More Splendid Friends

I made a few more cards today with the newly released FRIENDS FOREVER set from Pink Poison/Splendid Little Company : ) ! This is the stamp set that Marie will be giving away tomorrow for the Splendid Spree Giveaway!! More sets to be given away as the Spree continues all this month.

I used some fun new DP called Holiday Treasures and pulled out my Jumbo Pewter Eyelets. I haven't used those for a while, I almost forgot how much I like them : ) !! I added some wonderful Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon. It's my favorite new ribbon...LOVE it!! I had fun with this just sort of evolved as the card came together. Most of my layouts are fairly simple. I really went wild on this one, lol ; ) !
Here's a close-up of the girls...the blonde girl on the right has Fun Flock (Carmel latte tan) on her sweater...isn't that fun? Makes it looks fuzzy like a sweater! I tried to give each girl a little different texture on their sweater. Oh how I love to color! And adding glitter, gloss & fun, fun & more fun.
I decided this would make a great Christmas card for a special friend, so I used another newly released set, Christmas Birds, for the sentiment on the inside...And here's my second card (back to a simple layout)...trying out more fall color combos, this one's More Mustard & Bravo Burgundy. The girl on the right reminds me of candy corn, lol! I added a little Cropadile embossing on those bottom scallops (you can double click on the photo to get a closer look). It's a fun & easy way to add a little texture. I did a brief tutorial last year on Cropadile embossing, if you haven't tried yet, just click HERE to see how it's done. That reminds me, I guess I'm coming up on my 1 year blogaversary...we're gonna need to celebrate : ) !!!

And here's the inside of the card....friends...forever : ) ~
