Girl's Day Out with the Divas!

It's April 15th and time for another duel with the Dueling Darling Divas and Dazzlers.  We are two teams of gals who love to play with paper and assorted tools to make beautiful cards and other paper crafts.  Each month one member of each team plans a theme and creates a card kit for each of their team members.  Then on the 15th of the month we post our creations on our blogs and have a friendly "duel".  This month our hosts our Kadie for the Divas (my team!) and April for the Dazzlers.  Kadie's theme for the Diva's is
"Girl's Day Out" and the Dazzler's April chose "Girl's Night Out"....How fun!  Here's what Kadie included in her scrumptious kit:

Stamps:  My Favorite Things - A la mode "Polished to Perfection"
Papers: Crate Paper - "Oh Darling" and Bo Bonny - "Double Dot"
 Prima Flowers
 Crate paper, Oh Darling bowtie clothes pin
 My Mind's Eye, Now and Then brad
Eva Creative pearls
Doodlebug sequins
Dear Lizzy (by American Crafts) wood button
May Arts twine
Creative Co-op burlap ribbon
Papertrey ink ribbons

And here's my card:

I colored my image with Copic markers and added the pearls for drips of polish on the bottle.  I kept it pretty simple using one of the Crate Paper designer papers for the background and panels of the Bo Bunny dsp that weer embellished with ribbon and a Prima flower.

In Kadie's words: "Who doesn't like to spend some much needed quality time with her Besties!?  In addition to making your card, we would love for you to also share who your longest friend(s) is and perhaps your favorite thing to do with that person."  Oh, my!  I have more than one long time friend.  The closest long time friend is Barbara and we've been friends since high school, more than 50 years ago.  I was her maid of honor when she was married and she honored me by naming her youngest daughter after me.  We've shared many high points in our lives as well as the lows, celebrating birthdays and marriages together, as well as, comforting and providing the needed shoulder during illnesses and deaths of loved ones.  Simply my favorite thing to do with Barb is just visiting, chatting and catching up on one another's lives.
