Friendship, Coffee & Hairspray!




I must say that every time I come across this fabulous "say it like it is" sentiment from Crafty Secrets it brings a smile to my face.  I just love its fun, no nonsense approach to life.  I created this card based on The Play Date Cafe's colour combination this week showcasing Mint, Soft Yellow, Coral, and Tulip.  These colours are most probably used best in the hands of a less grubbier crafter than mine, but I couldn't resist the lure of this pretty as a picture pastel palette.  It's only that I understand my crafty shortcomings all too well when it comes to doing "pretty and unspoilt"'.   That's why I added that wee pearl earring as a nod to all things pristine and prepossessing.  Maybe one day, I'll clean up my crafting act...just maybe.  *wink*

Thanks a mega bunch for visiting and here's to a beautiful day for us all!  See you anon.

LOL - what a cute sentiment. I do love those old time girl images. And you have something going on every single layer, diecut, embossing, inking. Always something with you! - love it!

What a fun card, and I love the sentiment. I would be a bad friend because I like week coffee so I can drink it all day. :)
