My friend

Quick post - I'm a in a rush this morning! ;)

I saw Heather's challenge a couple days ago, and since I was in need of inspiration, decided to give it a go.
I also saw my friend Dana was having a challenge (stamp on your patterned paper), so I decided to try that as well. :) And one last challenge - the Moxie Fab cameo challenge.

So I did this bright, colorful card, and then decided I also wanted to do a pastel, muted card...I love both color styles, and just can't make up my mind which I like best!

For the tag, I cut it out, punched the little bits on the side with a mini hole punch, drew the tag design, and stamped the sentiment. The sentiment is actually goes "thanks for being my friend", but all I wanted was "my friend", so I masked off the rest.

Isn't the blue paper pretty? My sweet friend Rona sent it to me a long time ago along with some other yummy goodies. :)

More masking for this tags sentiment....

Like I said, quick post!
Thanks so much for all the super sweet comments and for dropping in today!
