The more we play ...

What an emotionally exhausting week.  Pneumonia has hit hard in our little corner and after caring for sick kids, sanitizing and sanitizing and sanitizing, working, doing schoolwork ... I needed some GIRL TIME!!  I got together last night with a few friends.  We chatted and laughed and even managed to craft a bit!!  Nothing to lift your spirits like crafting with the girls.  My Stampin' sister Deanna showed us how to make roses from the Ornament punch ... she had seen this on the internet.  I'm not sure how often I would make these as they are big for cards or pages ... what ideas does everyone have to use them for?  I also played with my new favorite stamp set Abundant Hope ... it complements the Tea Party DSP perfectly!  I can't wait to sit down and play again.  Though we started at 6:30pm and didn't end until 10:30 pm - we chatted and shared ideas, product favorites etc. more than we managed to actually craft!  I wouldn't trade times like that for anything!  True friends are like family and time with them is to be cherished! 

~~  Never say you lost a friend, because if friendship is capable of ending, it never even existed! ~~

Thanks for stopping by!  Your comments are my inspiration!

Wow! Beautiful flower! I gotta try to make one! Glad you had the time to stamps with friends. It is always fun to stamp with someone who love stamping also!

I had a great time, Sam! Looking forward to it again. If only I could do more crafting while talking. Here I thought I was a multi tasker!!!! Apparently not! But the talking was just as fun!!!
And I left with a mind full of "to dos", like today I am going to work on the calendar idea you did for your mom (except it will be for me!) Next time I'll go with a plan in my head of what I want to make and perhaps I'll be more productive than 3 cards and some punches.
