My dear friend, Amy, and I decided to do a little project together. We decided to take turns picking the project, and as often as once or twice a week we would get together via Face Time on our iphones and we would craft together making cards. Since it was my idea, I got to pick first. I chose the Mojo Monday card sketch #279 for our project. And the only other stipulation was that we had to use paper from either the "Love" or "With Love" 6x6 paper pads from Recollections sold at Michael's. Other than those two rules, we could do whatever we wanted. We were also to make two cards, with at least one of the two needed to be the sketch and the second one could be from the sketch or anything we wanted to do using our scraps. We also promised to mail each other one of our two cards as a keepsake.
I picked my papers from one of the pads, I matted them onto Certainly Celery cardstock by Stampin' Up and put them all on a Pure Poppy cardstock from Papertrey Ink. My main image was a pre-colored digi stamp from Pink Cat Studios named "Betty Ladybug on Flower", you can view the image here. The sentiment stamp was from MFT, "You Make My Day" set, click here. The ribbon was from Hobby Lobby, and I used the Sizzix Oval Dies to cut out and frame the main image.
I think this idea was a great activity for two long distance friends. She lives in Texas and I live in Minnesota, so weekend get togethers to craft are pretty much out of the question. I had a great time and I can't wait to see what she picks for us to do next.
