Friends Never Fade Anniversary Card

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful day. We are home sweet home, but not for long. This summer is jammed packed with all kinds of things.  Honestly, I am looking forward to it slowing down a bit.  It's fun to go go go, but I feel like I just want to be home in my own bed for a while!

In July, two of my closest friends celebrate their anniversaries. Actually, they celebrate them one day apart. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to put some of my new stamp sets to use. For this card, I used the Friends Never Fade stamp set, as well as the Artistic Etchings stamp set. Both sets are new this year.  I also used the new Vintage Wallpaper impressions folder.  There are some great new products in the new catalog. I hope you will check it out!

Looking back at this card, I think the square in the middle could stand to be a little smaller.  I love the color scheme.  Also, can you see the paper in the background?  That is another new item in this year's catalog.  It is from the Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper pack.

In other news, I am still waiting on some last items to finish my craft room.  I feel like it's the project that never ends.  I ordered chairs online because I needed a special height for my tables (which are 36 inch counter height).  They have been delayed.  I ordered them in mid-June and they are not expected to ship until August 9th now!  I am so frustrated.  I just want this to be done.  I will be lucky if the chairs arrive by the time I have to return to school on August 17th.  My craft room will also have to double as my study space, so I need those chairs!

I hope you are having a wonderful summer!  I hope you are finding time to do what you love the most and spending time with those you love the most.  I would love to hear what you've been up to!  Feel free to leave comments here or on my You Tube channel!  Enjoy your day!
