happy friday!!!

Okay, this post is chock full of goodness...so grab a cup of coffee and sit for a while:)

Have you noticed that there are a TON of things going on in bloggie land?  Each of my cards kind of touches on some recent events...

First up is a Sassy card...Sassafras goodies...


The paper is Indie Girl, I have used some In a Stitch blooms...some flag banners....Sweet Treats...the base is PTI kraft...sentiment by EAD Designs, Saying Hello Sentiments...bittersweet card...it is for a combo of sites

First up is....Torendi....


Ahhhhh....Torendi....I have had the joy of working with Jenn as a part of her Design Team...today is the last day Torendi will be in business...see this blog post.....Do you remember that last year I was Torendi's Guest CHA Employee?  Craftily speaking...it is one of my fondest memories...my first CHA and it was fantabulous....absolutely indescribable...overwhelming...tiring...perfect. 

I have so enjoyed my time as part of the Torendi Design Team and want to give a big shout out to Jenn, Tiff & Courtney...you gals rock!

My card was inspired by Laura's farewell sketch over at 2S4Y:


I 'literally' gasped when I read that Laura and Kazan decided to say farewell...wow, I've been such a huge fan...a true highlight of my week to see what the sketches looked like, what the designers did with those fabbie sketches and to see the unveiling of the COTW and Fab 5...Best wishes to you ladies...you've definitely impacted the bloggie world with all the inspiration that 2S4Y has slung out there....

Up next is another bittersweet card... 


It really only seemed appropriate to dehoard the Homespun Chic line for this particular card...the blogging community has been supporting a fellow paper crafter, Katie RenzCraft Critique has started a Katie Renz Fund to help Katie battle Stage 4 Gastric Cancer. 

I cannot begin to imagine what Katie is going through...I follow her blog posts and I have to tell you, it gets me...I feel so much emotion for Katie...her writing style is wonderful and I feel like I know her...kwim?

So, this is the card I'm sending to Katie, the brave chick...all the paper is Homespun Chic...see the sweet red blingy hearts?  It's a way for her to know that I have her in my heart...sending her good ju-ju...strength....courage...

Katie's card was inspired by Kazan's sketch:


Are you still with me ladies...I warned you of my long post....I have some fab news:



Go ahead....pop over there and then pop back here...I'll wait for ya:)
Can you believe it?  Woooooooooo Hoooooooooooo!

So in honor of my Moxie Fab Day....E.A.D Designs is  sponsoring a little blog candy for the occasion!!!

Check it out ladies:







One lucky duck will win all three sheets of Stickerz!!!!  

Leave me a comment...  I'll leave the commenting open until Sunday, January 23rd @ 11:59 pm PST and will announce the winner of the Stickerz on Monday morning:)
