If friends were flowers, I'd pick you!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to quickly post a card that I have made this evening, for one of my best friends.  She has recently helped me through a difficult time, and I wanted to show her my appreciation.  I love the sentiment on my stamp:

     "If friends were flowers, I'd pick you!"

It really sums up our friendship.  

I've cut out a paperdoll at 3.5", used PKS Funshine Faces stamp, cut out the wedding dress on PDDU and highlighted it with my white gel pen.  I also cut out the flower strip from Plantin Schoolbook twice, once in green and once in pink and just cut off the flowers.  There's a bit of Pebbles Chalks to highlight my girl's cheeks, some metallic silver gel pen to give her earrings and a necklace, and some other metallic gel pen highlights.  The base of the card is a yellow/cream Bazzill Weave, with a background of Creative Memories Gazebo paper (it has a pale green soft pattern through it).

Hope you like it!
Deb. xoxo

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

Wishing a [belated] Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone in the blogisphere!

I haven't had much time for crafting this past couple of weeks, however, I was a very lucky girl on Christmas Day - here's what I got:

* ScorPal;
* Pink ATG Gun;
* 4 x packets of Glue Dots;
* Winter Lace Cricut Cartridge;
* Gypsy Magic & More DVD from PKS (ordered over Thanksgiving sale weekend, landed on my doorstep Christmas Eve!);
* 2 x sets of "Cheek Brushes" from PKS;
* 10 x different sets of PKS stamps (plus a bonus stamp!); and
* a $50 voucher to Scrappy-Go-Lucky - good thing they've got a sale on right now!!

Now if only I had time to do some crafting...
