Look North

Ten years ago, when I moved to my town, I joined a reading group and made a good friend. Now, she's left me and cleared off to Yorkshire!

I used a Tando chipboard house and fence, coloured them with ink and stamped with a flourish stamp. I made a hill out of a page torn from a book we did at the reading group, which fell to pieces. The numbers in the sky are an Inkadinkado stamp. I masked off the edges of the card black and inked through a stone wall mask.

I'd like to enter:

In addition to that bookpage being a decorative element I think it's also a nice personal touch considering the history between the two of you. Great idea to paint and stamp the chipboard piece - I will try that, I've got so many plain chipboards laying around. A nicely put together scene!

cm said... sad that your friend is moving, but I know you'll find ways to stay in touch! Your card: heart-warming, especially since you've used papers from books that the two of you connected over! She'll love it - and yes, I think some tears will be shed (I'm on the brink, knowing what it's like to have special people move away).
