Hello from Las Vegas

I made it to Vegas for the Craft & Hobby Associations “Create ‘n Connect Summer Show”! I have a lot of meetings scheduled for today and tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing what all of my favorite paper and stamp companies have to share, as well!  I’d promise pictures, but I’ve learned that I’m not very good at follow-thru on that. Maybe this will be the trip I surprise myself!

This was a quick and easy card that I put together with Blueprints 3 dies from My Favorite Things. When I say quick and easy, I mean like 30 minutes or less. The stitching takes a few minutes! {wink} I really, really like the Blueprints dies for speed and layering prowess.

When I was in Virginia at the end of May, I got to spend two whole days with my dear friend, Michele (and I just realized I don’t have a picture of us – so I’ve included one of the view for the majority of my vacation – from our family fishing dock, sadly my Vegas view doesn’t look anything like this! LOL!), and shortly after that trip she gifted me some of these pretty sequins. So easy to just drop on my card, and they are flat. Which reminds me, I’m pretty sure I still owe Michele about $17.67 for a stamp order that we shared the shipping on. I’ll need to get on that! I’d hate to lose such a dear friend over $17.67. LOL.

The sentiment is from MFT’s Sweet Roses set! And, the paper, well, I’ve had an attachment to this pretty paper for a while, and now I can’t find the original pad to source it. The troubles of a hoarding card maker.

So, we’ll see if I surprise you (and myself!) with images from Vegas! Until then,

be crafty. be happy.
