Too Busy for Girlfriends?

This day and age we are all so busy and alot of the time just don't have time for anything extra! I think that also includes our friends. Today I am going to share a couple of cards that would be great to send to a friend just to say Hi!


When we get something in the mail....the actual mail....not email, doesn't it just make you feel good? Especially something handmade! Sometimes these little notes are a pick-me-up, just letting you know you are note alone!
Here are 2 super simple but fun cards that would be easy to share!


This card is super easy to make. I layered the brown cardstock with Kraft CS. Stamped the image, cut it out, distressed the edges with Burnt Umber and attached it to the card. I used my paper piercing tool around the heart and added the sentiment!

For this card I have some pictures below of how I stamped the scalloped border! So easy to layer with Kraft CS and then the Brown CS and a riboon!

Here is picture of how I did it. I used TAC's Forever Family stamp set. Lining up the heart, I just stamped several time until I had an even border.

And here is the end result!

Friends are a gift from God. We all need them! So make a card today and send it to a friend to let him or her know you are thinking of them! Here is a great article to read about being Too Busy for Girlfriends! This is an online magazine that I get by email! Great articles to read and good reminders for us all!
