A Toast To Friends

Tossing in another Girlfriends card for the Art Impressions' challenge. These ladies make me smile, and I especially love the sentiments in this set.  I guess it's not one of AI's newer sets, but like wine, the older the better!

I stamped the sentiment on cork -- thought it was appropriate -- and gave the girls some "tiny bubbles" (aka sequins) to add excitement!  Hope your weekend involves time with good friends and good cheer!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Trying new things -- I like to do that. At the recent Rubber Stamp Convention in Carson, CA I picked up a couple Art Impressions Girlfriends/BFFs stamps because they made me think about the long-lasting relationships I have with some of my own girlfriends and BFFs. It really is all about having fun!

I decided to try the Magic Pencil technique because I love to color...have done since forever!  I really enjoyed using my colored pencils and Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) to create a smooth, blended look. Still perfecting this technique, but I had lots of fun giving it a go!

Barista BFFs

Did you notice the strip of corrugated coffee cup sleeve I used behind the sentiment?  I thought it was a nice touch. When I checked out the Art Impressions blog I noticed they had a Girlfriends weekly challenge, so I decided to join in the fun!

I really had a good time with these ladies -- you may see more of them here on the blog and, perhaps, in a card making class near you!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping in...
