Priceless!!!!

That's what good friends are . . . Priceless!!! I had such a fun evening last night with my stamping/blogging friends at CPK (California Pizza Kitchen) that I wanted to make this card in their honor to let them know how special they are to me, and how much fun I had last night.

Hello everyone . . . I know it's been a couple of weeks since I have been able to share anything with you. I hate not having time to stamp and blog and talk to all my friends . . . but my new job at the bank has been very busy. Once I get settled in a little more, and learn my job a little better . . . I will have more time to stamp and chat!

It's Scrapfest weekend here in Minnesota, which is an event sponsored by Archivers, and a lot of women from all over the country are here for the workshops and make and takes. We are very lucky this year to have our very dear friend Taylor VanBruggen from tayloredexpressions in town with us and we had dinner last night in her honor. There were about 15 women at dinner and we had such a fun time. It was so nice to finally be able to meet so many of my stamping/blogging friends and be able to sit down with them and talk and share and get to know everyone a little better. I am excited to say that we are planning on doing it again in the near future.

This set is the new SU Priceless set and I have to say I was a little stumped at first on how to put something together with it . . . but once I started inking up the stamps . . . the card just flowed. I really like the fact that it has 11 stamps with it and you can not only make your main images, but you can make fun backgrounds too. Can you see how I took some of the stamps and used the SU White Craft Ink to add to the dp?

I also broke out my new 2007-2008 SU In Colors and used Wild Wasabi for the card base. I also used Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate inks, and Purely Pomegranate double stitched ribbon. The dp is from the Basic Grey Perhaps line. I used one of my 6 x 6 pads. I really like those pads.

So whether you are at Scrapfest this weekend, just enjoying time with your family, or sitting in your stamp room creating something special, I hope everyone is having a great weekend!! I am looking forward to tomorrow when Paris and I are going to Scrapfest and meeting up with Katheleen and Kristina. I will try to post some pictures this week of all our activities.

Good Night!!

Wow Pegi! I just love this card! I love how you put things together that I wouldn't normally put together- you actually got me to try different DP back when I was your big sis because I saw all your beautiful work here on your blog. Even though you are busy please keep sharing!
