friends, friends, wonderful friends…

I am blessed to have so many friends through this hobby!  And here’s a few samples that came about from those friendships.

One friend whom I only get to see once a year earned an extra PTI set and gave it to me!  How sweet was that?!  This is my first set from PaperTrey and it gave me the gentle push I needed to order the button set I’ve been eyeing for a long time.  lol. 

Here’s the card I made to thank my friend…

And a few days ago some other friends invited me to join them when they got together to try some glass etching.  Ever since I did it on this jar, I have been wanting to etch a 9 x 13 cake pan.  So I made time to join them and they cut the design out on the Cricut for me.  (I still need to learn how to use that thing!)  I chose a font for my name and the bird was on the same cartridge.  I think it may have been Lyrical Letters??  Everything was cut from vinyl to stick onto the pan for a stencil.  The letters needed to be entered and cut out backwards so they show through the bottom in the right order & direction!  I thought it turned out pretty cute!

We are still in the midst of computer woes but I should be back tomorrow with a Stampavie sample.  And I also have a cute C.C. Designs project I can’t wait to share!  Hopefully the computer will cooperate so I can post it soon.

Take care!
