Friendship Card

I think there is always a time in everyone's life where they feel very down and out and need someone to be there for them. When I saw this wonderful set from Sparkle N Sprinkle I thought it had such awesome sentiments as well as great images to let someone know that you are there for them. And, even if one cannot be there in person for a friend, I know that just keeping in touch can help a great deal to perk them up. For me my greatest friend is my Lord Jesus and He is always with me when I am in a dark moment. I have to remind myself of that quite often too! And I usually feel much better then.

I did a very clean and simple design using the images on the Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Right Beside You #812. This is one of the new release sets they have out. And, I chose to do it only in black and white. I have always found black and white to be a very beautiful combination. I stamped the images and sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink on white card stock. Now these are a very wet ink so I let them dry quite awhile while I was fixing lunch this morning. Then this afternoon I die cut the front panel out using the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Borders die set.

I then added some ribbon to each corner of the design before I fastened it to the main card base of black card stock. The card was finished by adding a white panel inside.

I will be entering this in the Double D's Blog Challenge which continues their party celebration for their first birthday. This card fit the mood board theme perfectly I thought with the black and white design.

I thank all of you for visiting my blog and I hope your day is going great. We really are having lovely weather with melting snow. And, I had the beegeebies scared out of me when a big chunk of snow slid off the roof of the house. I know it sure startled me and made me pay attention. LOL

Take care and may God bless,

This card reminds me of times past when sitting on a swing and enjoying. I enjoyed it when I was six and when I was 16 and when I was twenty-six. I probably would enjoy it again... going to go find a swing, Thanks for the memories. Great card by the way...and a great trip down memory lane.

The sentiment on this card is so perfect, it needs no color. The black and white do it justice. I love your image of the tree swing as it does remind us of when we were younger and life was carefree.

The black and white is just perfect with this image! I can see why you bought the set..I think the sentiment is wonderful. Ant the gingham ribbon is so sweet!

Donna Ellis said...

Verna, I love what you have done with this set. Such a sweetness and sincerity. I like the way you tied the ribbon - the knot is placed perfectly. It is always a deep blessedness, a deep peaceful love, that we know we are never alone. It's a sacred delightedness to feel the special Presence with us every moment of the day. Loving you, de

This tugs at my heartstrings. You've illustrated one good reason for sending hand stamped cards. When I receive a card out of the blue, for no reason at all, I feel very special that I was in that person's thoughts and heart. What a lovely place to be. This is the most wonderful image and sentiment combination. Thanks for playing along with us at Double D, Verna. It's always good to see you.

Judy Woodland said...

This is such a stunning card! Beautiful silhouette scene you have created with the gorgeous image. The gingham ribbon and bow are just perfect!
Thanks for sharing with us at Double "D" Challenge.

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
