CTS72 - Thanks so much


Another one for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.



This time, I used my PTI Circle Cover Plate die both to cut the circles and then to place them (I used the negative 'lattice' that was left over and just popped the circles inside for a perfect line-up! This is my smallest little 'thanks' and I'm afraid I lost track of who made it. The 'so much' is a Stampin' Up sentiment from Trendy Trees.

Yesterday was Scrapfest in Kitchener. Tracey McNeely and I drove there and met Virginia Lu to spend some time chatting and looking around to see what was what!


Tracey and I wandered into a booth where they were featuring CAS-ual Stamps and doing make-and-takes. We couldn't resist announcing that we are Girl Fridays and the reaction from the instructor was AMAZING! She was so thrilled to see us there and just couldn't say enough about the great products and the great support they had received from Michelle! At the next booth, I ran into Nicky, who taught me one of the first classes I ever took in cardmaking, way back in 2006 - I was so happy to see her and was then both humbled and honoured to hear that she's following my blog! Wow! What a spectacular day! (the only disappointment was narrowly missing meeting my online friend and OLS teammate, Karen - something to look forward to next year!)

Oh, you lucky, lucky pretty ladies! Isn't it great being able to connect?

I can just imagine how excited the instructor must have been when she found out that she had not one, but TWO Girl Fridays paying her a visit!!!

Fabulous card - love the colors and LOVE your amazing, perfectly stamped words!!!
