A couple cards and a fabulous crafty get together

Today's post is fun, because if you click here to visit Jen's blog you can see where I was to create these two cards--- Jen's house.  I'm in Seattle visiting my sister and couldn't come to town without tracking down some friends.   I had the most fabulous day (scroll down for a photo of us and the fabulous Ms. ~amy~ having lunch).  It's so nice to finally meet some of my fabulous bloggy pals, so happy to say that we had a great time together, and despite my sister's concern over me spending the whole day with someone I'd never met before, we got along famously. 

This card combines The Craft's Meow sketch and the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge (inspiration colors, although not sure where the woodgrain fits in?).

 


This card uses The Play Date Cafe colors.

Lunch with Jen and Amy.

And since life is hard here's a picture of me skiing today!  According to the locals it doesn't always look this amazing in Seattle (blue skies), but I'm soaking up the sunshine and loving it.
 
Materials: Paper Smooches Hot Concoctions, Cosmo Cricket Nantucket paper, Spellbinders circle die, recycled Starbucks holder, PTI card stock, Versafine black ink, white ink, May Arts natural twine, button
 
Valentine's Card: Impress border, PTI Tiny Treats, ink and embossing powder, PTI cream card stock

Love the nod to the real coffee sleeves on your fun card, and the skiing looks amazing. Well, kind of scary to me actually. Looks like you had a great time too, wish my flat ears could really hear and my flat mouth could have piped in-someday, right?
