Inspired by my friend

Good Morning!
Well our snow is pretty much gone AGAIN ;) It's going to be quite warm this weekend...think I'll have to pull out my capris soon!!!
Yesterday my girlfriend Sandy came by to stamp with me. She is my walking partner and keeps me going each night...even when I TRY to get out of it...she keeps me motivated!
When I saw the SCS sketch challenge I immediately thought of the Season of Friendship set. The image panel needed something large and the tree was perfect for it!!
Stamps: Season of Friendship; Cardstock: Choc chip, Regal rose, Pumpkin pie, WW and Sweet Always dp; Inks: Choc chip, Regal rose, Pretty in Pink; Accessories: Scalloped edge punch, Silver brads, Martha butterfly punch, Martha pearls, Dimensionals
Since Sandy doesn't have a blog or a SCS gallery(although I'm trying to talk her into one) I thought I'd share the card she made for the sketch challenge. Her card uses the Inspired By Nature set. I think her card turned out GREAT!
Thanks for stopping by today!

I knew you would have two cards!! I started one, but when you knew "immediately", I was still deciding. I still haven't picked out my set...maybe next week! These are both gorgeous...perfect choices for the sketch!

You're making me feel guilty not using my SU stamps. LOL! You're doing such beautiful work with them. Did you know I only used the Season of Friendship stamp set once since I bought it? Arggh, I think I need to dust it off and use it. I love the way you added the pearls to the flowers...so pretty I love the brads too. . .just a beautiful card, period.

Your second card is gorgeous too! I love the use of those brads the way you did it!! I think I may have to steal that idea!!

Glad to hear the snow is gone!! It's been cold here in CA but no snow. ..thank goodness. I don't like being cold.
