This month's theme at Naughty or Nice Challenges is "Friends". Ahhhhhh....friends! If you're like me you have a wide variety of with varied tastes, with some being eerily similar to you. I'm lucky enough to have some great friends in my life and am thankful for all of them! Although different, they all bring something exciting and fun to the table. Younger, older, male, female, you're all special and I'm fond of all of you :) Thanks for the laughter, advice, compassion, support and honesty you've all given me over the months or years that we've known each other!
Without further ado, here's my salute to my friends. And this rings true with quite a few of them LOL
Now this just makes me giggle! Isn't the naked guy hilarious?! It really reminds me of Will Ferrell from Old School.
It's a very simple card and I thought for a while that I needed to add more color or something, but I didn't want to fancy it up. I liked it simple :) I love that it's gender neutral because like I said, I have some pretty fantastic male friends too. To execute the plan, I made an A2 card with Neenah Solar White Cardstock, stamped my image, then stamped the words. I didn't use a ruler or anything to make them line up perfectly since it was more of a silly card than a fancy one. I started with the word "things" and then lined the other words up as best as I could in relation to that one. I messed up the 'b' and the 'e' in the word "remember", but tried fixing it with a white gel pen. It's a little darker than the other letters, but I think I fixed it pretty good :) I stamped "...alone" on the inside because let's just face it, sometimes that's the cold hard truth!
That's about it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Get out your supplies and make something special for one of your friends, then share it with us on the Naughty or Nice blog! You have all month to work on your creation :)

TIPS AND TRICKS:
When creating words using alphabet stamps, decide which letter is the middle letter of the word you're making, and stamp that near the center of where you want the word to be. For example, the middle letter of "things" is 'i' so I started with that letter.
Work from the inside out, then bottom to top.
