Hey everyone, sorry for the little vacation I've been on but it has been a whirlwind of excitement going on. Let me get to it because I am simply bubbling on the inside. I went to a beauty spa and got my very first introduction to dermabrasion and laser genisis rejuvenation, and I tell you I had to fight to keep from snoring (I kid you not)! It was so theraputic and relaxing...wow was all I could say as I relaxed and enjoyed.
 
Now the facial detoxication wasn't much fun but then the gentle massage started and I was in heaven.  Later, the mist followed and it was so soothing...but the winner was the laser rejuventation.  It felt like warm rain-drops falling gently all over my face. Oh it was simply the best ever! In fact I am going back real soon.  That was my birthday and Christmas gift combination from my family and it was worth every penny.
 
Did I mention that when it was over, my skin was smoother and felt softer.  There was less wrinkles and my jaw line was just a bit more taught..not extreme but a subtle difference...enough for me to schedule another appointment.  I might just be hooked on this beauty business.
 
My visit was with Timeless Beauty By Renee of Plano, Texas. Her techniques are not only designed to relax they also create timeless beauty over time...might be too late for me but I will just have to test it and see...if nothing else I'll have the best massge ever!
 
Anyway afterwards my friend and I left feeling like a million dollars and proceeded home where I had a small cocktail and created the card I am now going to share with you.
 

To create this card I used regular cardstock and Spellbinders Decorative Label 8.  I stamped the image using Tim Holtz Weathered Wood distress ink.

Next I used Decorative Labels 8 to add the embossing behind the image.  I positioned the die so that most of the embossing showed up in the corners and then I rounded the corners.

Lastly I mounted the layers using mini brads to keep everything in place.  To add a bit of snowy shimmer I added shimmering glitter (could have used glitter glue as well but I couldn't find what I wanted). The techniques and design used to create this card came from a lady by the name "Deneen"...thanks to her.
 
I hope you enjoy this card and if you get a chance go get a professional and beauty facial.  You won't regret it...but don't go for the cheapest...go for the best! 
 
Thanks for stopping by.....
