Best Buds

I am very blessed to have three best friends in my life.  Charlie, my husband; Cynthia, my sister; and Carol, my pretend sister.  Each has brought unmeasurable joy to my life.  Today's card showcases my best buds.  This is a stamp from Whipper Snapper.  The background is cut out using my Nestability die.  The ribbon is from PapertreyInc and the crochet flower was a gift I received in a swap.  Isn't it the sweetest thing?  I wanted my colors to be bright and happy because, well, I just needed that today.  The buttons from my stash are tied with yellow baker's twine and the paper was purchased at TheInkSpot here in St. Louis.  A quant little store housed in an old home.  Lovely.  Happy.  I cut some of the background paper with my pinking shears and tied the pretty bow using my Bow Easy.  You all have to get one of those for yourself-they tie perfect bows every time.  Just google Bow Easy to find a shop that carries them.  This afternoon I spent time with my best bud doing things for their upcoming trip to Hawaii where she and her husband will renew their wedding vows on the beach at sunset.  I'm JEALOUS!!!! lol.  My husband wants to renew our vows onboard a cruise ship-isn't he romantic?  I think so!  Off to cook some dinner.  Beef over rice with cheese stuffed cornbread.  Take card and enjoy my card.  Love, Elle

Here is a close up of my best buds:
