"Happy Saturday!  The weekend is here!  Normally I'd be cleaning, but I'm the mood for some card-making.  You could say my mojo is on!  LOL.  The card I'm posting today is for Stamp TV's Friday Challenge.  It calls for a stamped flower image and at least two different shapes (die cuts).

Yesterday I was looking at a great magazine (House of Fifty), and the inspiration I got from it is amazing!  By the way, thanks my friend from work for "hooking me up" with this magazine!  (I don't want to name her without her consent; my job depends on it!  LOL! ) Anyway, if you're looking to give your home a boost, take a look at this magazine.  It's overflowing with great ideas! And of course the card-maker in me could not stand to look at those pictures and not be inspired to make a card!  No specific image I can relate to, but just the feel of a vintage and classic look inspired this card:

I was also inspired by friendship itself.  I was thinking of those 'old' friendships that have lasted the test of time and how much beauty an value there is in those friendships.  Just as we come to appreciate the dent on an old dresser, or the 'personality' of an old piece, we come to appreciate our friends for all they are and treasure their friendship even more... So here's to 'old friendships', or better yet: vintage friendships that only get better with time!  

So back to the card, here's the list of materials:
