Is it Saturday Already????

This week has absolutely flown by. It was Stamp Club week, so that accounted for the busy-ness of the first half, and then last night was my bi-weekly scrapbooking night with Susan (which I LOVE) and our new friend Des. Today will be busy, too. I have a BBQ to go to this afternoon, which is a potluck, which means I've got to get my "pot" ready or we'll be outta luck! And if I don't get a mani/pedi and my car washed... well, maybe the world won't come to an end, but I'll have to hide in shame!

So, dear friends, I'll be back to stamping and blog surfing and trying to catch up on email, etc., tomorrow. I'm sooooo excited because I start my Jr Design Team term with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps on Wednesday! And I get to start out by participating in a Blog Hop! For the schedule of events, see my right side bar... and please HOP with us!

Speaking of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, I'm sharing a card I made for Susan's mom Nita, who is a dab hand at quilting and sewing. And that is putting it mildly. Nita was recently honored as a Life Member of her quilting guild in Vancouver WA. Plus, out of the blue, she treated me to a beautiful purse made with Laurel Burch fabric that features cats. A congratulations/thank you card seemed feeble, but was certainly heartfelt. And this is the card I chose. As far as I'm concerned, Nita's work IS The Craft's Meow!

The stamp set is called Purr-fect Day, and that's what I'm hoping all of you will have!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit, and I'll be in touch soon!
