Friends Are Family

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your day. I want to share a friendship card I made with the cute Ellie the Elephant stamp set 553 from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I love the saying "friends are the family we choose". God has blessed me with such a wonderful friend family! I cherish each and every one of you! It seems like I have been doing a lot of paper piecing lately, but I love the look of it, so Ellie is polka dotted this time!

I cut strips of patterned paper and left some gaps between to add Gypsy Red glitter GM2005 to the background.Sparkling Snow glitter G1003 was used on Ellie's polka dots and Bubblegum glitter G1088 was used on the mouse.

For full instructions on how to make this card, please click here.

Thank you so much for dropping by. I hope your day is full of good things!
