Oh Snap! It's 5 o'clock Somewhere

Hi everybody!

A good friend of mine has bailed me out of a couple of pretty important things.  She thinks it's nothing but it is everything to me.  I made her this thank you card, etched a glass and gave her a couple of bottles of wine that she likes to drink when she is at my house.  She told me I can (________)  (what I did) anytime because she says I outdid myself and can make her something anytime. How sweet is that?  No, I can't tell you what I did, sorry LOL! 

I used the Stamping Bella stamp called Opal the Optimist for the image.  This image comes with a sentiment that says, May Your Glass Always Be Half Full but I used the sentiment It's 5 o'clock somewhere from the Stamping Bella set called Madison has a Margarita.  These are both from the Uptown Girls collections which I think are so stinkin' cute. There is one to fit just about any occasion. 

I used Slate Gray card stock from Close To My Heart and patterned paper from Color Crush by American Crafts.  This is such a cute paper pad!  I bought a Heidi Swapp glittered paper 20 sheet pad at Michaels for $3.99.  I used the pink, silver and turquoise from this.  It isn't card stock, it's flimsy glitter paper but it's cuts great with my Fiskar cutter and in the Big Shot.  I used the My Favorite Things Die-namics die called Stitched Circle Frames.  I love these because you can use the center circle that punches out or the outside ring like I used here on the out and insides.  Very cool I think.  I colored her with copic markers and sponged around her and the ribbon banner in Papertrey Ink called Hawaiian Shores. 

I used a Lawn Fawn die called Scripty Thanks and cut out the turquoise glitter paper.  I used Silhouette Adhesive Paper with the die so that it had a sticky back when I cut it.  Guaranteed to stick!!!  I love this adhesive paper for dies now.   I used a Close To My Heart Sparkle Flourish below the Thanks sentiment.  These are great, come in a pack of different sizes, great for when you need a little more than a couple of gems. 

I hope you liked this card.  These stamps are fun and quick to color.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
