Need A Friend!?

Happy Wednesday to you all!  How are you all doing?  Can you remind me of my name again?  I think I may have forgotten LOL....that's caused from too much stress and too much to do this week oy!  And it doesn't get any better goin' into the weekend either.  Alexa's birthday is tomorrow (the big 17) and we are headed to Baltimore to celebrate.  Then Friday she's having a sleepover AND I have to have Riley at mall by 7 pm to meet the Washington Capitals hockey players.  Then Saturday we head to FedEx field for the Redskins Spring-Draft Event and then he's having friends over Saturday night.  And Sunday we will finish it up with a Nationals baseball game in DC LOL.  For those that say they would love to hang out with me...well you change your mind yet?? hee hee

Soooooo no down time for this girl....hubby asked wanted I wanted for my birthday next week and I said PEACE & QUIET LOL.  Well and the Tiffany silver earrings I really want...hee hee...every girl should get a Tiffany blue box once in their lifetime right?  I figure my 39th is a good time for one since its my last birthday.....I shall stay 39 for the next 6 years AT LEAST ;)  So there ya if you email and it takes me awhile to email you back OR I email you blibbery-bloo that makes NO sense...well I warned ya ahahahahaha!

Starting Friday we will kick off the 4 days of festivities and specials on classes and more!
Come join the Birthday Group HERE to keep up with the festivities....schedule of events will be up tomorrow night so you can prepare ;)


Need A Friend?

Today is Wee Wednesday at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and I got a cutie to share with you all!  I have to say that this Wee Stamp "Goldie" by Whimsey Stamps/Sylvia Zet is my FAVE of them all....I love mermaids and her and her lil' friend are so CUTE I CAN'T STAND IT!!  I created a fun Circle Easel card for this one (see an easy tutorial for it here)...I wanted to mix it up a bit (that's code for I was bored with the square cards LOL).  And I pulled some oldie but goodie papers by Basic Grey out...its of my faves from years ago.  This pic shows pretty well the shimmer mist by Maya Roads on the white doily accent...its copper colored and makes a nice shimmery accent me thinks :)  You can see the other DT gals Wee Wednesday projects at the Challenge Blog HERE and join in on our current Tuesday Challenge too. 

**Come see the 49 NEW Memory Box Dies that Magnolia-licious got in...they are on SALE thru Thursday so come load up...I love them all...sighhhhh LOL **
NEW DEAL OF THE DAY....every day Magnolia-licious will have a DEAL on the HOME Page of the store...for 24 hours you will get a certain product or stamp for a HUGE make sure to check those out!

This card has a TON of layers...I ain't gonna lie LOL...I loaded it up.  The large circles I cut out on my Silhouette Cameo then started using my SB nesties for the smaller circles & scalloped circles.  The white doily was done on my Cameo as well.  The gray swirls are a new Memory Box die "Val Flourish" and then I also accented with some tulle.  The flowers are by Prima that I layered and mixed up a bit.  The orange cs I inked with white Palette Ink to soften the brightness a bit.  The glass accents are Bella Baubles.

Entering this into the following fab challenges:

Goldie was colored with Copics: YR18,YR16,YR01,Y15,YR20 / E11,E00,R11/ C9,C7,C5,C3,C1 / BG01,B000.  I added Diamond Glaze to the bubbles and then sprinkled in Glamour Dust to give it a suspended sparkle!

The sentiment is from Verve Stamps and it says "The only way to have a friend, is to be one"...I love that and its so true.  I love my BFFs and friends so much for always being there for me, listen to me whine on occasion, yell on occasion, laughs and giggles and so much friends mean a lot to me and I hope they all know I'm here for them too!!

Ok, I'm off and running today....lots to get done and do before baby girl is gonna be 17 sniff sniff!  Have a goody!
