Girls' night out

Well I seem to be up and running again, but please, if you get emailed when somebody leaves a comment on your blog, will you check your spam folders from time to time to see whether I have commented, as Blogger seems to think my new email address is spammy and is marking it as such - even emails I send to myself!

Anyway, up and at 'em, I've actually managed to find time to make a card - it was getting pretty urgent as it is for a friend whose birthday is next week. Don't worry, she won't see this, she doesn't read my blog!

The background uses an embossing folder from a recent issue of Papercraft Essentials, covered in pale blue ink before embossing to give a faux letterpress effect. The sentiment is a SoSuzy stamp - the grammar may be questionable but the sentiment is very true, especially of this friend with whom I have a 30+ year history of over-consumption!!!
The image of three besties is stamped with a recent Making Cards freebie that has become one of my most used stamps, which may say a lot about my friendships... I coloured it with Promarkers, again sticking to shades of blue as it is my friend's favourite colour - except when it comes to wine, when it's red all the way for her.

I am sharing this with
Shopping Our Stash - crazy for colouring
Stamping Sensations - Something beginning with B -   blue, black, bubbles, besties
Watercooler Wednesday - feminine anything goes
