Finally meeting a Wonderful Friend!

Well I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend...
 Mine has been full.  My Mom came down from Arizona
 and My daughter and me took her shopping all day
 and what a great time we had.. Then we meet up with
 my sister and did some more shopping
I can't believe my mom keep up with us..

I was so wound up when I got home I
thought I would do a card Challenge..
So here it is... This card is for two different Challenge.
The first on is a sketch challenge from
 Crazy for challenges
and the second Challenge is for
The Shabby Tea Room....
The challenge is to used warm colors or strips..

So this is what I came up with I just love these little
 House Mouse stamps I just think they are adorable...
 It's been awhile sense I have used them.

Meeting up with Kirsty
This week I got to meet up with a wonderful Blogger friend..
This is the first time I have meet up with someone I have
meet on my blog... Kirsty is so sweet and we had a
wonderful time.. I just know this is the beginning of
a wonderful friendship.. and many hour of crafting...

Me & Kirsty!
Our husbands are with us..
and even they got along great!
This is the beautiful card Kirsty gave me
She had made it for one of our challenges and
knew how much I loved it!
How sweet!
She also gave me some little goodies from
her etsy shop... How fun!
I fell so lucky!

I still feel a little wound up hopefully I can get calm
down and get to sleep...
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Hugs, Linda
