The Value of Friendship...



"Best friends are like diamonds, precious and rare
False friends are like leaves, found everywhere."

A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are."

I think it's fair to say a friend is a a valuable commodity! Whether you compare them to diamonds..truly great friends are hard to find.

Today Designer Lisa Day made a beautiful trio of friendship cards using the Basic Grey Sweet Threads collection.  Today is a great day to stop, make a card, or two or three...and then yes...mail one out. That's right! Put it in an envelope, place a stamp and send it to someone special! Just think of how they'll feel when they receive it!!

  2. Beautiful cards they all have an elegant look to them.

  3. My scrap funds have been depleted lately so I haven't really been shopping for products lately.

    but will be on the lookout when I do.

    Would love to win some greta products--thanks for the chance

  4. I have no problem getting refills for my glue gun. I haven't seen the U cut it foam yet. Looks great to work with and popping up things. Thanks for the chance :)

  5. Beautiful cards, just perfect for a beautiful friend

  6. Love the cards! So many layers- just beautiful.


  7. So pretty! thanks also for a chance to win!

  8. Very pretty set of cards--I like the design and the doilies.
    I think I have just seen the glue glider pro at my stores.

  9. I love those cards! I live out in the middle of no where and don't have any stores nearby. I love to make several cards with similar colors, just because if I"m working with certain pages, it's just as easy to make several as it is to make one.

  10. I pick up my refills at Hobby Lobby mostly, but they also have them at my LSS

  11. I love these cards! So beautiful!

  12. I love all the Glue Arts products!! My Glue Glider is my trusty friend. I have not tried the embellishment kit yet though I would LOVE to get it-I order all my stuff online since I live in the country-so far Have had no problem finding your products online...

  13. Very pretty cards! So pretty and simple too! My LSS carries the GGP, but I don't think she has any of your other adhesives, I think I'll have to mention that to her!

  14. Beautiful cards..and yes...Best friends are..well...the BEST :)

  15. I have seen your adhesives in Michael's I believe. I haven't tried the foam yet...

  16. The cards are lovely very creative. I used the Glue Glider Pro with the Perma Tac last night works great. I would like to try the U cut it foam adhesive. Thank you for sharing.

  17. My local Arcivers is where I get my GGP refills, but that is ALL they have! Thank you for making this embellishment pack!!! I will certainly be ordering it..... if I don't win it! :)

  18. Such beautiful cards and I have tried the ribbon adhesive and love it.

  19. I'm lucky to have two of the big chain crafts stores nearby (across the street from each other, so I always hit both). Big as they are, they never seem to have everything I'm looking for...
    Sweet cards, sweet idea.

  20. I don't have one of these glue guns yet. Maybe I will get one as a present soon. Very pretty cards. Just became a new follower. tfs Tami
