Texting BFF's

Welcome back!  It's a birthday card today for a thirty-something friend.  She's very "into" her phone so I thought this card would be fun for her.
 
 
The girls are Art Impressions "Texting BFF's".  I colored with Copics on X-Press It Blending card and sprinkled a few sparkly Nuvo Crystal drops around.  Hand cut the sentiment flag and punched a flower.
 
I sped through the coloring rather quickly and I see some blending corrections that need fixed.  Funny how you don't always notice those things until after you see the photo.  I'm in a rush now, so no time to be picky.  I'll just have to fix it later.  It's a myth that you'll have all the time in the world when you're retired, sheesh.
 
I hope you enjoyed just stopping by and looking.  It's kinda fun to see some fresh colors this time of year, isn't it?  I'll pop in Friday with some Christmas cards.  Take care!
 
 
Stamps:  Art Impressions Texting BFF's  Paper:  X-Press It Blending card, other white for card base, Echo Park Creative Agenda designer paper  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics for coloring  Accessories:  Sherbet Shimmer Nuvo Crystals, flower punch, Taylored Expressions Rectangle Stacklets

Wonderful card, and fabulous papers! This reminds me of our "girlfriend" monthly meeetings. We all have iPhones and iPads, and sometimes we need help figuring out new things, etc. So we stop stamping and begin messing with tech stuff to learn, and then back to stamping LOL! LOVING the darling-ness and endearing quality of this card, Leslie! hugs, de

This is just spot on for most people now days, isn't it? Everyone is so involved in their devices, they forget how to talk face to face! LOVE it! Perfect stamps, perfect paper, perfect card! I am actually to the spot I may be able to make a card this week! When I looked at the stacks of packing boxes in every room this weekend, I didn't think that would happen for months! I'm LOVING the new place!

Fabulous card for your friend. Great papers and layout, and of course your colouring is always top notch. I don't see any flaws, I think we are all to critical of our own work. Love your finishing details with the flag sentiment and flower. I know she will love it!

That is going to be just perfect for your friend, LOVE it! Well must be your trained eye because I don't see any problems with it :) That always happens with me, I see so much in pictures that I don't see in real life, isn't it funny how our brains work.

As always, every detail is perfect, Leslie! Love the background papers, and your coloring needs no touching up. :) Love the little flower on the sentiment.
