Warmed by Your Friendship!

artsy-em was the featured stamper this week over on Split Coast and her put on your party dress card inspired me to create this card. I used different colors and stamps but kept the general theme and sketch.


I bought this dress form die from PTI a few months ago and have been wanting to use it (New Year's resolution to USE my stuff!!!) and I also just got these great Circa 1934 papers from Cosmo Cricket. I paper pieced the 'form' part of the dress form! I sponged the edges of the circle and the sentiment with Ranger Antique Linen ink.


My sentiment is from Blessed by You and frame stamp is from Fancy Phrases both are from Waltzingmouse A perfect sentiment for this 'temps in the single digits' cold and snowy week in New England!!

I'll be back tomorrow with my card for the Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch - I hope you can stop by and check it out!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Fancy Phrases, Blessed by You
Paper: Vintage cream - PTI, riding hood red - SU, DP Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934/Astaire & Chaplin
Ink: Riding Hood Red - SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Antique Linen
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, dress form die - PTI, Blending tool & non stick craft mat - Ranger
