Old Friends

There are several things that are very important in life.  For me my faith is the most important.  Next would be family and followed closely after that would be friends -- especially friends you have had for a long, long time.  Connection with family is important -- you have a shared familial history that is not shared with anyone else - even if that family history has some rocky memories.  But old friends also have  shared experiences that others may not know about or even understand.   In times of struggles these shared experiences and love can be a very real help.   This sentiment on the Technique Junkie stamp Old Friends captures that emotion beautifully.  Even if you only inked up the sentiment top stamp and not the ladies, this stamp is worth having in your collection. At least in my opinion.    I stamped this image on vellum and colored it ink dye based markers.

To create this card I used the Antique Glimmers technique on a white panel. Then I stamped the Technique Junkie stamp Old Pier   I inked it with Memento Tuxedo back ink.  I tore the vellum around the  stamped image of Old Friends, ran it through a Xyron adhesive machine and place it on the  background panel. Then I layered it on black card stock, tied a shimmery blue ribbon around that panel and then adhered it to the base card.

Have a great inky day!
