something GIRLIE!

morning, folks! hope all is well in your respective necks of the woods!

life is very busy here, and i am preparing for a visit from my biffy this Thursday night. he'll be here for 10 days, and we have a lot of evenings planned! as usual, at least one of those evenings will be filled with crafty goodness, and he'll be making cards with me. ;) besides that, we have bowling, ice cream, sculptures, weird stuff, drinking, Quizzo, fabby dining and movies on the agenda, so it will be a jam-packed visit!

got to playing around a bit last night (i was STARVING after hubbin and i went jogging, and i had to get my mind off FOOD as it was already after 8 pm), and decided to jump in on a challenge or two. :) this one's totally girlie, which hasn't REALLY been my usual style of late, so it was nice to venture into unfamiliar territory. here we go.



the image is a freebie from my guest stint at Quirky Crafts, and i used a similar technique on my first card using that image (though this one's a little more, um... polished, i think).

so i was inspired by the Girly Girls challenge at Totally Papercrafts, because it was somewhat outside of my most recent comfort zone, and i am also playing along at Stampin' for the Weekend - their theme is Wings and Things. and last, but not least, the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week is an Anything Goes theme, so i think i'll throw my name in the hat over there, too!

have a wonderful Shoesday, friends, and i'll be back soon with more goodies to share! :D
