Helping a "Friend of Mine"... 55

Mona Pendleton | Monday, March 21, 2011 @ 8:00 AM | , , ,

Hi there! I am here today to celebrate the Grand Opening of The Craft's Meow online store owned by my sweet friend, Lisa Hjulberg. Many of you may be familiar with Lisa as she was formerly  the Mouse Keeper/DT Coordinator of Waltzingmouse Stamps who has now opened her own online papercrafting store. Claire, Owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps has designed a few EXCLUSIVE stamps for The Craft's Meow. In addition to carrying all your favorite papercrafting products, Lisa will specialize in selling custom card making kits that will include these exclusive stamps. ***The Craft's Meow online store is scheduled to open at 12:00 NOON PST today March 21st***
I created a card featuring both the gorgeous butterfly image and sweet "Friend of mine" sentiment that coordinate with Crate Paper's Portrait Collection which I currently do not have so, I used some lovely paper from the girl's paperie & K&Company instead.

I stamped the butterfly image using VersaMark ink then embossed with fine white embossing powder. Love the incredible detailed butterfly!
Love the beautiful font of the "Friend of mine"sentiment:
That's all I have for today. Thanks so much for looking :) Please feel free to visit The Craft's Meow store blog to read about all the new and exciting events happening and where you will find a list of the other friend's of The Craft's Meow who will also be sharing projects today. Have a great day!
