friends for life

Happy Anniversary to me... happy anniversary to me... happy anniversary dear Jody (and hubby), happy anniversary to me. :) Today is my TENTH wedding anniversary. WOWZERS! We will more than likely celebrate the day with dinner out (with 3 kiddos) and will probably save the movie portion of our typical date for Friday, when a movie comes out that hubby has been SO wanting to see (The Hurt Locker).

Do you read Jen del Muro's blog? I do. :) Every Saturday she posts a SFYTT (sketch for you to try) and they are GREAT sketches! This week I actually played within a couple days (YAY me-ala London Tipton... don't know what I am talking about? You must not have young girls in the house LOL).

Here is my soft and subtle friends for life card:

You can find Jen's sketch HERE.

I once again played with my new Unity stamps. I have a big ol' pile that need to be used, so it's going to be a Unity kind of a week.

The flowers were stamped in Memento black and colored with Copic markers. I used a Quickie Glue pen and went over the centers of the flowers and then added clear glitter to make them sparkle. The light shadowing was done with my BG0000, BG10 and my colorless blender. I used the yummy Sweet Slumber paper from SU that Joanne "made" me buy. :) I hope you're a fan of it, because I went a little CRAZY with the paper pack and made lots of cards with it. :)

My friend Karen says that the newest trend is to finish the inside of stamped cards.... good thing I finished this one. LOL Of course she won't see this reference to her, because she doesn't READ my blog posts! heehee
You won't believe this, but I have SEVEN more cards stamped and ready to blog about. YAY me for being ahead! I am trying to get ahead of the game so I can have plenty to post even when I am at CHA! :) Who is going to CHA? Mememememememememememememe! If you're going, see you there! I will likely be in the MFT booth the majority of the time, so make sure to stop by and say hi! :)
Ink: Memento black
Paper: white, saffron, black, Sweet Slumber SU dp
Accessories: Janome sew mini, copic markers, circle punches, clear glitter, Quickie Glue Pen, silver brads, red line dimensionals, saffron ribbon
Have a GREAT day!
