a farewell

On Saturday night, a friend of mine took a flight back home, and we don’t know when we will meet again, so I thought it was a perfect time to make her a card to say goodbye with. I will miss her dearly!

I made her a little bookmark (die: Half & Half from PTI) that was tucked into the envelope cut from Seed Packet die, also from PTI, and parchment paper. We are both fans of the HBO TV series Game of Thrones, and bought the book set together, so I hope she finds this handy for reading with.

To make the card even more personalised, I stamped her nickname inside (Quinn’s ABCs from Lawn Fawn), along with a monkey (SU!)!

Other supplies:
Patterned paper (Webster’s Pages); Turning a New Leaf die, Double-ended Banners, Spiral Notebook Page, Soft Stone cardstock (PTI); Vintage Photo Distress ink; Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); glitter chipboard heart (Melissa Frances); Divine Twine; Live, Laugh, Love stamp (SU!);

I’ve also gotten into the CHRISTMAS mood! It’s way too early, and I don’t even celebrate Christmas- but I recently bought some Paper Smooches stamps with super CUTE!!! snowmen!!

Eee! I want snow! These snowmen were coloured with Faber Castell watercolour pencils (because I’m too poor for Copics LOL) and a water brush thingy (that has a water reservoir… I forgot the brand)

Other supplies:
Mat Stack 5 die, Woodgrain Impression Plate, Heart die (PTI), Gold Embossing Powder (Ranger) – just a note I don’t like this- it leaves dust on light cardstock, you can even see it here on the darker CS -_-; Basic Grey patterned paper

I hope this makes up for my previous crappy post LOL. Thanks for visiting! Leave me your URL so I can visit you too! ❤
