Photo Card For A Friend

Good morning friends

My friend Kay and I celebrate February birthday's, and the last couple of years we have been able to get together with our hubby's for a nice dinner. This February we went to a fancy schmancy steak house where we enjoyed a fabulous meal. Then the waiter brought us free desserts, so that was a fun surprise.

This photo was taken at the restaurant, and the next morning I printed it off with my Instax SHARE printer and rather than just send her the photo I made it into a card.

I die cut one of Lynda Kanase's photo frames with the word 'friends' from gold foil card stock, then backed the word area with white card stock so it would stand out. Then I adhered the photo in behind the frame and added it to a die cut white mat. I love how you can customize these frames by cutting them from card stock, patterned paper, corrugated card stock, old maps etc etc.

The gold rimmed and enamel stickers were in my stash (you know how much I love stickers) and the stamp set was a fairly new purchase so it all came together easily.

What a fun piece of Happy Mail to send to a friend - another reason I love this hobby so much.
