The mani-pedi was awesome with a slice of key lime pie!

Created by Courtney #36 CBCC

I base most of my fashion taste on what doesn't itch too!!!
This is for a flowers theme at CBCC
The paper is Urban Rhapsody K & Company and Urban Prairie Basic Grey
The little doll in the rose is Lisa's Altered Art.  I got my order today and there were as many freebies in the package as images I ordered!  Wow.  What a treat.  And, I was gone when the mail man came and he slid them under my door.  My mailman usually would have taken the mail back to the Post Office and had me pick them up myself.
The quote is from Gilda Radner
This card is for 365 cards Day #66

The Quote theme for the week is a real challenge.  I love it!!!
Today's quote is I am here, you are there.

The images are Lisa's Altered Art
Hero Arts Alphabet stamps on Color Bok Word balloons, heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The paper is Urban Rhapsody from K & Company, again.
This card is actually from a sketch.  

I turned the sketch from i c sketches #15 into a bug.  I hope they don't mind, but that is all I could see with the flourishes coming out of the circle, I saw antennae.
The alphabities letters are stuck on another Color Bok Word Balloon.  The rest is crazy cut out of more Urban Rhapsody Paper.

And I am spent.  My manicure and pedicure was awesome.  My nails are now bright orange, and my big toenails have little flower gem stickers on them.  How fun.  And the pedicure of the month, at ASHA salon Spa where I go for all my beauty needs, was Key Lime Pie...Which meant, I got to eat Key Lime Pie while getting my nails painted and legs massaged.  I am a fairy princess.  Goodnight, bloggers, wherever you are!
