Friend Like You

Friend Like You is a stamp set that is in the 2019/2020 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.  It has a matching set of dies called Friendly Silhouettes and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle un June 2nd.  Both of these items will be in the 2020/2021 Annual Catalog but the bundle discount will not be available.  The stamp set is a two step stamp set which means it takes two or more stamps to make an image.

The colors I used on this card are Whisper White, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana.  I really like how well they go together.  They remind me of summer and warm weather (which we have yet to see!).   I first stamped the stems onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Granny Apple Green.  Then I used my Stampin Write Markers to color the flowers on the second stamp using Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather.  Then I cut that out using the the tag from Bonanza Dies set.  Sadly, this die set and the matching stamp set called Bonanza Buddies are retiring on June 2nd.  I cut the rest of the rectangles out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The Cat Tails are a die from Friendly Silhouettes.

Friend Like You

Friend Like You is a fun stamp set that is in the 2019 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.  It has matching dies called Friendly Silhouettes and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  I think it is a fun bundle because it has palm trees, dragonflies and a great font with happy sentiments.  Some of the stamps are two step stamps.  This means it takes two or more stamps to make an image.

The colors I used on this card are Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Coastal Cabana.  I think these colors look great together because they are bright and cheery.  I first stamped the grass in Granny Apple Green and then the flowers in Mango Melody in the middle of a 3.75″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then I randomly stamped the dragonflies in Coastal Cabana ink.  I placed a piece of Mango Melody checked Designer Series Paper from the 6″ x 6″ Brights pack and then added the strip from the opposite side along the top.  I stamped the sentiment in Granny Apple Green and then cut out each side using the Everyday Label punch as below:

I haven’t posted pictures of my grandchildren lately so I thought it was about time.  I have been visiting them so you will see a bunch of them in the future.  Here is sweet Olivia.  I can’t believe how much she has changed in the last three months.  She smiles a lot now and squeals like a Pterodactyl (all my grands did.  We must have dinosaur in our blood).

I have a crazy adventure to tell you about.  Rob has been looking at trucks for a few weeks.  Right now he drives a company car so he didn’t really have a vehicle of his own.  He decided a truck would be best so it could pull the boats and use it for other things that can only be done with a truck.  He found out if you buy a truck from this dealer in Maryland you could save a ton of money as compared to the dealers up here.  He found the one he wanted, got a great price for it and decided to go ahead and purchase it.  The only bad thing is Maryland is 7 hours from us.

On the morning he wanted to go, he made me get up at 3:45 AM to get a 5:00 flight out of Watertown to fly to Baltimore.  We had to stop in Philadelphia for a layover but we were in Maryland by 10:00 AM.  The dealership picked us up at the airport, did our paperwork and we left around 12:30 for the long drive home.  Only crazy people would do this.  My husband is one of these crazy people!

Anyway, Rob got his new truck and he loves it.  Even I think it is very nice for a truck!

I wonder if he will ever let me drive it!
