Laugh Often

Good morning! Sorry, I didn't get to my Harry Potter pages, but I promise I will get to them as soon as I can. I have a friend that is going through a really, really tough time. She has to be one of the strongest woman I know and has such an amazing sense of humor, I wanted to remind her I was thinking of her and to laugh often. I also saw this challenge over at one of Marlene's blogs, and I wanted to get this in over there, http://squigglefly.blogspot.com. You have to use Kraft paper. You have to check out the work of Marlene's team on this one, AMAZING!!! I am going to admit I have an addiction to Kraft Paper, I use it all the time. The base of this card is Kraft paper. Here is the recipe for this card:

Kraft paper for the base of the card.

Accent Essential Cart - for the two frames, pg 78, cut @ 3.25 and 3.75

Beyond Birthdays - Laugh Often, 2.25 and then I shadowed it.

Tim Holtz paper for the frames and the cranberry paper - Ideology - Lost and Found Paper

Tim Holtz Embossing folder Alternations (lined paper)

Swiss Dots Embossing Folder for the Laugh Often

Buttons and twine from my stash.


  1. Awesome love the distressed look and the double frame!

  2. Your friend will love it! Good luck in the challenge!

  3. Wonderful sentiment to cheer up a friend. I wish her all the best.

    Great job, I love the paint or ink over the embossing lines, shows a lot of texture. And I adore the layered frames.
