always friends

the latest challenge at a blog named hero is awesome! i love color challenges!! and this one is even more fun since it's their logo! 

who doesn't love those colors together, right?

so here's my take:

i used the 'life of the party' stamp set for the main images, and the jungle-y set 'cl155' for the sentiment (which is heat embossed). i started off this card with a birthday theme in mind...but you know how things happen! :) most of my good friends are all over the country, so anytime i get a chance to give a nod to being close to friends, who aren't close in proximity, i'm going to do it! :)

my favorite part of the card is the candy i used as a bow tie and bow! i think adding bows/bow ties to images is on my new favorite things to do! it's a good thing i don't have a hero arts mustache set, that's all i'm saying!! :)

so, i added glitter to jazz up the card - sometimes i have a hard time telling myself when to stop with the glitter...the original plan was to just glitter their freckle-y cheeks...oops.

anyway, that's that! time to convince my hubby to set up my expedit from ikea...SO EXCITED! we'll see if he sets it up, if so, i'll post some before (scary!!) and after pictures!
enjoy your weekend!
