Close-Knit Friends....CPS 252

Good morning!

I want to take just a moment to wish our DD a very, very Happy Birthday!  DD, if you are reading, we hope that your day today is filled with blessings!  We love you very much.

Well...I'm sure that you are all too busy doing that weekend 'happy dance' to be out blurfing, but just in case you happen by, I have a fun card to share with you.  I promise this will be a very short post!  I saw this sketch yesterday at CPS, 


and immediately thought of this stamp set, and the A muse gingham CS. 

Supplies: DCWV Black CS, A muse Gingham CS, Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury White CS, Gina K. Designs, "Close-Knit Friends" stamp set, Copic Markers, Stampin'Up! Ticket Punch,  Zig Pen (faux stitching), dimensional foam (Hobby Lobby).
I am normally very freaked out by the thought of making a CAS card, but I think this one actually turned out pretty cute!  My dear mom used to crochet, and used to have such pretty yarns!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Patti J.
