Friend Card with Affection Collection

Happy TGIF stamping friends. I had a good day as when I went to work my boss came in to do payroll and she told me I only needed to work till 4: 00. I was elated. I came home and checked my email and answered all that and then decided since some people got a frost last night I would go to my neighbors to get some more tomatillos to make some more Salsa Verde. I went over there and had called Mom on my cell to check in for the day and my friend that I hadn't talked to in a while called me while I was talking to Mom so I told her I would call her back. By then I was in my car going to my neighbors. I had called him at the restaurant  he owns to make sure it was okay. So then I called my friend back and was talking to her  on my way over and we chatted awhile and I got out with my bags to pick. Well we hung up and I continued picking. I have a hooded sweatshirt on because it is cool out. I stuck my phone in my pouch. I picked a big bag of them and then I tripped and my phone must have fallen out of my pouch. Ah the sagas of my life. I get to my car and realize I do not have my phone. Crap, his garden was a mess of vines all over so I traced my steps of where I had gone. Nope couldn't find it. I go back to my car to see if I had put it in my bag and then went over to check out what their big dog was chewing on and Thank God it wasn't my phone. LOL! I put my garden gloves on and go back to the garden and move back vines all over and low and behold there it was. I was so lucky and happy. I called Mom and all she could say was oh God! Like I tell ya girl you always have so many problems.....thanks Mom for the support/. LOL! 

Okay enough on to my card. When this set came out in the holiday catalog I bought it on my first order, I have so many dear friends thanks to my Stampin' UP! business. I send out a lot of friend cards to let them know I am thinking of them and  that I appreciate them as my friend. I know exactly who I am going to send this too also. I stamped this for the FABFRIDAY challenge which was a color challenge. It was Basic Gray which is my card base and one tag and an image and the image in the corner and Designer Button, Sahara Sand which was another tag and the stamped image, then So Saffron which was my top layer of Card Stock  and I died the white Bakers Twine to match with just inking up a sponge and pulling my twine under my sponge. I used the color spritzer also with my Basic Gray Marker to add some dimension to the card and then sponged the edges in the Sahara Sand ink. to me I am not to crazy about the color combo but I guess my card turned out cute.

Here are the details:
Stamp Set: Affection Collection
Card Stock: Basic Gray, So Saffron, Sahara Sand
Inks: Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Basic Gray ink pad and marker
Tools and Accessories: Color Spritzer Tool, Natural Designer Buttons, Bakers Twine, Mini  Glue Dots, Stapler.
