Sweet Friend

My apologies for posting this a little later than I should have!  I started my sketch card last night about 8:00.  When I was finished with it, I got my camera to take pictures, only to discover that I had a dead battery!  At that point I was tired and did not want to wait for the battery to charge, and I really prefer taking my photos using natural light in the day light hours over flash at night.  I hope you think it was worth the wait.

So, all that aside, welcome to my blog and another UDI sketch challenge!  This is DSC136.  If you are hopping from blog to blog and any of the links are broken you can head over here to find the links. 

When I saw this week's sketch, I immediately thought of the new Postage Stamp Punch (#122344, $15.95) and the Pretty Postage stamp set (#123097, $8.95).  I stamped the image in Early Espresso ink and used a blender pen to add Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive to the images.  I also rotated the sketch and made the card horizontal rather than vertical.

The "sweet friend" is from an often overlooked stamp set  in the back of the catalog, "Hello, You" (#117118, $9.95) on page 183.  Here is the finished card.

Stamps:  Pretty Postage, Hello, You
Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry DSP
Inks:  Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Accessories:  blender pens, postage stamp punch, stampin' dimensionals.

Next stop is at Elizabeth's blog.  She always does beautiful work, so I know you won't be disappointed.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you have time, I love to read your comments, so share a little love if you can.  :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Oh, so worth the wait!!! I love, love, love it!!!!

  3. This is awesome, Barbara! I love the new postage stamp punch. On a random tangent, isn't it amazing when you stop to think that not so long ago, we would have had to run to the store for another roll of film, and now we just have to recharge a battery? I don't know what we'd do if we still had to depend on film! I'm with you on waiting for natural light. I'm notorious for working into the wee hours of the morning only to have to wait for the sun to come up so I can take a photo. :D

  4. This is just beautiful, Barbara! Definitely worth the wait!
