Blog Pals!

I love this ~ when friendships and bits of blog life cross over... to the real world! I talk to some of you DAILY! Some of you {xoxo!}, are chatted with THROUGHOUT the day! Some of us chit chat over coffee, and all of you, I wish to READ your funny and creative insights every day ~ if only there were more hours!!! Anywhoo, here is a card that was sent to me.... ALL THE WAY FROM THE EAST COAST!

Friendship Card from LeAnne / Wee Inklings:

LeAnne is a super talent and a delightful blogger, and SHE was the funny gal who "strongly encouraged" me to participate in the Color Throwdown {and when I say ENCOURAGED, I'm mean it!}... which, she is a fabulous designer for! Anyway, isn't this a super sweet seasonal friendship card! Golly gosh, I LOVE THOSE FUN PUMPKINS! Check out Leanne's blog when you have some time! AND, jump in for some super fun color challenge with the CTD girls! You'll be glad you DID!

I made and SENT LeAnne a card that she kindly featured on HER blog! Here is another card that I made with some "card maker's salad" that was leftover on my table top! {Dana, from Paper Daydream calls it "Card Casserole!" ~ isn't that the perfect description!}

Although this weekend wasn't punctuated with the same high level of crafty excitement as WCMD, I do want to share that I was fortunate in having the opportunity to scrap with some darling local scrappers/craft goddesses at a nearby church today~ it was such a lovely way to "keep the love alive" {from WCMD!} and share a super crafty fun day with others who are just as crazy as I am! Tee Hee {THANKS, ladies! What a blast!}

As usual, I'm hoping that YOU, darling blog visitor, friend and co-paper craft lovin' craft goddess, got some craft on today, and if not ~ there's always TOMORROW! {Yee Haw!}

Both cards are adorable! You are so funny, I love reading your posts! "Card Casserole" is one of the best word creations I heard lately! Thank you so much for your sweet comment, it even made my husband grin! And didn`t I tell you about your "get sketchy" card?? Congratulations, it is so well deserved! I was really happy to see your name on top!

Your cards are so fun. I love them both, card salad, I know exactly what you are talking about. And you are exactly right about the blogging buddies, it's been such fun to make new friens thru paper :)
