yahoo! today is my friday at work and then tomorrow
 i get us all ready for our road trip from the 4th to the 7th!!

                                                               4 days with hubby
                                                               3 memory cards for camera
                                                               2 wheels to travel on
                                                               1 highway heading north
                                                               0 electronics
                                                               = priceless :) 

have no idea where we will end up as we like to take it 
as it comes. all we do is choose a direction and go :) 
that's the way we roll lol

we are to create a card using our blog header as inspiration

well that was easy for me as mine has a cat! lol
my blog colors are grey, pink, and turquoise
and i used a pre-made chevron card base for my cat.

Three Cool Chicks "Let's Get Trendy" day three is Stencils

i used an old (from the 90's) stencil. cut one out and used 
the copy machine to reduce the size so it fit on my card.
and used that for my stencil to cut out the cat.
then i attached it to dark gray su cardstock and cut it out so 
it would have a shadow. added a pearl necklace, and used some
stamps form TAWS for the clear embossed hearts and sentiment.

pre-made textured card base, su oval punches, TAWS : Alphabet Soup for the sentiment, Kitchen Gadgets for the hearts.
