Hello Friend...

TGIF my friends!

It has taken me awhile to finally have a chance to ink up the darling Coffee Friends set from  Hello Bluebird but they were totally worth the wait. The set is full of cute woodland critters all enjoying a hot cuppa. As much as I love them all, this little squirrel in particular totally stole my heart and had to make it on my first card using this set. So I paired him with the sweet racoon and borrowed the fallen log from the older Skating Party set for them to both rest on. To keep the scene nice and cozy, I opted not to create a big scene filling the entire card front and instead contained it to just the top half of the card. For the bottom half I stamped the Handmade Plaid background onto teal card stock then used the E57 Copic to color in some of the stripes in the pattern. To separate the two halves of the card I wanted a decorative border so I grabbed the Gallery Frame #3 die and simply used one of its edges trimmed down to size. the large Hello Friend sentiment dies were added over top and I even grabbed a tiny speech bubble die from the Photo Stack die set to add a little heart too. I think it captures that cozy feeling as winter winds down quite nicely.  :)  

Have a good one everybody!

This is so sweet and I love the colors you have chosen. I was just thinking that I can't think of any cards you have done (and I have seen) that aren't appealing and beautifully done. Keep up the good "work".
