The Joy of Friendship

When I first started paper crafting I took some classes led by a creative, positive lady.  That was over 9 years ago.  I really enjoy my card making and am grateful for the help and encouragement of the lady who first got me started.  She and I became friends and we have been through several adventurous projects together.  She owns her own digital stamp company called Diane's Daydream Designs.  She is a talented illustrator and business woman.  I'm also proud to call Diane Noble my friend.  The card I made today has an image from the Let It Snow color set available in her store.  22 digital images for $5.00!!!

I printed the snow mama and child on white cardstock and cut it out.  I used some background papers from Echo Park Wintertime to make a funky scene.  I dotted some white glue on the snow section and randomly covered it with tiny silver crystals.  A pretty white flocked ribbon runs down the side with teal matte brad snowflakes accents.


I used one of the Friendship Collection Sentiments on the front and matted it to stand out.

What a joy to have you for a friend Diane!

For the inside of the card, I chose another sentiment from the Friendship Collection and matted it with some matching paper.

Diane and I don't have the opportunity to get together as much as we used to but we still keep in touch, especially with each other's blogs.  Please check out Diane's store.  I'm sure you will find lots of fun and pretty images you can use in your projects.

Thanks for stopping in.

  1. Oh, you are a sweetheart, Vicki! We've had some great times. Nine years ago...really? Amazing! We really should do lunch or breakfast soon and catch up. It's been too long. I'm still recuperating from my fall and injuries. In a wheelchair or on crutches. But would love to try to get together. Would love to know what is happening in your life now. Thank you for this very sweet and totally generous shout out. Your card is adorable!!! I'm having a design team call right now! Hmmmm.... ;)
