Friendship with Mo~

Hiya Blog Friends~

What a windy day today. I popped to my sisters, house last night and I couldn't believe all the wheelie Bins on the floor and recycling bags strewn everywhere, that's how windy it was and is! Mind you I came in from work at 11am and that's me in now, not venturing out again until Zumba in the morning.

I have had a play this afternoon, but unfortunately I have to do the dreaded ironing later on, mind you I don't really mind it, just wish I was crafting instead.

I went away for the day yesterday with my friend Angie, we called in at the craft shop we visit a few times a year. I had no intentions of spending too much money as Angie and I are off for our weekend "Craft" shopping in Harrogate in March, and we are both saving like mad for that! BUT I saw some new Martha Stewart punch round the page punches and I just couldn't help myself...I bought two!! I know, it was a bit greedy, I should have bought just one, but I did not know which one to get...Honest!!

Onto today's creation. I have chosen the theme at Totally Papercrafts who have set Friendship (always a nice one in my book!)
I have not used this Mo Manning stamp for ages, and I have always liked it, perfect for a Friendship card, don't you think? I have coloured the girls with copic markers, and cut out a circle and scalloped circle with my Nestie's.
I have used one of my new MS punches, but I should really have punched it on plain cardstock as it is very hard to see on this brown checked card. I will use it again soon and hopefully you will be able to see the lovely bubble pattern a bit better.

The blue glitter dot cardstock is by Personal Impressions (Lynsey Mason Designs) called "Snowball Blue", I bought the pink and green version of this too, very fresh looking I think. I have added a bit of blue ribbon from my stash, and I have also used the NS flower punch again. The Sentiment also by Personal Impressions isn't that curvy shape, I shaped it like that on the acrilic block so that I could follow the curve of the Nestie circle, think it looks ok!!
