Friends Never Fade

I actually found a few minutes to make a card. That happens far too rarely these days for me. I'm frantically working on my swaps for the Stampin' Up Convention next week too. The blackberries, corn and tomatoes are coming in so I've been busy not only in the garden but also in the kitchen. I really need a clone! Of course, I'd stick her in the kitchen and I'd head to the stamp room!

Speaking of my stamp room, when I'm busy like this my desk (and right now my chair) get buried in all kinds of paper, ribbon and other goodies. The busier I am the worse my stamp room gets. Right now I have been taking my stamps and supplies out to the kitchen table to work on my projects. My 7 year old grandson spent the night with us last night and he followed me into the stamp room to get something this morning. He looked around and said "If every room in your house looked like this you could get on America's Messiest Homes". I didn't know such a show existed but I'm afraid he is right. My stamp room is in dire need of help! I reckon it will have to wait till after convention though.

I love the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. I brayered some Tempting Turquoise ink over one side of the embossing folder and placed a square of Whisper White paper in it to get the background for this card. I really like the way it turned out. Then it was as simple as layering it on a piece of Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise cardstock, Tying 2 lengths of ribbon around it, stamping the image from Friends Never Fade in Pumpkin Pie and mounting it above the ribbons with Stampin' Dimensionals. I'm sure you will see a few more cards made with the Friends Never Fade set here very soon.
