Friends with Flair!
It's a celebration this week for Friends With Flair! I'm writing this and scheduling it ahead of time because I'll be on a scrapbook retreat Thursday-Sunday (July 18-21). I've never done anything like this before. I've gone on an evening crop at the LSS, but never an overnight, much less a 4 day one. AND, I've only met these ladies online. I know them by names like LBAB and JeepMama and Clayton528. Do they sound trustworthy to YOU? If I don't post next Friday, someone please send a search party!
OK, where was I? Oh, yeah, it's a celebration! Yesterday was my BFF's birthday. I made her two cards. I wanted one to be super fun, and one to be pretty and serious. You get to see the fun one this week and the serious one next week.
I love the fashionista images. They are so fun to color. I went with one of them for my card:
This is Roxanne, and she is really strutting her stuff. I thought she would be perfect for a fun 40-something birthday card. Inside, I wrote, "did we ever look like that?" And of course, "Happy Birthday".
Here's a close up of her, with some of the bling I added to make her "shine like a diamond!"
I colored her with Copic markers, used some BoBunny papers, a Unity sentiment, and Close To My Heart bling. There she is. What do you think? Will my BFF like it?
I'm giving away some blog candy. I'm hopping with the All That Stickles design team on Sunday, 7-21. It is my final hop with the team, as I'm moving on to other things. In honor of the fun I've had on the team, I'm giving away some Stickles (of course), buttons, brads, ribbon, and other goodies. To be eligible for the blog candy, please follow my blog and leave a comment on this post. To increase your chances of winning, you can comment again on tomorrow's post for Joy's Life stamps, and hop with the All That Stickles team on Sunday and comment on my post (7-21). Good luck!
