Girls just wanna have fun!

I can't sit still this morning..
Suzie, is at the vets having some tests done and I jump every time the phone goes!
I'm trying to take my mind off it by planning tomorrows activities.
It's my BFF's birthday and she is coming up to stay. So excited :-)
Here's the card I made for her - that's the two of us right there - 
I am the mouthy red head and she is the pretty blonde. :-)
 

Isn't this Stamping Bella image fabulous. 
I love it when you find a stamp that loooks exactly like you  -  ha ha!! I wish!!
The girls are coloured with Copics and a generous sprinkling of glamour dust.
I know the colours look a bit washed out on the picture below, but I wanted to try and capture the sparkle.



Challenges.
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Happy Birthday
By The Cute & Girly - Favourite Things. There are so many of my favourite things on this card - the stamp, gems, that gorgeous brocade paper and of course, the glitter.
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Girly
Stamptacular Sunday - To Die For.  I think I use my banner dies more than any others. They are great to stamp a sentiment on, but I also like to group them together. They make a perfect embellie.
Sentimental Sundays - Embellies that start with 'B' I went for 3 banners. It's hard to make out on the photo, but two of them are cut from metallic paper, that gives a pretty sheen.

  • Stampin Bellas, Victoria and Juliette's Night Out.
  • Copics, Glamour Dust
  • Pink Petticoat Digi Paper, Brocade.
  • Spellbinders Nested Pennants Die
  • Crystal Gems and Ribbon
  • 'Party' Sentiment was a magazine freebie.

Hi Caroline

Just found your lovely blog - you do make some really gorgeous cards, plus you live in Co. Durham. I'm down in Hampshire after many years in Northumberland and still miss stottie cakes and pease pudding!!

Just gonna follow you - bye for now! Di xx
