Where on EARTH has the past week gone??? My BFF, Jan (as in Tink) got here last Tuesday so that we could go to Convention together and play ... and she will be leaving already on Tuesday morning. We have laughed, stamped, eaten good food, eaten CHOCOLATE, laughed, stamped and eaten some MORE!! Can't believe it has gone so quickly.

This is the second card I swapped with my Freaky Friends ... and I almost didn't get 'er done!! Although I KNEW that we were supposed to swap last Thursday at lunch in the Gathering Place), I hadn't had the chance to get started on these until Thursday morning. I had everything cut out and embossed, but took my materials to the back of the Main Stage room and sat on the floor ... in a DRESS no less ... and stamped, cut, pierced and pearlized theses babies almost right up 'til the very last moment!! I had SOOO many people stop and ask if they could take my picture (they thought it was funny that I was stamping in the back of the room in the near-dark!). I am happy to report that many of them also took pix of this card (with my earlier-posted butterfly one) because they liked it as well. Just glad that I got 'em done!!

So here is a pic of the "Tink 'n 'Bell" Tag Team!! Ain't we just the ca-YOOT-est??? (I look seriously wiped out in this photo, actually. After spending several days on the river, then coming home and doing a stamping/eating/non-sleeping marathon for days, it was getting harder and harder to look "daisy fresh", kwim??? (Jan, on the other hand, looks FABOO!!!) Thanks for coming and hanging with me and my homegirls, friend!! Can't wait to do it again NEXT year!!

Wow! I think this card is GORGEOUS!! I LOVE that Teahouse stamp!! I can see so many Vintage possibilities with it! You made me laugh with your "stampin on the floor" story...sounds like something I would do! :o)

This card is just to die for!!! I'm starting to re-think this Demo thing I keep having gals trying to talk me into. and you're right---you 2 are just the cutest Tan/Jink team!!

Hey Wendy~

So happy that you have just had one adventure after another! So glad to finally "meet" Jan aka Tink.

This card is wonderful! It doesn't look like it was put together at the last minute at all! LOL Just joking with you-gf! It does look great. I know from experience that sometimes, the less time I have to put a card together the better it will come out...because I don't second guess every little thing.

I'm going to go back and see what I missed while I was on my trip. I hope you included lots of new ideas!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

I've been debating, back-n-forth, on these very stamps. Thanks for solving that dilemma for me with such a beautiful card!!! Another must be batting like 890!! xoxo
