 


  1. This is (again) so cute! (All your cards are cute! I know what you mean about having some stamps that have NOT touched ink. I just got finished trying to use up some designer paper that I had. It really inspired me to keep going and use it up to make cards. Maybe, my next inspiration should be to put my untouched stamps in a box...and try to start using them for inspiration. (smile) (That would keep my busy for a long time!)

  2. That's a gorgeous card, kindness is so necessary! Hugs, Valerie
