MMSC55 Forever Friends

Hi everyone and welcome to another week of the Midnight Madness Blogaversary. Be sure to check out the fun activity this week, you don't want to miss an opportunity to vote for the coveted "Priscilla" award. My post this week is an abbreviated one as I do not have a computer.This is our wonderful fancy sketch for this week. I took liberties with it and turned it on it's side because of my rather large Penny Black image I used.

This stamp is called Forever Friends. This is the first time I inked this one up and I just love it!!! Another bear too!!! About a couple weeks ago, my husband wanted me to take a ride to a pool place called Pinch-A-Penny to get some chemicals for our above ground pool. There was a Walmart next to it so I went in and found this beautiful lace trim. I am thrilled with how pretty it is and wish my Walmart here in town carried stuff like it!!! I used Spellbinders large scalloped edge squares and Martha Stewart's two sized butterfly punches. I colored my images with pencils and then stickled the edges. All and all they are pretty sweet together. It is going to be hard for me to send this one away to someone...lol

Carol, what a charming card with these little bears. :) It seems every time I make a card with bears now, you pop into my mind. I think to myself... "Carol is gonna love this!" LOL! And I have a couple of bears on my "to do" list at this very moment, so watch for them OK. Your talent and energy are always so inspiring to me. Thanks for all the fun this past year on the MM DT. Have a wonderful and safe summer. :) Michelle
