A gift for my Best Friend Kat.

Happy New Year to all of my blogging sisters.. LOL  
I've been lucky enough to have a few days off from work and got to create this cute little 8x8 chipboard sign for my best friend Kat..  I seen one on Scrapbook.com, though a bit similar it wasn't exactly as this one.. The saying is the only thing that is the same!!  My best friend has a sick sense of humor, as do I and I know she will absolutely love this..LOL  Call it a house warming gift if you will, since she just moved..

 I used Graphic45 papers, prima flowers and pearls.. some lace ribbon and distress inks..
We dont' share the similar taste in style, so I hope she likes this.. Didn't want to make too girly girl or use bright colors, which I know it would not have gone with her decor..
and for a few close ups:
I fell in love with this quote.. I thougth it was soooooooo funny..LOL
I just noticed that I have miss placed one word..LOL DOH!.. need to fix that ASAP..
I used my computer to print the words, then cut them into small squares, inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink, glued em to the paper using Glossy Accents and then finally added some Matte Accents on top.. I absolutely love how it curled the edges.. Two thumbs up for Matte Accents..LOL
Who doesn't like Primas right?..
It did take me a while to find just the right flowers in the stash. I think these go perfectly with the color scheme of the sign..

well Ladies.. This was a quick project I was able to finish up yesterday and its going to be mailed out tomorrow.. I can't wait for her to see it and I wish I could be a fly on her wall to hear her get a chuckle out of it...
Thank you all so much for stopping by and taking look.. Hope everyone has wonderful and creative week and New year..
