Hello Friend with Authentique "Journey" Collection and A Giveaway!!!!!!

Hello Friend - it has been a few days since I have placed anything on my blog but my life has been going crazy. My husband and I saw a house last week, fell in love with it and decided to buy it a few days later, with that being said it also means that my honey will be retiring so like I said things here has been a bit crazy. In the days to come I will be sharing some photos of our new/old fixer upper home we fell in love with.

My card that I designed came about because not only did we buy this house but I decided to participate in a "Friend" card exchange. I used the Tim Holtz Rosette for my flower and all of the paper is the Authentique "Journey" Collection that was sent to me for the layout that I posted last week, how sweet is that.

I used a couple of different sentiment stamps to make my tag. The "Hello" comes from the Inkadinkado Chelsea Sentiments Stamp Set and the "Friends" comes from Hero Arts Friends Stamp Set. My twine is from Whisker Graphic (I won this spool from Whisker Graphics and definitely will be getting more). I added the Tim Holtz Hinge Clips to give my card some added detail, along with inking all of the edges with Chestnut Roan ink and adding a blue gemstones to the center of my rosette.

See all of my beautiful cards that I made for the exchange, 15 to be exact. I hope you enjoy my sweet creation for today my dear friends. Please leave a comment, your email and become a follower I will send you a pair of them as a thank you. Have a fabulous day.
