Friends make life blossom

Happy Saturday everyone!  Well summer is definitely here, it is going to be about 110 today. So unless you have a pool you stay inside today. 

Well another card for another special friend.  I used The Skipping Stones Design Sketch #26  As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to make a gate card.  Love these designs and this one worked perfect.  I had just bought this stamp from Whipper Snapper - Hugo.  He is sooooo cute.  I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  It is just my style whimsical and kookie, a caricature just like me.  Anyway I got my color inspiration from the ColourQ Challenge #35

I embossed the sentiment in orange.  The sentiment stamp is from - wow I looked all over the stamp and there is nothing written on it at all.  I wish I could tell you where I got it from but I have had it for a while and can't tell you.   Hugo I colored with my copics and then used Martha Stewart Green Flock on him.  I glued the flock with Glossy Accents.  I am sure you can tell I used my Nesties and also pierced around the cut out.  Just a little extra.  The card stock is very hard to tell but it is green bazzill, the DP is orange from a pack called Flower Shower of DCWV.

This is a first. the first time I've seen a gate card open more like a 'tailgate'.LOL. Love that you thought of it! do they even make cars that open that way any more. I remember a station wagon years ago. love the worm. Isn't it hard to photograph the 'gates'?
