When visiting my friend Marilyn last spring, I borrowed her stamp to stamp off a few of these images, and accompanying verse.

It is coloured with chalks, and distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tea Dye.
Background paper is K & Co, and border a scrap of SU designer paper cut with a Martha Stewart border punch.

I gathered the crocheted ribbon with needle & thread to shape it around the chipboard "smile" oval.

Inside verse reads:

A friend like you
makes a friend
like me
really happy to have
a friend like you!
