Friday Flashback: Friends Never Fade

Well, my dogs are now in the air on their way to Texas...I already miss them so much!  But we'll soldier on with this week's Friday Flashback.  Today's featured stamp set is Friends Never Fade.  It's one of the bazillion flower stamp sets I have (even though I just got two more yesterday but we talked about that).  So let's go!

Also features Full of Life

So I got that photo corner punch because I kept seeing other people do fantastic things with it and I. Can't. Make. It. Work. on my projects.  It always looks like an afterthought, rather than an intentional part of the design.  Bleargh.  But that color combo is pretty fun, I like that.

Yeeeeaahhh, this was my only other project with Friends Never Fade; I stamped the index card for the Splitcoast gallery.  So not one of my more favorite floral stamp sets?  But I did make something new!

If you look in the top right corner, those are not Candy Dots--I broke into my stash of totally neglected brads!  I used to use brads pretty frequently but then they came out with the Candy Dots and those are the coolest things since Betty White, so now I have lots and lots of brads in my stash.  I'm not going through the Candy Dots super-fast though because I think my natural craft supply hoarding tendencies are working. 

Anywha, I used this week's ColourQ challenge:

If you're wondering, I used Calypso Coral to shade the petals on the flower, so really all the colors are on there.  Plus Early Espresso.

I also used this week's sketch from Unscripted, been a long time since I played along with them:

That's it for me this week, peeps.  Have a great weekend!

LOVE that dress!!! Ha! I do like the first card a lot -- the colors, and I do not feel that the photo corner punch LOOKS like an afterthought.

Looking forward to seeing the dogs tonight and we'll call you just as soon as we hit the door at home. Love you!
