Its a Happy Day...

For 2 reasons! One...Its Karen's Birthday! So be sure to hop over to her blog and send her some love! Here is a picture of us at Cheers when i went to visit her:) Karen is a super friend and its all her fault i am addicted to paper crafting ;) She has taught me everything i know!! Thanks karen!! Hope you have a great day! Now you have to see what everyone else has done:)

Karen please don't kill us, we love you:) hugs!

The next reason is today i am at a wedding in Toronto! My friend Krista is getting married to a great guy Shawn. Its a cute story...they dated in highschool, broke up..and after years apart they reconnected again! I stole this picture from facebook:) I met Krista through pen palling! We wrote for years and always met up at concerts and Canada's Wonderland! We now see each other a couple times a year! She rocks and i wish her and Shawn the best!

Now onto the card! I made this card a few weeks ago but couldn't post it because Krista is a follower of my blog! hee hee Now you are probably wondering what is up with the colours...well when i asked Krista what her colours were she told me hot pink with orange accents! So i had to make a card that matched!!

I bought hitchedafellabella for this card (a long time ago mind you). I coloured them with my copics and used my spica glitter pen on the suit cuffs and collar. I used Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the dress i think it would have been too blah without the glitter!

The paper is Basic black and PTI white. The dsp is My Minds Eye (orange) Bloom and Grow, and American Crafts (pink) Teen series.

The ribbon is Paper Source Ribbon (fushia), i love it so much that this is the first time i have used it since i bought it in Boston! I would be sad if i used it all up!

I cut them out with nesties and stamped always (small script SU) with memento black ink.
I wanted to use flowers somewhere on the card, but i think its perfect the way it is!

Oh this is a Sweet Sunday Sketch too! But i don't think i saved it on my computer. It was #20!

I sure do hope they like it!! :)

I will report on the wedding later!! :)



  1. Well done, Janet! Love the story of your friends. Their colors are interesting! Very different. You did an excellent job on the card! And yes, the dress needed your little sparkly accents! It makes it look almost 3D - like you can touch it! Have fun today!

  2. Love it! Great colors. Your friend has good taste.

  3. I LOVE your card, those are 2 of my fave colors together.
