Triple Thanks So Much

Bonjour-Hello.......Happy Sunday Stamps.  You've got to excuse me today - I'm currently in Ottawa, and you hear just about as much French here as English.  
Hayley has a great sketch for us this week - I love the little string of banners.....and I love how our design team members have interpreted the sketch in a variety of be sure you check out the blog for inspiration.

I created this card before I left home for holidays - I used a piece that I had thought of using for another card, but set aside.  Ya gotta keep those little "bloopers" - because they end up being useful in the end.  I used watercolour paper for the base of the focal piece - which is how I created the aged/distressed edge.

I've been having a fantastic holiday - and one memorable highlight will be the evening I met two members of Design Teams while in Ottawa.  Hayley (from Sunday Stamps) and Tara (from MDS Monday) met me for dinner at the Baton Rouge and it was like we were getting together as old friends instead of meeting as cyber friends for the first time.  Good food, good laughs, good memories, new friends.  I had a outstanding time and I look forward to getting together with these ladies again in the future!!!

I hope you are having some memorable times this summer.
Thanks for stopping by here for a wee visit.

So fabulous that you all got to meet! I'm a wee bit jealous, I must say. :) I love when those "bloopers" become useful on other projects. Your card turned out great. Hope you're enjoying your holiday!

Sounds like you are having a fabulous holiday! Love that you used the Mosaic Punch to create your banner. Great card as always.

Love this card, Joan! That "blooper" looks amazing! I don't know how you did it, but it looks like something out of a movie or something!

It was so fabulous to meet you. And you're absolutely right, it was like catching up with a lifelong friend. I certainly hope we get to do it again sometime!
