Friends Forever

A couple of years ago, I purchased some Crafty Secrets sheets of vintage images for a few bucks each.  I was loathe to cut into them, and hoarded them.  When I was organizing my attic studio, they were unearthed and I thought, "Oh, yeah!  I forgot about these!"

In an "Aha!" moment recently, I thought about photocopying those images, thus stretching their use.  Duh!  Here's one of the images on this card:


I used some cereal box chipboard to punch a heart, then covered it in beautiful champagne glitter from Stampin' Up!


Have a wonderful day, and I'm so glad you stopped by.

I have some image sheets like this and I just don't get around to using them. I think I'm hoarding them. This is gorgeous beyond words. I really need to learn to color like this. Such a beautiful card! That chunky glittered heart is a fabulous addition.
