Friends are the Best Collectibles

Welcome Everyone;

Beginning in our childhood to adulthood, we have all collected objects whether it be rocks in the garden, shells from a beach, our favourite books, pieces of art etc.  However, there is really only one type of collectibles that qualifies to be the "Best Collectibles" and that is the friends we meet throughout our life journey.  

For today's card, I have used the adorable Lasso Some Snow stamp from High Hopes Stamps, Winter Friends Release and paired it with the Best Collectibles sentiment.  Innstead of lassoing the snow, he is rounding up some friends.

After stamping the image onto XPress It Blending cardstock, I coloured it with Copic Markers, and then cut it out using a Spellbinders Square Die.  The mat behind the image was cut using a Double Stitched Square Die.  Some twine and enamel dots finished off the card.
