It's FRI-YAY!!

The weekend is HERE; are you ready? Any big plans? Anyone watching basketball - I LOVE March Madness and even though the tournament hasn't started yet; I still love watching all the tournaments leading up to Selection Sunday! #sportsaddict

I hope you've had a great week... It has taken me ALL WEEK to finish this card; I should have made a collage of all the gone wrong tries - HA! I saw an idea that was 2-sided designer paper where you fold the bottom back at the middle to create a little peek-a-boo area (triangle), but I didn't want to use 2-sided paper (note to self, you probably should have used 2-sided paper) but live and learn! I created a one layer piece instead with no designer paper; I masked off a triangle at the bottom and used MFT's Circle Burst stencil and sponged on Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick - then proceeded to cover up the center of the burst where the Spun Sugar was concentrated.

So yes, you see my issues? LOL That's okay; I still love the finished card and YES, I'm using the WPlus9 Doodle Buds set AGAIN! BUT notice anything different? What have I been whining about the last umpteen times I've used this set? THE DIES, I now own the dies - ahhh...sigh of contentment! And I used faux water color using Zig Clean Color Brushes again - throw down some color, add some water and let it dry then stamp away - love how easy it is. I added a bit of shading, lots of clear wink of stella and white polka dots. The blessed was cut from MFT gold card stock and layered with fun foam. I added a decorative inside with one more bloom I had left over. Perfect card for a dear friend!

Hope you have a great weekend; take care; hope to see you again soon!
