Meeting Friends

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."

Linda, Anna, Myself, & Megan at Fisherman's Wharf!

Last weekend DH and I traveled to San Francisco, CA to meet two of my PC{A} online friends!! We had a great time! Anna and her friend Megan are visiting the US from Australia and Linda lives in KS. We all arrived in SF on Thursday the 18th. We met up early Friday morning!! It was so cool to meet them IRL!! Linda and Anna were exactly like I thought they'd be... Megan was a bonus as she was traveling with Anna. We hung out for two days before DH and I headed for home... it is a trip I will always treasure.... thanks for being my friends ladies!!

Been a while....

We've busy, busy for a while! Made a trip up north for DD's 25th b-day and then spent a week at the lake... and now it's September!! Haven't made a card in over a month.... so here's one I made last night.

I saw this design over at SCS and tracked down the tutorial. This is a very fun card and it fits into an A2 envie.

Happy carding to all of you!!

BTW did you know that September is National Stamping Month?? Stamp away ladies!!
