Meeting with Friends

Time spent with friends is time well spent. Thursday evening, my friend Lynn and I crafted with our friend, Karen. I work with Karen's husband at the bowling alley and we used to laugh that taking care of people at the bowling alley came in second only to our stamping! Nelson, Karen's husband does great work and we would spend all night Friday talking stamping and exchanging images.

I'm loving Tilda and she just looks so cute in her little swimsuit. Reminds me of the girls running around in their swimsuits up at camp. You'd never find them sitting on the dock though. They'd be jumping right off into the water! Water babies I had! I brought my Tilda in Swimsuit because I've been dying to put her together. I found some paper, Sugared by Basic Grey, that just called to me to put together for her. The buttons are from a friend, Kim, the brads and stick pen flower are from Loreen at Wish Upon a Scrap and I colored her with my Bic markers and chalked the sky and water with my SU pastels.

Karen brought out all of her SU sets and I spent more time looking than I did stamping! And who can pass up getting first shot at using a brand new set from the SU? As you can see, not me! This is "Fresh Cut" and it's presented on one of the new die cut set of cards. I used Riding Hood Red, I believe paper and ink for it. The button in the middle is from my button jar my mom gave me and the ribbon is from Joann's. I glued the extra petals on and curled their edges. This set is beautiful and the cards are stunning. I've got to have them!

We had the best time and if you haven't ever stamped or crafted with a friend, I highly recommend it. We talked, laughed, oooh'd and augh'd over everyone elses tools and toys and shared with each other and had the best time. Like I said, time spend with friends is time well spent. I love well spent time!
