For Carole…

Claudia_Rosa_Caroles friendship card_1
how blessed am I to be able to travel this year to all those places and I am so excited as of today as I am writing this posting to know already a few people I know for sure I can meet. It is even more exciting to sit here and think who else from the blogging community I might be able to meet in person. OMG!!! THIS IS INSANE!!!

I have made this card to give to my dear friend Carole.. who has been a really good friend of mine since I started to blog. Carole is going to travel just to meet me to Sir Stampalot. I told her I might shed a tear or two when I finally get to see her in person.

I hope she is going to like this card. Since I can give it to her by hand I thought it would be okay to have the tags stick over the 6x6 card base. Usually keep everything inside that perimeter.. its already hard enough to mail those kind of cards with all the high flower embellishments on them.

For my card I used
Magnolia Design Paper forget me not floral – MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE – I have only 2 sheets and I want to stock up on it while I am in the UK
blue kitchen cloth and world map paper
Tilda with anchor
Cat tails, Sandcastle
Dies: So Wrapped Lovely, Tag
Sentiment front: Stampin up, Sentiment inside: created by my very talented friend Tammi – they might become soon available in Rubber through Little Darlings. Please contact Angie Hunt if you are interested. The more email she gets, the more likely she she will have them made into rubber!
