W - {for WOW!} plus FABULOUS!

{I know - WHAAAAT? - I'm speakin' English, REALLY: Wplus9 dialect!}

Translation: DAWN has made another unbelievably GORGEOUS set!

It's the third day of our newest release and that means SET #2, Very Vintage Greetings!


Dawn's got the particulars, but here's my interpretation: GORGEOUS flowers!
Ultra elegant frames, COORDINATING die { Yes! ANOTHER unbelievably fun die!}
and sentiments incorporating the MOST gorgeous fonts & all purpose greetings -

Oh, BABIES! It's real beauty, for SURE!

Unfortunately, "sympathy" cards have been "on call" quite a bit lately. We hate
to have to send them, but on the flip-side - it's SUCH an opportunity to show
love and thoughtfulness at a time when words can truly fall short. I was inspired
to create an extremely warm and beautiful card - to send some sympathy, bathed
in light and love. I truly believe that if you do not make ANY other card, EVER,
a hand-made sympathy card is THE most important card you can make. This
latest set has a wide array of sentiments, but this one called to me the loudest...

Meanwhile, I know I'll be stunned and DELIGHTED by the amazing artisanship
of my fellow Wplus9-ers.... I look SO forward to visiting every one of them during
release nights {and, well ALWAYS, for that matter - if ONLY more hours in the day}


{Okay, Mrs. WORDY!} Here's a treasure map to my darling and devastatingly
talented Wplus9 Crafty Babes! Buckle up, buttercups - you're in for a thrill!


And that leaves little old me. I'm THRILLED that you visited, that's for SURE!
I adore riding the wave of inspiration during release week and your comments
and thoughtful words TRULY help me keep it real AND fun - it's like a trip to
the CRAFTY CIRCUS! ALL THREE rings performing, and the excitement
never slows...

Until we're all out of peanuts.

{Wait, WHA?}

Hee Hee! I get giddy, you know. THANKS again, though. Y'all are peaches!

Hope to see you AGAIN, tomorrow!
