Better with a friend

Good morning... any big plans for the upcoming weekend?

I'll be working so nothing too exciting lined up on my schedule. But it's all good, 'cause as long as all this cold and snow stick around it's not like I feel like doing a whole lot of adventuring or anything.
In fact, I was quite content to continue cleaning/organizing the crafty room yesterday and couldn't have been happier... I'm finding things that I completely forgot I had, so it is like little presents popping up all around me, LOL! Yet with all those papers and goodies what did I reach for to inspire this card? Packaging left over from some Prima flowers! I thought it was too pretty to throw away so onto the card it went. Then when I was looking through my stamps for something to go with it I came across my Kettos and this cute little duo caught my eye. It had been a while since I colored up any Kettos so these gals were really speaking to me. I wonder if Stamping Bella will ever release any new Kettos? I know I would love to see a few new additions to that line. Anyone out there heard anything?

Well, I suppose I should go get ready for the day. Have a good one my fellow stampers, I hope you find some time to get crafty this weekend. :) Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper- Prima packaging
stamps- Stamping Bella (Ketto Yoko & Ono), Hero Arts (sentiment)

what a beautiful card! I don't blame you for not throwing that packaging away. I just pulled out some Kettos myself, then went hunting around Stamping Bella to see if she had anything new... doesn't look like it.
