Friends Are A Blessing!!!

Each one of you and so many more who don't even know I have a blog, or who have time to stop by - each friend is TRULY a blessing and dear to me!

If I could I would make each one of you an individualized set of stationery! We made new friends this week who came over to encourage us. As a little gift, I wanted to make a card and simple set of stationery. And I used the latest autumn set/kit from Gina K. Designs! Yippeeee!

Ok, made a boo boo smearing the sentiment ink. At first the card was taped off with Post It Note tape so that the sentiment would have the middle white space. VersaFine says it "dries fast" and well, it didn't this time. Last night my heat tool broke (argh, argh ARGH) and let this air dry. It smeared. I cut a strip of white card stock and inked the edges in Delicata Gold, restamped the sentiment, cut Fun Foam and used Scor Tape to adhere this new strip to the card :/  Boo boos...

Stamp Set: Gina K. Designs "Autumn Wishes" and American Crafts "Marian" alphabet
Inks: VersaFine "Onyx Black," "Sepia Brown," SU "Pear Pizzazz," "Certainly Celery," "Baked Brown Sugar," "Cherry Cobbler," and "Crushed Curry" and Delicata "Golden Glitz"
Memento Marker: Bamboo, Cantaloupe, London Fog, Lady Bug, Desert Sand (thumped the tree)
Wink of Stella Clear (on the berries)
Cardstock: Neenah Solar White
Fun Foam, white; Scor Tape
Envelopes: Desktop Publishing Supplies #57960-100 *** Are you always looking for quality, inexpensive envelopes? See below.

*** I love these envelopes - they are SMOOTH, crisp folds, not too thin, and most importantly, have a wax protective strip that you pull off when ready to use. The humidity in Hawai'i does not ruin the glue on these and no need to lick! And, they come in a sturdy storage box. I have the square back 24 lb x 100/box $8.95 ***
