Garden Whimsy

Good morning friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Monday!

When I sat down to stamp last night what do you think was right next to me? Yep, my pile of current sets waiting to find a new room after I "get rid of" more of my retired stamps. There are still plenty available. You can see them HERE. Anyway, on the top of that pile was the set Garden Whimsy. I got this set when it first came out but, like so many other sets, I have rarely used it so...I pulled it out and stamped up this card. I've, once again, used the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper...I'm still loving the colors in it! I also used this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch seen HERE. Let me know if you need details.

The other picture is of Todd and I in front of the Cadillac Escalade Limo we rode in for a tour this last weekend. There were 13 of us in the limo and we met the most fun couple and guess what their names were? Lori and John. Too funny, huh? Lori and I hit it off right away and I think if we lived closer we'd be friends for sure! Speaking of friends...I think I told you awhile ago that one of my good friends is moving. Well, we are coming into her final week of being here in town. Just thinking about it makes me cry but I know she needs to go. Our last lunch together will be on Friday so pray that we don't both just dissolve into tears!

I hope you have a super Tuesday and get lots accomplished!

*I am SO honored that my card was chosen as one of the Top 10 for this sketch! WOW!!*

BTW do you happen to have the Butterfly of Happiness set laying around for sale? I am trying to locate that old set. My mom loves the butterfly in there and I would LOVE to surprise her with it. Thanks for checking.
