Friends...

Friday, I love you!  It's the first day of February... all about Love!

It's going to be a busy day at work but Fridays are always special.   It's like a unique feeling of knowing the weekend just started... in my mind... all day...

Tonight we'll get together with a friend.  We plan to chat and catch up on a lot of things that have happened the last several months.  We hope we can serve to give her hope, support and solidarity.  She said she needs that.  It's a long story... just life.

I have to confess I started making another different card with a "thank you" sentiment to post today but I didn't like the result... and a different feeling was in my mind.  I was thinking on tonight's encounter. I wanted to use worn colors, go vintage, ink the edges, go with an old look... but with a little bit of bright to create contrast and to stand out this sentiment I used, that goes with what I just explained about my friend...  Here's what I came out with...


These two stamps are from different kits from Unity Stamp Co.  The sentiment is from the "Time for friends and wine" kit.  The image stamp?... I don't know.*  I think it is from former KOM.




Don't forget to leave a comment because when available in the morning, I will link this post to the Friday's Friends with Flair... You could win good stuff!

I hope you enjoy my card and somehow get inspired...  Please, get some time to be imperfect this weekend... Have fun!




*I confess I have some Unity stamps that I am not sure if they are part of a KOM or any other collection because I have acquired them through prizes or bundles... I will have to check on all past kits to classify them... I just feel they are all mixed and it doesn't feel right... What would be the fastest way to do it?  Any ideas?

Eek, I have no idea about the sorting issue - but I do wish you good luck! It sounds like quite the job.
I think that sentiment is AWESOME & it goes so perfectly with the image. Just a great card. And I so love how you've signed off - time to be imperfect!! :)
