Needless to say the insanity button has been pressed WAY too many times around here of late. I cannot believe where all the time is going!!!
I am channelling a lot of energy into this Friday....my very first Workshop/Hostess party as a SU demo. A wonderful friend is hostessing for me and I am very excited/nervous/and all that goes with it.
One thing I absolutely love about the SU and greater crafting community is the amazing friendships. I have so many fab friends online and on Facebook, many (most) of whom I have never met. Yet, any time that one has trouble or falls on hard times, there are sooooo many rallying around with handmade RAK's in letterboxes and email/messages of courage and the like.
I had cause to send a card to a FB friend that has had a HORROR of a time of late. i do not know this girl very well, but something inside of me said I had to do something. So....with some stealth investigation to source her addy, I sent her this card........
It also gave me the chance to further play with some SAB goodies...being the Sycamore Street DSP, the Madison Avenue stamp set and the co-ordinating buttons and ribbon. I will admit to not using much Tangerine Tango at all, but I am kind of getting use to it using it with this paper.
I used SWM's to colour the flower and used the new Oval Framelits (available in the new seasonal mini). Made it all oh so easy. I also carried through the hexagonal shape in the DSP by embossing the DSP with the Hexagon EF!! It was finished off with a banner and a button with ribbon threaded through it. Easy-peasy!!
I received a beautiful message of thanks from the young lass too. Looks like it did the trick. Glad I listened to my gut!!
Thanks for popping by. I have a couple more projects to show you with this year's SAB goodies. Remember it finished on March 22nd, so if you have your eye on anything, drop me a line and I can hopefully help you out.
