Girls Weekend!

I am so excited!!! Tomorrow afternoon I am heading out of town for the weekend. It is a total girls weekend. It has been such a busy couple of months and I haven't been able to do any scrapbooking for myself. I guess I shouldn't say that because I have done a few things. It feels like I do so much for the store and I really want to just do things for my own books.

I am going to be with two very special friends. One I see every day, but spend very little time with and the other lives too far away to see as often as I would like. I made them each a very special card to kick off our weekend. I know they will both love them and it makes me very happy to give them.

I guess this means that I started scrapbooking a bit early. I really enjoyed making them. I used scraps from a kit that I put together for the store. I also had a stamp set I really wanted to try.
They are basically the same on the front.

I found a really cute 'purse' stamp and I knew it would be perfect for both of them. I used my watercolour pencils to add colour, which I hadn't done for a very long time. The inside is stamped with the words Fun!, Girls, is perfect. I hope they don't check my blog or it will spoil the surprise.

I can't wait to give them away.
