Thanks a Bunch

This card was made using things given to me by my friends at work. Angela shared the Anya image with me and Allyson bought me that great paper. All I can say is that my life has been so blessed by getting to know these ladies through my job. Angela is a bad influence though, she is the one that started exploring blogs first and found all these amazing stamp companies. She is the one that bought Prisma markers first and let me try them, Copics came after that. She is also the one that has been encouraging me to try the digi stamps. Seriously though, she is a great friend that encourages me and has taught me so many new things. We are both a bad influence on Allyson! She is great too, always picking up things and sharing when she finds a good bargain. Such good friends really make work more fun. Anya was colored with Copic markers and then I went over the sunglasses and the flowers on the shorts with a Spica marker. The paper is from Paper Adventures and the flowers with the buttons are from Joliees. The "thanks a bunch" sentiment is from an old Friends stamp set from Provo Craft and was stamped with Memento ink, Rich Cocoa, I think is the name. I have a question for you: are you the bad influence in your group of crafting friends always finding the newest and greatest toys or are you the one that is influenced. or are you like me? Have a great night!

Great card, love the colors.
I do the influencing :), tho I am new, I learned quick of the things I like and things that I am not going to use. Just because every one gets a stamp and do gorgeous pictures doesnt mean I want it, I look at, is it pratical, how much use will I get from it? like my cuttlebug and nesties, I use all the time, good investment, stamps, how many ways can I use it?

Cute stuff Gina! I would say I'm half and half - but mostly influenced by others great stuff!

Such a fun card, Gina!! Everyone in my crafting group does their fair share of influencing...let's see what do I have to thank them for...Copics, ATG gun, farmyard $1 stamps from Michaels, and much more! But isn't it soooo great to have someone who gets the hobby you love!

Your card is so cute! What great friends you have.

I don't know if I'm a bad influence or not. I know I've turned a few people on to My Timeless Templates, but they are relatively cheap. Aren't we all bad influences by posting our cool stuff on our blogs? LOL
