Garden of Friendship...

Hey, everyone!

Just as my alarm failed me on my iPhone this morning (and we were still 15 minutes EARLY to school today, woo hoo!), I must have been sleepy when I typed this because I never scheduled it, LOL!

HAPPY TUESDAY, my friends!
Friendship is a wonderful thing, isn't it?  I have to say that in the 3+ years I've been doing this, I've learned a TON about friendships and how to grow them, cultivate them, and well, recognize a few 'weeds' too, LOL.   I have to say that I have met some of the most WONDERFUL people in this business-people who you only talked to through the computer, then got to meet, or maybe you didn't even meet yet-that turn out to be closer friends and bigger/better supporters than some of the people who we thought would be true to us that we've known for years....isn't that the TRUTH!?

I'm happy to be in a place where I really feel that friendship means most to me-and that the ones I have are here to stay.  I'm so thankful to ALL OF YOU (you know who you are!) for being TRUE friends-no measuring sticks, no pretenses, just THERE because well...you like me :)  Rest assured I like you, too!  <3  Life is SO much easier and yet more meaningful when we're all just 'here' together, isn't it?

I have TWO cards from Taylored Expressions' MARCH Key Ingredients Kit to show you today (forgive the angle on these-I should re-shoot them.  This was RIGHT before my DH told me that he 'accidentally' dropped my lens, hmmmm... funny how I knew something was up, LOL!!!!)

I ADORE the Stella&Rose paper from My Mind's Eye in this kit and decided to make that the main focus along with some adorable TAYLORED DIES-"Leafy Branch" and "Friendship Blooms" dies- and  that allowed me to cut out elements from one of my favorite stamp sets, "Friendship Blooms."

Are you subscribed to the Key Ingredients yet?  You have through the end of this month-Thursday! to get this AWESOME kit and just WAIT til you see next month's. You *need* both, trust me!  These two simple cards are just a TEENY sampling of the AMAZING things you can do w/ this month's kit-and let me tell you the wooden buttons are my FAVE!   Be sure to check out the subscriptions and thanks for stopping by today!

One last thing-but DEFINITELY not least,a HUGE congrats to Taylor and Taylored Expressions, as they are the NEWEST MEMBER COMPANY on Splitcoast Stampers!  Be sure to check out our new forum and come say hello!

In Friendship,
