GDP077 For A Friend

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  My card today is for a friend who's going through a rough patch; it uses the colors from the Global Design Project this week:

My "free choice" color was Soft Sky; I chose Jar of Love to create a paper bouquet for her!

 I stamped some of the florals on my Soft Sky card base in Craft White ink; it's very soft and pretty, although it's hard to see here.  This might be the first time I've used the background stamp Writing Notes...I stamped it in Soft Sky to replicate a piece of notebook paper and stamped my image on top.  The florals were stamped on Thick White cardstock, which diecuts beautifully!  I arranged them in my "jar" and added some water, stems and some little flying critters!  To continue in the notebook paper them, I added a paperclip and some baker's twine, then scattered a few sequins for fun!

I had a little piece of scrap notebook paper left from the front, so I stamped my sentiment on it and added another white spring behind it on the inside.

 It's also my sweet friend Sandy's 70th birthday today....I hope I look as good as she does when I am that age!  She is beautiful inside and out!  I added some fun embellishments to February's Paper Pumpkin card for her:

Some numbers, a couple of stamped hearts and some stitched ribbon on the outside, and here's the inside:

These are so cute, and I love the font in the sentiments!!!

Cassidy wanted to try out a fruit smoothie, so we got some strawberries, blueberries, milk and yogur:

Whirled it all up with the immersion blender and added some whipped cream!  It was delish!

Thanks so much for popping in today!  Have a blessed day!

Yummy on Cassidy's smoothie! They are very good for you and a great way to get a variety of fruit into you! Love them! :)

Gorgeous card, LeAnne! I love your beautiful bouquet and the background stamping looks fantastic. The Writing Notes background was a great idea and the clip & twine were the perfect addition to it! Cassidy is on her way to becoming a chef! I see a Food Network show in her future!!

Loving your beautiful card! I purchased the Jar of Love Set when I signed on with Stampin' Up! back in August. I have yet to create a card with it! Your project is really inspirational and I will be creating something soon!!! Thanks for sharing your brilliance.
