Welcome to the friendship blog hop 2/19-2/21! Post #2

Hi! 
Welcome to the Friendship Blog Hop! This is the 2nd post – I hadn’t intended to do two posts, but came upon a challenge and couldn’t resist…

Crafty Card Gallery is the first stop in the hop; so if you came here to hop, you’re in the right place.  If you were coming to my blog just to visit, grab your favorite drink and hop along with us!
There are 26 awesome stops for you this weekend; all will be showcasing cards with a friendship theme – get well, thinking of you, thanks for being a friend, etc.  We often don’t take the opportunity to tell our friends or others what they mean to us; this is a good opportunity to do so…
So here’s my card:

The inside












For those of you that follow on Facebook know I recently took a Copic Marker class… I wanted to play with my new toys & stumbled upon this website  Copic Marker Scrapbooking and their design team call.  I loved the image & decided to try, even though I’m a beginner at Copics…
This also qualifies for 

Stampin’ Royalty Challenge #59, my second challenge (since the card below was entered into a challenge too!)

I could totally see giving this card to a girl friend after a break up or other guy troubles….  I love the frog!!!
So it’s colored with Copics, and background is glitter paper and SEI paper with some gems, stickles on the crown & pen stitching.
If you didn’t come by on Saturday, here’s the first card I posted:
Inside of the card:
All Cricut Cuts are from Create A Critter.  The pattern paper is SEI and the other paper is just paper I had.  I recommend using Best glitter cardstock; it cuts better than the paper I used…  And of course, liberal pen stitching with a white gel pen.  This is a really easy card – just cut, use the pen, add a few gems and assemble.  I made 4 of these for my card swap today and they were pretty quick!
I love the insides that look cute too!  Especially since I usually don’t write too much!
And of course I have blog candy!!!
