An Amazing Crafting Morning


Photo: I got to hang out with these awesome ladies today.. This is why I love blogland..

I am still giddy from an amazing morning of crafting with a fun and talented group of cardmakers and bloggers.  They are as amazing in person as they are on their blogs. We talked and laughed and shared and did a bit of crafting.  Can you believe that I rubbed elbows with Laurie Willison,  me, Tenia Nelson (both from Curtain Call), Annette Allen (who recently moved to Colorado - we were on the TAWS design team together), Wida MillerCeal Pritchett (we were on Sweet 'n Sassy together), Lisa PetrellaMichelle Gross (owner of CAS-ual Fridays stamps), and Alyssa Scritchfield (not pictured).  I am hoping just a little bit of their talent rubbed off on me!

I went prepared to get a lot of cards made.  Not so much...too busy sharing stories and trying other people's stuff.  But here is one of the cards that I managed to finish up.

Warm and Fuzzy Hugs

I realized a little late that it doesn't read quite like I wanted it to.  I put two stamps together "warm & fuzzy" and "hugs" to get "warm & fuzzy hugs".  But after I got the picture taken, I realized that what it really reads is "warm fuzzy & hugs".  But that little guy is just too darn not to post!
  • Stamps: Paper Smooches Party Posse, Sentiment Sampler
  • Paper: MME Fine & Dandy True Blue
  • Ink: Memento Black and Copics
  • Accessories: Simon Says Stamp word bubble dies, Freckled Fawn wood veneer, Lil' Inkers stitched rectangles, The Twinery Caribbean Twine

I will now be buying this set thanks to you! I am a huge fan of yours also but sad we didn't get to chat more. Hoping we can plan an event that allows more movement in the room so we can mingle more....like a card exchange party or something. I loved this card the minute I saw it!

What an amazing group of ladies you got to get together with! All that creativity in one room!!! And your card is so sweet (that little guy is one of my fave stamps!). No sentence mix up at all - I read it just how it was intended to be, before I even read your note about it!

Darnell J Knauss said...

How? How did this happen? Oh, I'm so jealous! You are ALL some of my favorite card artists! Seriously, HOW?! Where is this loop I've been out of?

Your card is perfect, Kims! Nothin' better than warm fuzzy hugs!!

shirley-bee said...

Aw, I wanna be in your gang! BTW, I read the card exactly as intended :)

Aileen said...

Whichever way your sentiment reads Kim it's just too cute. I love the wood background too. I'm so jealous of your lovely craft event. x

Andrea L - EnchantINK said...

I wanna join your gang too! So many VIPs there! Love the cutie pie card! I read the sentiment how you wanted. They say our brains are really clever ... We see what we think is normal ... Even if it isn't! Hugs xxx

Sherry Eckblad said...

Lucky you to meet up with so many talented women like yourself. Love your card.

TenSGal said...

The card is adorable!!! And I read it as "warm and fuzzy"....I think because the two words are small and the & is right next to them your eye reads it as one phrase sort of thing. LOL...not explaining well but I think your card is great! ;)
And always fun to spend time with creative friends!

Susan

Laurie said...

I am so happy that we got to meet! You are so sweet and amazingly talented! I can't wait to come back and visit again! :)

cm said...

Oh, your crafting adventure sounds awesome! I'll echo Darnell: how did this amazing 'mensa' group of creativity and talent come to be? How I'd LOVE to rub shoulders with all of you...perhaps you could travel to my town in Alberta? Our mountains are gorgeous...
Your card is totally so dang cute! Warm fuzzy hugs delivered by you adorable little critter = day-brightened!!

schmangela said...

I love that woodgrain background. Can you tell me if it's a stamp, or paper? Couldn't figure it out from your supply list, but would love to have it. Thanks!

Lisa Petrella said...
