Cool Girlfriend

Hello!  I spent my day off shopping with an old friend.  Boy did I come home with the goodies!  I found so many cute pairs of shoes and floral shirts, now I'm just ready for some warm weather so I can wear them!  I hear it's gonna be in the upper 50's this Sunday.  We'll see.  Anyway, I made this card awhile back for another friend, but because I had so much 'girlfriend fun' yesterday,  I thought I'd share this card today.  It just screams 'GIRLFRIEND' doesn't it?

The image is an old retired Stampin Up! set called, what else, but 'Girlfriends'.  I simply stamped the large image on the side of a white panel and colored her with Copics.  I added Stickles to her earrings and bag to glam her up a bit, then I sprinkled the card with pink sequin flowers and adhesive crystals.  The sentiment is a 3D sticker by K & Co.
 Here's a close up for you to see the embellishments better:
Yesterday, was the first day in years, I actually spent time with a girlfriend 'just having fun'.  I can't tell you how good it made me feel.  I'm away from my house 'working or commuting' a minimum of 50 hours a week, so when I have a day off I'm usually crafting, blogging, doing household chores, gardening, or just trying to 'catch up'.  Oh, and I am married, so I do have a husband that needs to see me once in awhile too.  Because of all that,  I really put my friendships on the back burner because I felt I didn't have time for them like I did when I was a SAHM.  I know when life gets crazy busy, you have to cut some things out because you can't do everything, but to cut out having fun with friends,  was a bad idea.  It was such a great stress reliever just to get out, talk, laugh, and enjoy life instead of always working, working, working.  Somehow, someway, I need to make time for more of this, even if it's just coffee or lunch once a month instead of an entire day.  I didn't make any New Years Resolutions this year, maybe this should be one?

Have a great day!  Amy
