February 23

Hooray for Saturday!!
Are you in the mood for something fun?
How about a parade?
Wait, how about a Girl Friday Virginia parade??

She has been getting inky up to her elbows, and wow does she have 
some outstanding creations to share with you today!
Sit back, relax and enjoy the Virginia show!!

First up is a wonderful set of cards using

She has managed to make the brushstroke look like waves!
She simply stamped it in a random pattern using different colors of blue.
Awesome!


So simple and so stunning!  
I love how she scored the edges of the cardfront to add a subtle frame.
One layer beauty!!

This took my breath away! The brushstroke looks amazing 
with this water color technique, and the little random gems are perfection!

Have you ever scene sand art? 
You know where they layer in different colors of sand in a bottle?
This card totally reminds me of that!
So pretty and so simple!

Next up, she's got one from

Hello beautiful beanstalks embossed in gold!
This is just stunning, and the little gems on the ribbon are a fabulous touch!

Last up is a card she created using

Be still my heart!
I love the fun swipes of ink with the dot pattern on top!
How did she do that?
Is it a clear resist? Did she emboss it in white?
Be sure to stop by her blog to find out how she created that fabby border.


Enjoy your weekend!
