Images from Friends ....

Good Friday Morning All!!

Over time, I have received images from various online friends and have finally gotten around to making a few cards with those images to share with you!!

This first creation uses an image from Marie in Sweden! I can't even remember how or when Marie & I first starting talking but somehow we discovered we were both Pittsburgh Steeler fans. And, not only did she send me this (and a few other) adorable image, but she created a Steeler card to send them in!! Isn't she sweet!!! Thanks Marie ... GO STEELERS!!

This adorable rocking chair is an image my friend Kay Squires in Indianapolis, Indiana, sent to me!

Last but not least ... this very whimsical image from my friend Janine Orchard in London, Ontario, Canada. While meeting up with some of the Stamp Simply ladies back in July, Janine had several different little whimsical images like this to share with us all. As most of you know, I am NOT a whimsical crafter ... so this was out of my comfort zone but was GREAT FUN to play with! How do you like the colors I came up with ??? Thanks Janine for making me "try something different" ... Waving Hi!!!

Isn't it wonderful how we can make friends all over the world and share this wonderful craft together! I have a few others that were kind enough to share their images with me and really must get busy creating with those to share with you! I just LOVE meeting new crafting people here on the internet and am always THRILLED when I get a personal email, surprise via snail mail or even just a comment on one of my creations that I've shared here on my blog!! This is just a little token of my thanks for these ladies kindness .. I certainly wouldn't want you to think that your efforts weren't appreciated and put to good use!!! God Love Ya for being so kind!

Thanks to you too for stopping by today and letting me share! Please stop back later in the day when I hope to have today's Stamp Simply creation completed and ready to share with you!! Today Sharon has us doing "overstamped sentiments" ... should be fun!!!

What fabulous cards and what fabulous friends you have to send you their images! Love the one of the girl laying in the field of flowers. I remember having the time to do that when I was that age. Love the sentiment with the rocker image too! How cute!
