Hello … bonjour … hope your week has been going along wonderfully! Before I get to the news of a lovely visit I received recently, I have a CAS card to share for a quartet of challenges that just seem to fit together beautifully. Want to see …
This sweet bloom is from a WPlus9 flower builder set … there are lots of other images as well … I just wanted to let this one take centre stage! It’s stamped just off the edge of a white card panel and has the flower head coated copiously with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle … it’s just about visible on the top two petals if you peer in a bit. I added a sentiment from SSS and some crystal bling before popping the panel up on craft foam onto a card base that had been trimmed along the bottom with washi tape.
I’m joining in with these playing-nicely-together challenges (badges below) …
Less Is More – Celebrations/Festivals … it’s the 300th … congratulations, Chrissie and the team … what a fantastic milestone! I have a soft spot for LIM as it was the first challenge I played along with, way back when we were all still young … and when we were still in double digits!
Virginia’s View – Stripes/Plaids
Tic-Tac-Toe – CAS, Builder Stamps, Pearls/Gemstones
SSS Work It Wednesday – Use a Simon Brand Product
Now, that wonderful visit. I was thrilled a few months ago to get a note from my lovely friend Barb at Love2Colour that she and DH Cal were going to be making the trip from California to France for an amazing tour … and that they would be within a couple of hours of us during one of their overnight stops! The timing was perfect (just a few days before I headed to the Lake House) … and on a sunny Sunday afternoon at the beginning of October, we met Barb and Cal at their hotel in Bordeaux.
What a fun and delightful afternoon and evening we had together … and what a delicious dinner we enjoyed at a great restaurant recommended by the hotel concierge. Barb and Cal … thank you … it was truly a joy to meet you … and to spend time together IRL. One day, we may even get to do the same thing in reverse … what an adventure that would be!
Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
