Fiesta Friday!

Ok, I live near San Antonio Texas, and it is Fiesta week here. It is pretty much all you see, hear, and feel in this town. So I felt like I needed to at least give one "Viva Fiesta" even though I don't attend the parties, the parades or the festivals. Ok now to business!

I had fun with my card for today. It is for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog. This week they have the theme of "Girls Just Wanna have Fun". Well my girl is a country girl and she has her fun on her pony! This High Hope stamp is just too cute, and this week I did her up all in lime green and pink. Now we all know Rodeo girls wear sparkles and bling anywhere they can, so after coloring her and her pony with my Copic markers, I added some of that bling with my Spica Glitter pens. I have tried to show a close up of this, sometimes it is very hard to photograph and you miss it, but I just love these pens... they add so much! I stacked up Bazzil card stock in two shades of pink and lime green. The pattern paper is again from DCWV Nana's Kids. I have really been using that paper lately! The "ribbon" is also a piece of the same Nana's Kids paper, I cut a stripe and edged with my Sakura Glaze pens added stitching on everything. Those fabulous flowers are from Prima. I am running so low on these large flowers I have to get more soon! The center is a stamp from Aud Designs Circle Sentiments. That I colored with Copics as well. I think it is pretty darn girlie!




Well today is friday and I have a ton to do, I have a Card Class to teach tomorrow afternoon so I need to get that all together, and need to do some housework, "yuck".
Rosie is doing so much better I think she is almost back to herself. Thanks so much for all the well wishes, I know they help!
