Alpha Challenge FE - FR

There is a twist to this Alpha Challenge over at the Craft Barn.  It is the letter 'F' but must be between 'FE' and 'FR'.  I chose Friend.


As soon as I thought of the word 'Friend' I thought of this cute Lili of the Valley stamp.  I don't often use people stamps as I am not very good at colouring them but risked it cause it just seemed the perfect image!  The tree is a Lavina clear stamp, the sentiment is from the Only Words - Through the Rain Sheena Douglas unmounted set.  Forever Friends is from a clear We R Memory Keepers set called Daisy Phrases and the letters saying Friend are made using a Cuttlebug Die.  Ooh I almost forgot, the flowers are Spellbinders Cherry Blossom.  The inks used are Vintage Sepia Versafine along with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks.  The colouring is with Promarkers.  If you have time, please pop over to The Craft Barn to see the fab DT pages and all the cool entries.  Thanks loads for visiting me.  Have a wonderful weekend.  Take Care.  Christine xx

Hi Chris,

What a cute card! The stamp of the two kids on the swing is priceless!

Thanks for visiting me. The fire is 45% under control; the people that were evacuated are now allowed to return home and NM4 has been re-opened (both good signs).

Hugs,
Kay
