Friends Are Like Flowers

Another trip to the scrap box. I love using Prima flowers and luckily I had some that matched the background flowers on the patterned paper. I used some Sizzix die cuts to make the friends word but after I glued them on thought it looked more like fiends.

Oh well-fiends...friends...sometimes they are the same thing right?

I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks on this card. I have all the colors and am amazed at how two different colors can go so well together. I used Shabby Shutters and Scattered Straw.

This card is larger than the normal A2 size I love so much because I had to make sure I could get the whole word on it. I normally shy away from larger cards or square ones because of the added postage or not having an envelope to fit. I topped this off with Stickles. I think I might try this a little different next time by lining the word to have a shadow effect and then placing a crystal in the flowers instead. Another thought would be the plaid green paper being ribbon or fabric. I love my scrap stash!!


  1. Lovely card! I just ordered those Tim Holtz distressing powders...don't have a clue how to use them...maybe you can tell me. Thanks for visiting my blog...I will visit yours again too! : )

    OK, who am I kidding (but we need at least one just to make it respectable...)?!?

  4. Hi Jan,

    i really like your card. Also, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I wasn;t sure if your question abotu how to get listed war rhetorical or not, so I thought I would just post an answer -- hope that's OK. To get listed yoyu need to register your blog at Right now there are 281 registered sites. Once you are registered, your site ranking pretty much depends on the number of hits/page views your blog gets. So some people who are great stampers an have a lot of people visit their blogs experience a meteorically fast rise in the rankings and others, like me, just hope to stay in the top 200. HTH.

Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
