What FUN!!!




How much fun is it to meet, in person, the wonderfully supportive friends I have met online over this past year!!! First I was so thrilled to meet several of the wonderful Stamp Simply ladies back in July and now this weekend I was fortunate enough to link up with Dawn Burnworth - My Stamping Thyme (flowergal36 on SCS).




My stamping friend Sandy Egbert, who lives a couple miles down the road from me, has a son who happens to be living in Mooresville, NC ... where Dawn lives. So Sandy & I decided to take the weekend and head for N.C. Our 7 hour drive on Friday went very well but Saturday was a very RAINY day. We made the best of it however by visiting 4 different stamping stores (making a few purchases along the way of course) and then that evening, she went to visit with her son and I linked up with Dawn. We simply went to dinner at Applebee's and spent the next 4-1/2 hours chit-chatting about EVERYTHING!!! What a wonderful visit ... we had such a nice time. I hope to be able to visit Dawn again some day but in the meantime ... we will be staying in touch via our blogs and the Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential Challenge Blog for which we are both on the new design team!!

Life is GOOD!!!

Your work truly needs to be seen everywhere as I have always been a fan since we met on the SCS blogging group. Sat.
