Love Life

This one went out to a very long time on line cardmaking friend from my group.  Isn't it amazing how you can get to know someone so much that you feel like you have met them but have never seen them in person.  That is what the internet has done for us, I just so enjoy the friendships I have made through groups and my blog.

Stephanie is back to having her Roses of Inspiration link up, you can check out what everyone is up to HERE ON HER BLOG . It's nice to have Stephanie back to posting, not only for her link up but all her other wonderful and inspiring posts she does :)



I added a small piece of foam adhesive behind the gate latch to give it a little dimension, and added a bird on the trellis.  Looking at it now I realize I forgot to add a fence on either side, oh my.... she has already received it so too late now.  I shaped the flowers with a stylus on a foam pad.

Taylored Expressions -- Garden Arbor & gate and Arbor Accessories dies
Fiskars -- cloud punch
Memory box - bird die ?
Stamps of life -- minis 4 circles sentiment stamp
WeRmemory keepers -- Anthologie paper
Pearl Pen -- bronze (flower centers)

Hope your week is off to a great start!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and sharing your thoughts,

Connie

Such a sweet card in celebration of your friendship with your blogging friend. You know, I wouldn't have noticed the 'missing' side fences if you hadn't have mentioned it; my eyes were being delighted with your gate and pretty flowers winding their way through the arch.

So cute! I've seen doors and gates standing alone in gardens, so why not on your card! I didn't even notice, tee hee! I, too, have enjoyed my online stamping friends, who certainly are very real. Some I have had the pleasure of meeting up with in person.
