Welcome to the 1st Torendi Customer Blog Hop! 

You should have hopped here from the Torendi Blog!

There's going to be a prize for a lucky blog hopper...you must leave a comment on all the blogs including the Torendi blog...Torendi will be giving out some fun 'Lil Red' Fabric:


Have you checked out the Sassafras Count me in Wee Bundle??!!!  I used that sassy goodness in my card for today...


Oy...combine it with some Sassafras In A Stitch Blossoms and doilies...you gotta party on a card!  I seriously don't know what I'd do without my little Janome...love stitching everything up!  I finished off the card with some vinyl thickers...

I was inspired by the Card Patterns #85:

**A Ginormous Thank You**

Seriously, you peeps are thee best...if you haven't seen it, yesterday I posted a plea to 'vote for me' over at Cosmo Cricket...they are doing a contest for a November Honorary Guest DT spot {looks like the contest is open through October 17th!}...OMGoodness...I had so many SWEET comments from you gals...I hesitated to even 'go for it' because I KNOW that Cosmo Cricket is so very popular but I gotta tell you, I do truly LOVE their stuff and love to design with it {Cosmo goodies are sold at Torendi!!!}...so if I'm not the lucky duck, I can honestly say that you gals made the journey worthwhile....you REALLY know how to make a girl feel great...I THANK YOU for that.

Okay, next up on the Torendi Blog hop is the FABBIE Courtney at

back to the drawing board!
