for my friend

Sorry for being a bad blogger this week, baseball season is in full effect in my house, so that means 2-4 hours a day at the ball fields.  This past week, I was out of town, came home & my son got sick, hurt his leg & ended up in the ER, my daughter turned 13 on Friday, hubby came home from his detachment and I finally had time to make a card today.  Like I said, super busy LOL.  Any of you, who have children in sports can totally relate to the hectic schedule you endure for the season.
So here is my card, I used CPS sketch 105.  I needed a little jump start and this sketch was perfect.  Everything except for the twine is from PaperTreyink.  I got the new Friends set, and I really really like it!  This is going to one of my friends, who will enjoy a card from me and a nice piece of snail mail.  I don't think I have ever sent her a card before, so this is long overdue.
"Friends"

materials used:
kraft, stampers select card stock, raspberry fizz designer paper
Friend stamp set, white button, black satin dotted ribbon
curvy rectangle & scalloped square nestability
Graphite Black ink from Brilliance & Raspberry Fizz ink from Palette
