Big Squishy Waltzingmouse Hugs & Old Friends!

I have a bit of a thing for …graph paper.
Not sure where the love has come from.
Possibly stemmed from the colouring pages I used to do as a kid- like this

I think it’s the repeating pattern idea- if you don’t believe I’ve used graph paper on my card- here’s a close up

The set which is beautiful is called Gift Card It from Waltzingmouse Stamps here

The set is all about creating gift cards.. some gorgeous sentiments. I’ve not even started making a gift card greeting yet! There’s a brilliant die that goes with it too. Their service is super speedy and I really recommend them. The paper and gold adhesive sheet is from Cosmo Cricket.

Today I met up with an old friend. One I’ve been utterly rubbish about keeping in touch with. It was lovely to pick up where we’d left off nearly 7 years later. Amazing isn’t it how friendship with some people just spans time.. with no expectations, just a connection and bond nearly as unique as the person you’re friends with.
It was lovely trying to cram the past 7 years into a couple of hours. We did it pretty well, but vowed not to leave it so long this time.
Here’s to friends, chatting and whiling away the hours. Who do you miss and who would you love to spend a few hours with?

Off to catch up with some ironing.
As if.

    Love the graph paper, the wreath/flowers look wonderful against it and love how the wreath creeps off the card a bit.

    I love the orderliness of graph paper. It has this comfort thing going for it–you know exactly what comes next…another teeny tiny square. I would have never thought to use graph paper on a flowery image. Will definitely have to try this. Yours is amazingly beautiful. Wonderful composition too. Glad you caught up with your friend. Me, I miss Sue, who moved to Detroit, and Val, who lives in Florida now. But like you, when we call or visit, we fall back into our bonded friendship. It’s really kind of wonderful. Have a Blessed Easter.

    What a fabulous card!! Love the use of graph paper … Nice that you got to catch up with your friend … time just runs away and the best thing about good friends is that you can just pick up where you left off … Have a lovely day!

    This is amazing and yes, I remember those coloring pages!

    I’ve used graph paper for children’s crafts. Different colored markers to make an X in each square to make simple pictures and words to make an non-sewing cross-stitch design or card. Creative, but orderly. I kind of love graph paper, too!

      I’m glad you love it too. It’s becoming a little addictive using. I’m now looking out for different types! Ha ha!

    Wow…how gorgeous!! Using the graph paper is such a great idea in adding details for this stamped card!! Love that touch of gold, too!
