Birthday Bestie

Yesterday was my birthday. Today is my best friend’s birthday! August birthdays (a day apart) are just one thing we have in common. This friend of mine is one-of-a-kind and so talented at so many things! If you aren’t familiar with her blog, you really should go check it out! She’s the reason I’m stamping today!  While you’re there, go ahead and wish her a very happy birthday!  She’ll be so surprised!  Aren’t we all so grateful for our friends who walk through life with us?  I know I don’t tell them enough how much I appreciate them!

Stamps:  STAMPlorations (Trendy Butterflies, Grateful Beyond Words)

I sponged the chevron design using a stencil.  The butterfly was stamped, fussy cut and spritzed with my favorite sprays (Heidi Swapp – Color Shine).  The sentiment was stamped in black ink and then three gemstones were added to finish off the design.

I’m linking this up to the STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge!

In other exciting news, I’m a Featured Designer over at Paper Crafter’s Library today, so you’ll want to go see what I’m sharing over there!  Coffee and cameras, anyone?!

Have a great Thursday!
