A new friend!

I have been a member of a new Circle Journal group (30-somethings) for a few months now, and through this online group I met Sue, who lives down in Castle Rock - about an hour from Conifer. Today we met in person! I drove down to Sue's house, and we hung out there for a little while: she showed me her lovely home, her (very tidy and organized) scrap room, and her amazing photographs of the beautiful outdoors here in CO. I had brought a few magazines to show her my published cards, and showed her the ATG adhesive gun :)

Next we went out for lunch and then - of course - we headed over to a scrapbook store (Your Scrapbook Destination). We did some shopping there, and still had some time left, and Hobby Lobby was just a minute away, so we went there too before I had to head home in time for Nattie and Jamie getting home. It was so much fun to get together with a fellow scrapper whom I've been chatting with via e-mail for a while now! Our daughters are only a year apart, so they will get along well I'm sure :) Thank you, Sue, for a great day! I wish I hadn't needed to leave so soon though!

In the spirit of friendship, here's a friendship card for today :) Stamps by Hero Arts (flowers) and Hampton Art (clocks). Thanks for stopping by!

It is I who needs to thank you!! It was awesome that you came down here and shared your day with me! It was fun to finally meet and talk in person - you can say so much more than via email! And THANK YOU for all the goodies!!! Let's do it again REALLY SOON!

That is so nice. I'm sure you both had a great time. Sounds like you both picked up some goodies today.
I just love the card. Those flowers just look like they are jumping off the card. Great job

Sounds like a fun day! It's nice to have a scrapping pal nearby. My friend Jeannie & I do all our scrappy stuff together... We're going to a big retreat this weekend. :D Oh...LOVE that card. I really like how you used a second image to give some of the flowers dimension. I'm going to have to try that. TFS! :)
