Time Out with a CASology Circle ... of Friends

 

I am grateful, and blessed, that my circle of friends has grown to include many from all corners of the world - this blogging world has indeed given me such a gift. 

It is a friend in Pennsylvania that I had in mind as I created my card for CASology's Week 165: Circles, and the Time Out Challenge, where we're CASEing Tracey McNeely.

Here is Tracey's sweet card to CASE:
[She must know by now that I cannot resist a slip of vellum!]

 

And here is my version of it, using a sentiment from the Mondo Magnolia set Tracey also used, and my favorite die-cut flowers from SSS Watercolor Friendly Flowers:

Inside sentiment:
"Among my circle of friends, you are the one
that I can always count on for a smile. 
I hope today to bring a smile to your face when I say ...
I'm thinking of you."
 
Brenda L., you are in my thoughts, and indeed my prayers...
 
Michele

Oh Michele!! This is so LOVELY!! Your vellum blooms look gorgeous and I NEED that sentiment stamp set now. You are killing me girl!!! You did a FABULOUS job on this card. Stunning design. Oh, and a question-is the inside a sentiment that you typed or stamped? If you stamped it, what company? I don't have a ton for the inside and have been looking for some good stamp companies with longer sentiments.

Hi Michele very lovely take from the sketch!! The vellum flowers are so soft and pretty!!!

Thanks for the kind words you left on my blog! :) The woodgrain paper I have "save keep" for a while now! I finally decide it's the time to use it. LOL Anyway they are made in Canada by a company called Harmonie, name of design is Le Bois (code PA103). Unfortunately their web page won't load (www.loisirsharmonie.ca). :(
