Good Morning!  Such a HAPPY day, this is my first day off (well other than a Sunday) since the 4th of July.....WHAHOO!  I have no idea what I am going to do, or rather NOT do, but it will start with a nice hot cup of coffee and a stroll through my gardens.....ahhhhh!

Today's card I made for one of those girlfriends who makes you laugh and cry, all at once, you know her, I am sure you all have one!  They are the best!  Even if you don't see each other as often as you used too, you pick up right where you let off.  We as women, are amazing like that!

My card will be entered into these 2 Challenges, Art Impressions, Wet Or Dry Embossing, and Simon Says Monday, me when I tell you that all of my girlfriends feel like family!!!

I used the Laughing Set (4385) from Art Impressions.  I adore these 2 gals, how could you not, right?  And that sentiment?  HYSTERICAL!!!  (and true!)  I colored the images with Watercolor Pencils (so much to learn about them--for sure!)  The Designer Paper is by American Crafts, Dots And Stripes.  I used the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder as a border edge to hi-light my ladies!  Some ribbon accents, randomly tossed sequins, a piece of a white doily, and a little Sakura Glitter Pen to accent the earrings to complete the look.   Fun, fun, fun! 
May you all have such wonderful girlfriends in your lives, I know how lucky I am to be surrounded with amazing and like-minded women!
I actually went grocery shopping already, laundry is done, fruit salad is made and plants are watered.....NOW I can enjoy my day off! 
Thank you for coming by.

  2. OMGosh Donna, yes this is HYSTERICAL!! I just love that image and sentiment. It is exhausting for us girls to be so hilarious isn't it?? You're right, we all have that special girlfriend and we as women are just plain amazing all around. ;)
