Let's go to the spa!

See this card? This would be me tomorrow :) Yep, I have a day at the spa scheduled as a reward for getting everything ready on time for my open house on Sunday. I have a facial, a massage, nails, pedicure, and hair cut/color scheduled and I can't wait! I did the same thing last year and it was a real treat--I think I'll make it a tradition ;-) I'm going to use this card for my nail tech's Christmas gift. The image is from My Favorite Things' Girl's Day In and doesn't WTG look like she's enjoying herself? I'm so looking forward to being in her place, LOL! This set is currently sold out but Kim tells me she has more on the way. So keep checking back--it usually doesn't take long to get sets back in stock. There are actually two WTG images in this set--the other one shows her getting a manicure. Too cute, is this set!

I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and mostly paper pieced it, with the small amount of coloring done with Copic markers. The patterned paper is from DCWV Whimsy Mat Stack. I think the rest is pretty self explanatory, if not shoot me an email if you have a question.

Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow is Stamp Simply day and Sharon's got a fabulous challenge for you--it's sure to help you knock out all the Christmas cards you still need to do!
