Thinking of You and Smiling


Good afternoon, friends!!  Thanks so much for letting me puff my feathers a bit yesterday.  I was just on top of the world about it all and bursting to tell everyone.  But now I’m excited about something else :)  It’s official and I can blurt it out now…I get to go to the PTI Stamp-a-faire next month in Cincinnati!!  ACK!!! My dear, dear blog friend, Lynn, has invited me down to visit and stamp our hearts out with the PTI design team, along with 198 other PTI fans, many of whom we probably know through our blogs!! It’s been in the works for a week now, but Lynn officially got the tickets yesterday within the 7 minute window they were on sale.  Whew!!  So now I can book my flight, update my passport and start packing.  ACK!!  Okay, onto today’s card.  I don’t have much time for stamping this week, but wowza…look at these Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger colours!! I couldn’t resist.  I was inspired by the colours, of course, and the idea of sewing…hence, the Material Girl paper, stitching, pinking border, buttons and delicious yellow gingham ribbon…which tastes like lemon if you were wondering :)  Have a wonderful day.  It’s been grey and cold here, but I am on such a high this week that it doesn’t matter!!  Thanks for letting me share my week of blessings :)  Hugs,



what’s in it?

Your sentiment matches these cheerful colors perfectly. LOVE the yellow gingham bow and jumbo scallops!

I think we need to start an official countdown! I am thrilled that you are coming! And...I'm putting a couple honey do items on the list for Pat before you get here!

Love the gingham ribbon on your card!

Woah! I thought we were on for another WaCCCky when I saw this bright li'l number, Diva! ;D
So happy that you're going on a fabulous inky adventure this summer (and yes, a tad jealous too!) I just know you and Lynn are going to have so much fun!
