Weren't yesterday's teasers awesome?! We're back with day two today and I'm telling you it's just as good :) Today we're showing you Jolinne - Catch a Star, Flopsey - Smooth Sailing, and Twisted Foursome. I'm showing you Twisted Foursome, but first, this:

  • The February Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm February 1st, with the hop also starting at Kim's Blog.
So, on to my card. When I saw this sentiment, "High maintenance" doesn't even begin to cover it..." I KNEW right then I'd have to use it. 'Cause see, that's me in that chair, LOL! I love my monthly pedicures and every other week nail appointments, plus my occasional spa day. And don't forget the hair ;-)


I stamped WTG from Girls Day In on a Perfect Paper Panel (temporarily out of stock) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and mostly paper pieced the image, with a little Copic coloring. I used the Faux Crochet Border Die-namics die on the card front edge, added some lace, ribbon, and some elegant blingy swirls to bring this card a little vintage feel. And the roses, made with the Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics die, finished it off.

This card is also for the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge for today. For all the details, check out the blog.

Here are the Copics I used.
