Let's Go Shopping!

Happy Saturday to you!  I hope that you have a relaxing weekend that's filled with lots of fun and crafting time :D  Tonight I'm attending a wedding.  The dress I wore to the last wedding I went to was the same dress I wore to another wedding two years earlier.  I'll give you one guess to tell me which dress I'm wearing tonight lol!  But here's the question... will it actually fit???  It was pretty tight last time... I'm hoping I'm hoping I'm hoping... I'll let you know how it goes : )

Yesterday I went shopping with my sweet friend, Vickie.  If you need a good friend who makes you laugh, who is always there for you, and is completely trustworthy... you'll want a friend like Vickie.  God has blessed me with her friendship and love in ways that I could only dream of... truly a God-send friend :D  I hope that you have at least one person in your life that you can share your heart with!

I dedicate my card today to you, Vick...  I thank you and love you with all my heart!!! Let's laugh away the pounds again real soon!

This is an adorable digi by Di's Digi Downloads called Shopping Bear.  She's for the Girly Creations Challenge at Digi Designs Challenge Blog.

I've used copics to color her:  V17 V15 V12 V01; B97 B95 B93 B91; E49 E59 E35 E34 E33 E31 E30 R20.  I was pleased to see that the pearls I made using Viva Decor Paper Pen in Lilac was a pretty good match for this card.

She needed some bling, so I gave her dress and some of the shopping bags two coats of Ice Crystal Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE Glamour Dust Paint!  It paints on easy and the glitter doesn't get everywhere!!!  AND you can use it on digi's (unlike Stickles which makes the ink bleed and ruins the image cuz it all ends up looking black!).

A single Wild Orchid flower, encased by a decorative rhinestone corner piece gives a bit of an elegant blingy feel : )  The double charms in the lower corner and white tulle were given to me by a sweet crafty friend... Thank you, Tammy - mwah!!!  This card is being reserved for YOU!

I used a punch around the page set by M.S. with dp by My Mind's Eye, A Beautiful Life.  So what do you think?
