owl be there...

I tell you, Pam has so much patience with me...on more than one occasion have I switched up cards on her for DT work...LOL. I'll submit something to her and then think about it and change my mind. This is one of those cards...for you 365 Cards peeps, do you know what one I 'had' submitted this for? Give up? It is for this ONE. I'm much happier with the one that I eventually submitted for the challenge but still think this one is fun :) I really think that The Greeting Farm has some super sweet images...I typically gravitate to the animal ones...although this ONE is fantabulous. This is a 4.25 inch square card...Stampin' up Basic Gray teamed up with, yup, Amy Butler goodness. Check out her eyeshadow and you guessed it, she has recently had a pedi with my Sakura Stardust pen.

On a side note, D and I spent the weekend in Montana. He was in a golf tournament with his Dad, Uncle and cousin. I tagged along...no, I didn't golf...I drove myself 70+ miles into Missoula. I emailed the most fabulous Lea Lawson of, Life needs a few more Cupcakes & Sunshine, to see if she could recommend a good shop that I could visit. Oh boy did she...The Scrapbook Hide-Away is where I went. OhMyGoodness....talk about chock full of goodness...I think that their specialty is paper...wow...so much fabulous paper...I stocked up...get this, the entire shop was 25% off AND tax free...woot woot! Oy Vey...

Here's to a fabulous week!!!

thanks for the blog love Amy. I think we already have a lot in common!! I love The Greeting Farm stamps too and Basic grey papers. Today I scrapbooked all day with Memory Box papers. I am so happy my friend Sherry told me about 365 cards and I'm loving all the comments. Its nice to *meet* new online friends and compliment one another even if it does take time to leave comments. TTYL!
