I want to dedicate this card to all of you who have stood by me, with me and for me through all the joys and sorrows of this wild, wonderful and crazy life.
This card features one of the new Companion Stamp Sets by Quietfire Design.
I got some embossing powder at the thrift store, and used it to make the boarder. I then layered with paper stash and set off the quote with Spellbinders Lacy Squares. the quote is thermal embossed with Versafine Sepia- my go to ink for fine line stamping. The 'Ever' is Versafine Lagoon Blue.
Lots of shading with Distress, Old paper, Antique Linen and Lilac.
The inside features the I thank you companion stamp. I thermal embossed it with the Versafine sepia and centered it on Spellbinders Grommet Tags.
Comments and questions always welcome.
Having the right stamp gets you thorough times of no words better than words get you through times of no stamps!
Invisible tears ( it just took me 15 minutes to figure out how to post this link) from Quietfire ( that only took 2 tries- it gets better) is the right stamp.
Thanks to suzanne the whole Quietfire family and all family and friends hanging in with me through this time.
Lots or new rubber , new designers and all good stuff coming from Quietfire, so please check back soon.

This quote popped out the other day as a snappy comeback to some conversation we were having digitally, and the next thing you know......
The Moral of the Story is- watch what you say to Suzanne- it might end up as rubber!
When you get these new Summer Stamps I bet you can't stamp just one.
I started with black paper to pull out my dark side(LOL), then ate the chocolate bar so I could cut up the wrapper!.
I put several layers of Picket Fence Distress stain and thermal embossed the quote.
Added some Vintage Photo stain, and some walnut Distress Marker.
I can't wait to see what y'all create with this new rubber! Please post a link to your creations in the comments and on the Quietfire FaceBook page.
