Okay, a little inspiration! Finally! I got an order from Art Gone Wild today. So Happy! Got some new Suzy Toronto stamps, and can’t wait to color on one. Anyway, I did this little card today. I got this Girlfriends stamp from Stamping Bella - Best Friends Forevah! I was stumped on colors, but figure these worked out okay. This is a tri-fold card. Started with a 12" piece of off white cardstock which is 4-1/2" wide. I scored at 3-1/2" and at 7-3/4" and folded it in. As you can see, I put two eyelets on the large fold in at the bottom and ran pink grosgrain ribbon through it and tied it. There is a piece of SU DP, ½" across the bottom of the front flap, and I rounded the corners on it. The “I just love you” sentiment is from SU Double Line Doodle. The flower is an actual artificial flower cut from a stem and I placed a paper flower in the center with a Queen & Co brad. There is a little rhinestone on the flower center on the pigtailed friend’s dress. The friends are colored with colored pencils. On the first flap on the inside, there is a sentiment from a TAC stamp set, which I cannot remember the name of the set. On the final open of the card, the sentiment stamp is again from TAC. I hope you can read them from the pictures. The sentiments are so good.

Check out Art Gone Wild’s web site: http://www.agwstamps.com/new.htm. Because I ordered a large order, I got a catalog free. Plus, with the catalog they sent along all kinds of leaflets of different stamps. I will be a week going through all the stamps in these books, but I’m so excited. There are some of the cutest stamps in these books. This place will be getting a lot of my husband’s hard earned money, I’m afraid to say. Okay, I will calm myself down from my excitement and just say that I’m so happy to have a little inspiration back today.

Thanks for praying for me! I heard from the doctor today and I’m having an ultrasound in the morning on my upper thigh/hip area. I like that promptness. Well, hope everyone has a wonderful evening, and will stop back! Happy Stamping!
