It's a Sweet Thing, Friendship.....

Hi there, everyone: Like the title says, Friendship is so sweet and I've made a lot of dear, amazing friends through this wonderful hobby so, I have a card today celebrating Friendships all around the World.

This image is from Arts Impressions and it's called Coffee BFF's.
I stamped this image on a piece of Canson Mix Media paper, this paper is thinner than the regular watercolor paper thus easier to fussy cut, which is what I did after I colored these gals with SU markers. The spaces under the stools were cut with an Exacto Knife.
The pattern paper is from my stash from Lili of the Valley, (discontinued), the sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Seaside Life".
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from another old Flourishes set called "Gerbera Daisies" and it's my favorite sentiment for Friendship cards, the words are truly beautiful.
The two little butterfly friends are from this set.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments always make my day.


  1. How cute is this card !!! Love that sentiment on the inside .
    How skilled you are at FUSSY CUTTING ,my dear !! You actually cut out the legs of the bar stools with an exacto knife !!! WOW !

  2. This card is so sweet inside and out!

    Maria, I think you just left a comment on my blog about the Hero Arts cat stamp. (I accidentally deleted the comment, sorry!)
    Anyhow, the catalog you want to look at is their new 45th anniversary catalog, not the regular 2019 one.

    I believe that is the link, and it is page 32.

    Hope that helps!

  3. I love all the Art Impressions stamps like this. There's something for absolutely every life situation and they're so cute and fun to color. This one is perfect for the friendship challenge and you have the perfect sentiments. Beautiful job coloring and cutting!
