Gracie Mae - A True Friend

Today's featured stamper is one of my very best friends, Grace. Grace & I met at our local scrapbook store, the Scrapbook Studio, when we took a scrapbook class together. We later ran into each other at a Stampin' Up stamp camp at which we spent the entire day together. We quickly hit it off, having the same sense of humour and dry wit. We really enjoy our time stamping together. We attended a scrapbook weekend at Wilderness Lodge last year that got a bit hairy at times, because I am orderly and Gracie is unmanaged chaos. I copped an attitude when her chaos would creep into my order. She surprised me the next morning at breakfast when she was wearing a t-shirt that said something like "keep your order out of my chaos". ROFLOL You see, we understand & love each other despite are differences! We are going on an adventure again this May when we will attend the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Buffalo. Look us up if you are there!

So, anyway, this True Friend birthday card is an example of Grace's handiwork. She found this sample in a magazine and CASE'd it. She is a very accomplished stamper and this card shows just that. Here is the recipe to CASE this yourself:

Stamp Sets: True Friend and I'm not sure from which set is the sentiment.
Papers: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Soft Sky & Blue Bayou
Inks: Certainly Celery, Soft Sky & Blue Bayou
Other: Bold Brights Brad, Blue Bayou Double-Stitched Ribbon

Thank you for sharing your card with us Gracie. Look for more featured stampin' friends in the future. For now, have a great day and Happy Stampin'! EdieB
