Happy Friday!!!!



Happy Friday everyone!!! Hope you are all having a fantastic Friday! The weather here is beautiful and sunny. I have to work all day on Saturday, but I'm hoping to enjoy what's left of the weekend anyway!!

Today's card is a cute little square card that I made for.....yep, you guessed it....a FRIEND!! I used my little Penny Black pair of girlfriends and stamped them in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on Shimmery White paper and used my SU markers in several colours to colour them in. I punched them out using my Mega Oval punch and then doodled around the edge with my black journaler. The colours came from a piece of leftover double sided patterned paper by 3 Bugs in a Rug. I'm trying to use up some scraps on my table these days instead of carving into some new stuff....not that I am running low or anything!! *giggle* FAR from it!!

The card base is a piece of Old Olive and is 4 1/4 X 4 1/4. I cut the striped patterned paper using my corner rounder to make the scalloped edge, then matted it on Almost Amethyst and used my black Sakura Glaze gel pen to do the dots. I used some round green rhinestones on the black photo corners to 'bling' it up and added some black gingham to the whole piece. I stamped the word friends from my Papertrey set and used the Word Window Punch to cut it out. Then I used my Giga Scalloped Oval to cut out the matting in Basic Black and pop dotted the main image!! I just love these girls!!

Today Al and I are turning in our Ford F-250 because the lease is up. He has been driving a truck since the day I met him, but he picked out a car to replace it this time!! No one was more shocked than I but he decided that with gas being the price that it is, it just made more financial sense to purchase a smaller vehicle. So we are heading out soon to drop off the truck and pick up our new car!! I am excited because I haven't even seen it yet!! But I'm MORE excited because he's taking me to TWO new STAMP STORES today!!!!!!!!! Heehee!!!!!!!!! I'm so 'cited I can't STAND it!!! Anyway, I'll be sure to take pictures and let you know what I find!!!! Happy Friday!!!

What an awesome layout. I love how you used those corner pieces to cover the ends of the scalloped piece. I know how difficult it to get those corners to match, so a cover-up is a great touch.
