Happy Friday!

I love Fridays!! And to celebrate, I made a card! Of course, this can also dual-purpose as a birthday card, but whatever! Let's just celebrate that it's Friday. :)


Now this card was just a ton of fun to make. I wanted to make the background interesting, but also match my little happy dino. I embossed a piece of old olive cardstock with a Cuttlebug folder (I can't remember the name) and then sprayed it with the new Shimmerz Spritz in Baby's Breath. SUPER cool effect! I also put some Crystal Effects randomly over the little bumps. This card just sparkles and shines...you gotta have that for a celebration, right?!

Here's a closeup to really see that shine!

The image is from H&M Stamps, and remember that you can still purchase all sets for only $8 and under!! This garage sale lasts through this month, but I hear sets are selling quick!

On an unrelated sidenote, I have begun counting Weight Watcher points again as I have been 5 pounds over my goal for a while now!! Anyone else out there with me? Weight Watchers has really worked for me and I'm already down this week. I just hope I can last through the weekend. Those weekend snacks/cocktails just blow it for me, LOL!

Happy Friday!!

PS...any tasty Weight Watchers recipes out there you can share? Once I hit my goal, they lock me out of all the nice online stuff (dumb move, in my opinion). How are we supposed to maintain our goal weight when they lock us out of all resources once we've hit it?! DUMB!

What a cute idea! I love the random crystal effects idea - it makes it look so realistic!
By the way, I also love all the teacher gifts below. Such cute ideas!
Congrats on meeting your weight watchers goal - I agree that's kind of stupid to lock you out of the good recipes!

I love the background on this card. The CE is perfect to add just the extra....and the spritz, I'll have to check that stuff out, very cool.
