A "CHEER UP"" KIND OF CARD!!

Hi there ladies how are you?? How was your Wednesday?? Halfway thru the week guys!! Just a few more days until the NEW DT is announced for The Greeting Farm & Club Anya too!! Hope you got your ceations in!!! Good luck to you all!! It will be a TOUGH decision, that's for sure!!! So MUCH talent out there!!! You all are AWESOME!!!
Ok.....so I talked to one of my friends,yesterday, and she seemed kind of down. She just wasn't herself, ya know? I am sure you all have been there! Right? And ... you probably could have used a little pick me up, huh?? Well....a pick me up, she shall get!!! Last night I set to work on something to lift her spirits and let her know I was thinking of her!! I wanted to use my NEW Light Up Set, from TGF!! I had to get this set, because I felt it would be truly versatile!! Anyway, I had an idea in my head, which took a bit to create. I was more than a tad frustrated, I must admit!!! I was not even sure if it would make it to my friend. I considered starting over!! I first used my Copic & Prisma markers, together, to color in the image. I REALLY liked the color I produced, by blending them. However, I just couldn't match the paper!! You know me....it HAS to flow!! Sometimes I think I am TOO picky!! Haha! To make a LONG story short,for your sake, I ended up going BACK over the COOL blended color. I HAD to , in order for it to "JUST GO", and complement the other colors involved. The other issue I had was putting the bling on. I usually have NO issue, in this department. Last night was nerve racking, I ended up using super glue to adhere them and MAN, what a MESS!! I was still peeling glue off my fingers today!! I FINALLY had it to where it was acceptable, but, I was not sure wether to share it with you all or not! Thanks to my GREAT friend Janna, I decided to! She encouraged me to go ahead! So....here it is!! Thank you SO much Janna!! I hope you all like it!! I REALLY hope she likes it and that it will CHEER her up!!! That's what really matters most, now doesn't it! I think next time I use this set....I will have to paper piece it!!! I have seen it used in that way and it looked BEAUTIFUL!!!
Don't forget to check in over at Javablustamper & Friends, for the latest challenge and PRIZE!!! This time around the PRIZE is a BELLA STAMP!!!! Thanks for reading my WHOLE, LONG drawn out story!!! You guys are THE BEST!!!! So glad you stopped by to share with me!!! Hope to see you next time!!! ENJOY LIFE!!!!
