Aloha Peeps!   Hooray, it's Friday and I'm ready for the weekend of crafting.  How 'bout you?

Here's a card I recently made as a sample for Island Scrapbooking.  Couldn't resist this "Koala Bear Hug" image by Candi Bean.  I've been seeing LOTS of cards using a variety of stitched dies in blog land and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them.   So when I saw the "Stitched Sky" die set by Mama Elephant and "Stitched Scallop Edges" die by Die-namics, it was a no-brainer....just "had to" get them.   LOL.  

Also used:
"Friends" laser cut sentiment by and from Island Scrapbooking
Flat-back pearls by Kaiser Crafts

After making all of my Christmas cards and coaster calendars for the holidays, I wiped out my supply of double-stick tape.  Couldn't believe I was down to my last roll.   Eeek!  THANK YOU HM BEN FRANKLIN CRAFTS for having a sale on them.   I bought 25 rolls and am happy as can be.  YAY, my stock has been replenished.

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!!

Awww!!! Such an adorable card, Karen...LOVE that stamped image too. Fabulous job on the coloring, as always and really like the fancy stitched scallop edged border accent! 25 rolls of Heiko tape? WOW!!!But with all the cards and projects you're always so busily working on, that may not last very long, eh?

I love the card. The stamp is so cute. I especially like the koala bears.

Wow! You purchased 25 rolls of double stick tape. I am glad that you were able to get them on sale. 25 rolls should last for awhile. :)

BTW, I'm surprised you don't have any stitched dies until now. Looks like you'll have to stock up. hehehe..
Yay for you for sales and finding your dbl sided tape amongst them.
