A little note

Hi there!
Thanks for all the kind words - they mean so much! :)
The recovery on the photos is still waiting on my brother tomorrow, so we'll see what we can salvage.
The paper I had to rewrite looks even better than before, so this part of the computer trouble was a blessing in disguise! ;)
And for all my bookmarked links and blogs, those are coming along - I plan to spend parts of this evening and tomorrow bookmarking and commenting on all the blogs. :)

Now on to a card, made for this weeks Simply Scrapping Crafts card challenge! There is still a little bit of time left to submit to the design team call, so if you haven't submitted yet, give it a try! Lots of benefits, including a large selection of cardmaking supplies available to you at wholesale price, AND sponsor product! What's not to love?

Also for Moxie Fab World's paper piecing challenge - can't tell you how much I love this, as paper piecing is my fave way to fill in an image!
It was kinda though, paper piecing with a digi image. I had to print this image up four times, once on white paper, three times on different shades of orange...a little different from your normal paper piecing. ;)

Blurry close up pic...

Used a sweet free digi stamp from PTI during their anniversary festivities.

I am so excited that my first PTI order arrived today! Just a small one - a flower set so I can make my sisters wedding invites, and a small $5 set. But, I only paid for the $5 set, as my sister is paying for the supplies for the invites. Free PTI stamp set - score!
I'll be sure to show you the invites when I get them finished....when that happens...I'm going to be doing some wet embossing, which actually, I've never done before! lol!

Anyways, thanks so much for stopping in and I hope you're enjoying your weekend!
