TGIF!! FWF Friday :)

Yippee!  it's Friday!  I'm sure I always seem excited for Fridays.  I had an amazing time last weekend at the Creating Keepsakes convention in Buffalo - learned some new techniques, and bought way too much product ;)  This weekend, I am so looking forward to Sunday afternoon, as I am taking a mixed media class with DONNA DOWNEY!!!  whoooo hoooo!!! Ideally, I should be posting something using one of her Unity Stamps, but I didn't have anything created (don't worry, I'm sure I'll have lots to share for the upcoming weeks, as this class is supposed to create a 40 page journal using a slew of techniques).  Today's card I created for my sister, and bought this Phyllis Harris stamp set, as it reminded me of her.  We are only a year and a half apart, but I moved to a different province almost 15 years ago, and I really miss her.
Sorry for the blurry picture ~ my next splurge will be on a proper light box so I can take better pictures of my creations.  Have a great weekend everyone :)

FWF Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!!!

It has been a really busy couple of weeks at work, so I'm so glad it's Friday.  Also, next weekend I am off to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Buffalo ~ whoop, whoop!!!  I noticed there is also a big convention this weekend in Novi, MI ~ wish I had seen it sooner ~ but it's now on my radar for next year :)

Today's card was made for a girlfriend of mine who just completed her first half-marathon.  I used a Unity SOTW - love this butterfly :)  Although adding the pearls for the body, made the card just bulky enough that it cost me double postage to send it ~ no worries though :)

Have a great weekend!
