A RAK, A Sweet Farewell, and a DT Call!

Hello Friends!

Yes, I've posted three days in a row!  Now, don't get used to it, but I really have every intention of being better about posting more regularly.  So, you can hold me to that, for sure.  Deal?  Deal.

I have some incredibly sweet stamping friends that I've never actually had the pleasure of meeting, but adore as if I see them regularly, and meet them for coffee once a week.  Seriously, I feel so incredibly blessed in that department.  One particular group of stamping friends, women that I co-hosted with for several Virtual Stamp Nights on Splitcoast Stampers, mean the world to me, and I just don't tell them that often enough.  We recently all agreed to send each other cards once a month on a rotating basis.  Such a fun idea, right?  Especially since I am so bad about sending my cards to people - this "forced" my hand, which I so need these days.  Well, I got my first card in the mail about a week ago from Jean - naturecoastcrafter on SCS.  Here's what I got:

Is this not so incredibly gorgeous?!!  She made fun of my "favorite" weather pattern - NOT!! - and included a brilliant and witty note inside.  It made my day.  Thank you, Jean . . . your friendship means the world to me.  Truly!

Also, you may have noticed that I didn't post an ABC Toys & Crafts card on Monday.  Sadly, my term as a design team member ended at the end of January.  I enjoyed every minute as a member of the ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team, and will miss my girls so much!  But life goes on, and so does the circle of design team members.  LOL  I want to thank Julie Foote (the owner) for putting up with my nonsense for the last year and a half, and for providing me with this fabulous opportunity.  It has been a real joy.

Which leads me to my last bit of news.  Julie is looking for a new design team, and has posted the call HERE.  If this is something that you think you'd like to try your hand at, you really should apply.  Really, you're not going to find a nicer boss lady, or get the chance to work with some great products.  So, don't walk - RUN to the ABC Toys & Crafts Blog and check it out.  NOW!!  LOL

That's it for me today, peeps.  I'll be back on Monday with some crafty goodness to share with you all.  Hubby is going to a Super Bowl Party (no girls allowed - whatever!) on Sunday, so I'll be a stampin' fool.  Thanks for stopping by today - have a great weekend!!
