fabulous friend

Warning...some non stamp ramblings here: I had my Stamp Club meeting this morning and so I haven't been able to spend a lot of time with Shawn yet. He was the sweetest to take the kids swimming while I was busy even though he was soooo tired! He is taking a quick nap and then we are all gonna hang out! Wanna hear something super fun!! Shawners bought me a gift while he was Indonesia, he was in Jakarta. He bought me a GORGEOUS pearl necklace and pearl earrings! I feel sooo spoiled! They are beautiful!! I am already wearing the earrings!! I feel so pretty!
Ok, ok...enough gushing...on to card schtuff! This card was simple...the layout was from the 2 Sketches 4 You design team call they had. I love, love, love this sketch...I am definitely going to try my hand at this one again! I used the retired hostess set Event Full. The heart is from Boatloads of Love. I used crystal effects on all the hearts. I added some pink dew drops and the silver hardware (see I am getting better at not hoarding!) I used my color spritzer with a regal rose marker on the white paper. Oh and my circle nestabilities die for the scalloped circle.
