Why yes, yes I am...
...but we'll get to that in a sec!
I have some REALLY awesome stampy friends.
If you are reading this, chances are you are one of them! ;)
Every once in a while, I like to gather some RAK's (random acts of kindness cards!) that I get in the mail and share...so today, on this SUPER sun-shiney Cinco de Mayo...here we go!
My sweet friend and now, fellow HELMAR DT sister CARISA sent me this gorgeous card using Sweet and Toxic from The Greeting Farm...and what she wrote on the inside, if you can believe this, was even MORE beautiful <3 Thank you sweetie!
The very awesome RONA sent me this beauty as a thank you for the UNITY blog candy she won during my goodbye post...isn't it gorgeous? Totally unnecessary, too- those are the best!
Next up is the sweet and talented Tiffany Johnson, love this w/ the decorative tapes! Thanks Tiff! oh, and now that I'm on a Mixed Media kick? My washi tapes are giving me a whole new reason to pull them out of my stash!
Last but not least, my adorable, and LOCAL friend, Trisha Stanley, sent this to me! I feel so special to have received it, b/c it was my fave image from Suzanne Dean's Copic class that I met Trisha at. And she added a butterfly...see? Even our new friends pay close attention to our likes/dislikes and she added that just for me! LOVE it!
You've probably heard me talk about Trisha before, as she and her partner Missy are the masterminds behind SINCERELY SOLDERED, the company who made my AMAZING Mommy pendant below:
Be sure to check out their FACEBOOK page too, where you can see my pendant, the pendant I got for Marie as a baby gift, and TONS more examples....you might be LATE for Mother's day, but hey, when Mom sees this, it won't matter...or perhaps YOU'RE the mommy and you want to get this for yourself? I totally think you should ;)
...and LAST but not least...let's talk about a friend who I've known for a few years now, who's made the trek to Nashville to visit me...and who JUST so happened to have asked me to join her BRAND NEW Sketch Blog????
You guessed it! My awesome pal JEN SHULTS is starting her own sketch challenge that debuts MAY 12, a week from today, and she's asked ME (amongst a ton of other TALENTED ladies, and some girls I can't wait to work with again!) to be on the DT! I know, I know, I'm gonna be a busy girl, but these are the best kinds of challenges b/c Jen's sketches are uh, A-MAZING and I can combine it w/ other stuff, so I'm super stoked to be able to draw from that inspiration! WOO HOO!
You can read all about the announcement HERE! Be sure to grab a BADGE while you're there too, and stay tuned for all the deets and our first challenge on MAY 12th.
WHEW...I'm exhausted, you? I'm off to press my little one's Easter Dress as tonight is the big pre-school Spring program and I cannot WAIT...lotsa kleenex packed in this momma's bag! MWAH!
