One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

A Two Fer!! CAS Mix Up June challenge and Just Us Girls


Hi Friends!  I am really scoring today with help from my BFF, Linda!

This card is going into Two challenges!

While Linda and I were at the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo I of course HAD to buy a few things.
I purchased this cute die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs: Baby Charms Dies and the Baby Pajamas Layering Stencil.  I decided to try my Deco foil Transfer GEL for the heart stencil and then added a sweet mango foil from Gina K.  I die cut the pajamas, two from PTI Bitty Baby pattern paper and one that I sponged on a blue color and added the sponge red hearts to each of them.
The sentiment is from PTI's Sweet Baby.
This is our last full day together playing in Linda's craft room. 
We are definitely having a wonderful time and trying our foiling again!
In fact we are anxiously waiting for the mailman to come with an order from Blisty with more transfer paper and more foil...especially the rainbow foil paper!
I leave on a train tomorrow to head back home to Oregon.
It was so fun to be here for almost a week and spend time with my BFF.  We have known each other for 60 years...I know, you would think we were babies when we met, right?  ha ha...actually I as 7 and she was 8 (she is my OLDER best friend!!  **wink**)  So glad we like to stamp together!!
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
Heart Hugs, friends!
