Best Friends for life - Magnolia

Whew! I'm telling you this has been a busy, crazy last few weeks! I keep saying that, I know!  It's 9 p.m., I should be in bed reading my book, however I wanted to get this posted because I get antsy! hehe  Back to books, I am reading the series "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" I highly recommend it. What a great book. I am on book two now. Another great book is "The Help". Awesome!

This past weekend my husband and I had some us time and went to Orlando for the weekend. We went to Halloween Horror Nights on Thurs then on Friday we happened to be around I-Drive and there was a Zombie Fest. Oh my, that was interesting lol  Different, but very interesting. I tell ya. I'll post some pics after the card if anybody cares to see. ;-)  They actually stopped traffic on International Drive and walked it. These people really got into to. Some stayed in character the entire time. It was great.

Later that evening we went to Howl at the Moon. I love piano bars. It wasn't my favorite though. We use to have a great local one but it closed. Now there isn't anything around.  I love the one in Las Vegas at the Paris hotel, Napoleons. I can't remember the guys name, but he rocks. It could be that he is from my home of Ohio..hmm..;-)) By the way. GO BUCKEYES. They had a great game this weekend.

Now on to my card. I did buy this stamp, but it was on backorder. So I have to wait :-( So Sad. However, a good friend of mine was kind enough to give me a stamped image of it. :-))) I know it's called Brother and Sister however, when I first saw it, it reminded me of me and my husband. I thought it would make a PERFECT anniversary card. Unfortunately my anniversary isn't until May!! 12 yrs! ;-))  I made it anyways, not sure if I am going to sell this one or keep it until May..hrmm.

Isn't that qoute the sweetest???? When I saw it, I knew it would be perfect!

Inside - I thought it would be nice to circle the month and date on the little calendar thing. I didn't do it yet, because not sure if I am going to keep or sell.

So I colored the Maggie with Copic markers and the background is done with Prisma color pencils. Some of the shading on the dress is color pencils too. The paper is all from Close to my Heart. Trying to use up some of stashes. I have SOOOOO much CTMH paper. I printed the qoute and the sentiment. The little  "things that make me happy and the calendar" are all from the Notebook paper pack from CTMH. I distressed everything, because that's just how I roll. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

So here are some pictures from my Orlando Trip.
