Busy Weekend!

Elaine's closeup cropped

Wow, what a busy weekend, and no time for stamping!  My sister flew up from South Carolina for an impromptu visit and normally she spends a lot of time with friends and crashes at our home.  This time we got to spend lots of time together!  I was so glad she came though; the weather was perfect here in PA and it was raining at her house!!  Here is  some of what we did:

  • Ran errands and visited friends
  • Visited my daughter at her new job & bought flowers (she just took a position as a floral manager at a grocery store)
  • Went out to breakfast
  • Went to Annapolis MD; she did sightseeing, DH & I went to the Sailboat Show
  • Had lunch & shared an ENORMOUS dish of mint chocolate chip ice cream
  • Had my dad for dinner
  • Had the rest of the family for dessert
  • Went yard-sale-ing
  • Went for a sailboat ride
  • Went to a big dinner at the Italian American club where DH entered his homemade wine in the wine-making contest, and we all ate way too much food

A crazy weekend, but lots of fun.  So the only things I have to share are a couple of wonderful cards I got in the mail one day---not sure which day, it was so crazy!   This one is from Elaine--we have become blog friends across the country!  It is exquisite and I love the sweet sentiment:   "Wherever you are, it is your friends who make your world":

The next one is from my upline Pennie.  This is so sweet & simple--I love it!  Less is more, I think:

Pennie's thank you

And last, but not least......a stamped a card Thursday night for Kristina Werner's challenge this week, but never got a chance to post it....just too busy!  So here it is anyway, for you to enjoy.  Maybe next week, although it is looking pretty hectic from here!!

Hi LeAnne -

Can you tell me where I can purchase the button dies that you used on your last card?

Thank you.
