I've been feeling meh lately. I want to make pretty things but I just get stuck. Well, I got stuck on this card on Sunday night and I was sooo frustrated that I just shut the door to my scrap spot and finally had time tonight (thanks to my HEEVIL employer who has me scheduled to work 45 hours this week even though I am supposed to be part-time) to work on a little something. Such a simple card but for the life of me, I couldn't figure out how to make it look NOT dumb. I'm still not pleased but whatever at least I got it behind me. hehe

Stamps: Gwenny from C.C. Designs at All That Scraps

CS and papers: All CS is from Stampin' Up! Pattern paper from Sassafras Lass.

Ink: SU! basic black and Distress Ink in.....oh I can't remember which one...from Ranger.

Accessories: Making memories circle punches, perfect layers (otherwise, my layers would be a hot mess), LOTS of glitter pens, her "jeans" were colored with a Sakura glitter pen and her handbag was colored with a brown glitter pen. Also, her sunglasses, lipstick and hair bow was colored with a pink glitter pen. GLITTERIFFIC! I colored her shirt, hair and skin with Prisma pencils and OMS. The stitched ribbon is from Michael's.

Other info:
I couldn't find the right sentiment for it that would work in the space I wanted it to work, so I just hand wrote "friend" on the pink layer.

Hope y'all have a fabulous day! We're in for some wind here in Northern California. At least I know my fence won't blow down as we just had it replaced a few months ago. :)
