Try It Out Tuesday # 6 - Plant Seeds of Friendship

I've learned a lot about friendship today. I spent a great afternoon with my friend Lynn at one of our local craft stores. Did we have a great time! Then I got to spend some time with my cyber friends and how good that was for my soul. And in between, I got the chance to play with some more of Anki's Sweethearts, the new line of stamps from Susana's store. I think it's appropriate that I had decided my next project was going to be a seed packet!

Suzanne, our fearless Design Team Leader, tasked us with doing anything but a card for our For our Try It Out Tuesday for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I fell in love with Julia with flowers and I knew I wanted to do something with a garden for her. I found the greatest place for a template for seed packets, cut it out and used my nestibilities oval to cut out the front of the packet. I covered it with acetate and glued the sides together. I used velcro for the back of the card to hold it closed. I love how she turned out. She made me smile after a pretty trying evening. Here's a copy of the back of the packet.

Make sure to stop by the store's Design Team Blog, Follow Your Heart, and check out what my other talented team members have done with these great stamps. The stamp so clear and crisp and are just down right fun to create with.

Enjoy the projects and remember to always plant seeds of friendship wherever you go. Those buds turn into beautiful flowers and friends that can last a lifetime.

Card Ingredients: Julia with Flowers by Anki's Sweethearts, Bella Baubles in Lilac, Bazzil Flowers, Copics, Distressed Stickles in Worn Lipstick, acetate sheets.
