friends never fade

Hey there!  How are you guys doing so far this week?  Well, in Southern CA, summer finally decided to show up yesterday.  It got to 92 degrees in Burbank, where I work, and it was a balmy 80 degrees by the beach.  We're gettting such a late start here with the warm weather...very strange!  Anyway, today, I have a card I created for a swap that showcases more fun new products.  I am having such a great time playing with my new stamps and accessories - I just wish I had more time to create!  How do you like the little snippet of the card up top?  Notice those pretty little pearls?  I LOVE these embellies.  They come in a variety of sizes - from teenie tiny to about a quarter inch in diameter.  They're very cool and you get 150 of these in an assortment of sizes.  Wanna see my full card?
I have to say I think this DSP pack is just gorgeous.  It's called Greenhouse Gala and all the prints are beautiful.  These colors also scream summertime to me too, and it makes me smile :)  I also decided to create a circle card, which I think is a fun alternative to the standard sized card.  I used the Scallop Circle Bigz die and the Clear Circle Bigz die for the center.  The Big Shot makes these types of cards so easy to put together!  Here's the card recipe for you:
{Friends Never Fade}
*Stamp Set: Friends Never Fade
*Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Greenhouse Gala DSP
*Inks: Pumpkin Pie
*Accessories: Scallop Circle and Clear Circle Bigz dies, Basic Pearls, Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon
Hope you have a fantastic day!

I love your quote it is so true. Friends definitely never fade. The yellow flower is the amazing part of that card.
