CELEBRATE!!!!!!

Good morning! And hello Friday! It has been a very crazy week for me at work so I have not had a chance to get back here since Tuesday...BUT I do have a card for you today...My card was created with an image from Stef (aka Glitterbabe) called Sweet Brier...is it darling or what? Stef always does an awesome job with her flowers. I colored it with copics, and then I used Crystal effects on the whole image. Not real sure that I should have done that but...oh well it is done! I tried a new technique for me with the nestabilities...I cut out the nestie shape with part of my flower out of the shape...it was not hard to do and I rather like the effect. Then layered in behind that with another size of that same Blossom nestie and then the green layer is the Fluer de Lis Pendant. I did pop dot the whole layered image on my card...cut out the corners of the designer paper and the pink layer on the card was embossed with the Sizzix Dots folder. The Celebrate Today sentiment was from a collection of sentiments I had picked up at Big Lots from Cloud 9. Hope you like!

And today is a special day for me!!! I am celebrating!!! Why you ask??? No it is NOT my birthday, no I am NOT retiring (though I wish I was!)....OK...I will tell you...I am off to a convention in Collinsville with my bestest buddy Stef!!!! Yep...got the day off work, we will drive down today and stay until Sunday afternoon! I am so excited to spend the time with Stef, I am sure we are going to have a blast. I will take pics and post a few if  I get a chance!

Have a fabulous day today...I will be back to check in later today and maybe get some visiting done tonight if time allows! Thanks so much to each and every one of you for stopping in to see me and for leaving me some love!
HUGS!

Love the card - and the crystal effects is perfect. Don't you enjoy cutting "out of the box" (I think that is what it is called). Enjoyed lunch, metting you and Stef - how much fun we had although spent way 2 much $$$, but heck why do we work??? Will check in on your blog often. have a safe trip home.
