Cards from BFF and SaddleBrooke Friend
It's Friday my Blogger Friends and once again.....My plate is totally FULL for this upcoming weekend. Today three friends and I are heading up to Hobby Lobby and will probably end up doing lunch together.....I'm seriously looking forward to our road trip and just know that we will laugh - and share - and find some real buys while up to Hobby Lobby. I'm just hoping that I can get all the things that are on my plate - done this weekend. BUT....for today.....I have two cards to share with you and figure we should just jump right in....... First up is (another.....) card from my BFF - this time she made me this fabulous card that not only is beautiful to look at....but the inside message made me SMILE! She used her scoreboard to add three lines across her Coord-a-nation card stock and because this cardstock has a white core to it......the three lines appear white when done from the inside of the card.....FABULOUS IDEA NO? She added a sweet Thank You message to the front of her card and added four sparkly blings to the centers of the flowers. Check them out ........ Jan seriously has this ability to make every card she creates a Work-of-Art! Her message on the inside of her card is what stole my heart.....Her stamp said....."you're a real gem! Hope your day shines". Now how fitting is that for the inside of this card? Jan doesn't stop at just buying a stamp - she works hard to coordinate all the pieces together and once again she master her talent with this card. Thanks Jan for your amazing card. Next up is a sweet little card I received from the SaddleBrooke Hospitality Group when I was sick at the beginning of the year. As the chair for that committee, Opal sent me this card which was made by Judy Conklin. Talk about making you feel better when your feeling down...this card totally works it number on me! What I love about this card is that it's not your every day "Get Well" card - and I love that the SaddleBrooke Stampers were thinking of me when I was not feeling my best back in February. I am truly blessed to have so many talented and thoughtful friends here in SaddleBrooke....I realize that every day - but even more when I sit back and look at the many cards I receive from my friends here in Arizona. Thank you all for caring about me and sharing all your beautiful cards with me too. I treasure each of them as a piece of art and have them proudly displayed in my upper cabinet of my Studio. Hope you can join me tomorrow when I'll begin to share the 10/10/20 stamp camp cards I made at Di Gibbs studio last weekend. Keep Living Your Dream!
