Spring Friendship Card

Good afternoon everyone,

It's the Blog Hogger again.  I am not my usual bubbly self today.  You know why?  It 'cause last night was Card Ladies night.

You see, every two weeks five of us friends get together to make cards.  Usually we have a wonderful, laugh-filled time, while making some beautiful cards!  However, last night only three of us could attend and as soon as my two "friends" came into my house they went into rhapsodies over Kathy's Easter card.

With a huge smile on my face, I proudly displayed the re-make of the card I'd made for Kathy.  You know, the one that helped me win the non-existent Making-The-Best-Easter-Card contest.  Anyway, both of their reactions were identical . . . a very lukewarm "Nice".  You know what this means, don't you?

No, no, no!  It doesn't mean that I concede defeat . . . again!  That would be silly and such an overreaction!  It means I need to get some new friends!!!  lol

Anyway, here's a card I CASEd from a card I saw at  I think I may give it to one of my other friends, one who really appreciates me!  lol

And here's a picture from the top, so you can see how it opens.

I used Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue, Chocolate chip and Very Vanilla cardstock.  The images on the front are from the Thoughts & Prayers and Spring Song stamp sets, and the Bashful Blue ribbon is attached to one of the pieces from Hodgepodge Hardware.

The fold was easy to do.  You just cut your cardstock at 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Then score the front in half at 2 3/4".

Friendly hugs,


  1. Where is the curley little thing from? It is very cool. is it on the paper or did you punch it or use a die to get it? I think this is just lovely. I would be your friend if I lived there because I love to make card and I love the BAy!

  2. It's from the Hodgepodge Hardware kit. It's metal and like a curly paper clip. Unfortunately, Stampin' Up no longer sells the kits. You can still get them from the Clearance Rack, tho'. If you live in Canada, please click on the "Order Stampin' Up Online" button at the top left-hand side of this blog. If you don't live in Canada, you'll need to contact a demonstrator in your country. Hope this helps, Katherine

  3. Hmmm, I hope my friends notice how easy it would be for me to make new friends! lol

    Thanks for the questions. I see Kathy has already responded.


  4. I happen to have been the lucky friend who got this card! It is even more beautiful in real life! Thanks, Colleen!
