Grateful For Friends


Happy Friday, everyone!  Today I'm joining in with Unity's Friends With Flair blog hop and the Paper Players sketch challenge.  This is such a versatile sketch and very classic with the centrally placed image.  This Best Friends Itty Bitty was part of a prize package and the sentiment is from the September 2011 Kit of the Month.  I created the frame with some Nestabilities and then stamped over it in white with the Bit of Burlap background stamp from Market Street Stamps (which seems to have been retired as I can't find it!).  

Any big plans for the weekend?  We have a bajillion errands to run tomorrow and then I'm hoping we'll spend some more time with our new friend Netflix in the evening!  Hope your day is lovely!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Best Friends Itty Bitty, Sentiment from Sept '11 KOM - All Seasons) Unity Stamp Co, (Bit of Burlap) Market Street Stamps
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Cherry Cobbler) Stampin' Up, (Fresh Snow) Papertrey Ink
Dies:  (Nesties Labels Twelve ) Spellbinders

OK, I know I forget to use Bit of Burlap, but RETIRED? That's a sin. That stamp is SO PERFECT. I really love the texty girl - and how fun is the sentiment?
