I've been gone a while. I went on my annual trip to visit my Yahoo stamping group friends. This was our 9th year meeting in person. This year I went to Omaha first to visit my friends Sheri and Georgia. We spent 4 days stamping, eating and laughing! Then the three of us drove to Des Moines, Iowa to meet the rest of the group - there were 7 of us this year. Here's a picture of us all together:
We played at he Heirlooms Designs store in Valley Junction. We spent all of Monday and half of Tuesday sharing each other's toys: stamps, die cuts, etc and took a card class. After our annual good bye lunch at Biaggi's I went to Minneapolis with Lynette. We stamped for two more days and then I went home. It was a great visit and I was very productive. I have a lot of cards to share on my blog now.
This card was made with Memory Box dies - I think they were supposed to be tulips but I made them into California poppies by blending Distress Inks on them. The mats were created with SB dies and I dry embossed the top mat with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
I am submitting this to Cathy's 30 day coloring challenge:
Thanks for coming by!
