Just a Note

I had the BEST weekend!! Laurie, Barb, Eva and I traveled to Amy's house and we spent the weekend shopping and stamping!  I finished 9 cards (and trashed several attempts too!!)! :)  We had so much fun together!! We try to get together a few times a year and I'm already looking forward to the next one!  I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends who enjoy stamping/papercrafting!   We also got to meet up with Jinny Newlin for dinner at Bo Lings (WONDERFUL Chinese!!)!  How much fun to meet another stamping friend!

I'll be sharing some of the cards I made with you over the next few days, although some are for special posts at a later date.

This card was one of my favorites (that I can show you now anyway)! 


I've had this tree set, Funky Foliage, from WPlus9 for a while now and I can't believe that it didn't see ink until this weekend!  Let me tell you, there are so many possibilities with this cute set!  I used my Stella & Rose patterned papers to paper piece the trees.


I love, love, love that sentiment!  That is from Kim Hughe's Sentiment Sampler set.  I think I used that sentiment set on the majority of my cards this weekend.  So. Fun!  The bottom border stamped on PTI's Ocean Tides paper is from PTI's Retro Background set.  Another great set!

I'm going to keep this post short tonight because I have tons to get caught up on and have to get to bed soon!  Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed the card! Have a great day!

Supplies
Stamps: WPlus9 Funky Foliage, PTI BB: Retro, Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
Paper: Stella & Rose, Basic Grey (for the grass), Ocean Tides, Kraft

Oooo! All those patterned papers are absolutely scrumptious, Jen! LOVE your use of Funky Foliage! It was so fun to meet you, too! Thanks for sneaking me in to your scrappy weekend! Oh! And I told my hubby about your brother, but as always, I couldn't remember his name.
