Happy Anniversary..Happy Anniversary- sing it with me!!!
**please note this is my second post for today, pls scroll down for my Oh Alice card**
Happy Anniversary...HAAAPPPY ANNIVERSAARRYYYYYY.......hope that you aren't reading this first thing in the morning and my singing gave you a headache or worse...made you spill your cup of tea!! If so my apologies but I am just bursting with happiness and pride that my BSF Kimmie's stamping company- Kraftin' Kimmie's stamps is one year old!! In celebration I used one of Steven's new Miles stamps Birthday Friends and made a gift card holder. The green slot you see in the second picture is where you slide the gift card. I designed this project for the hugely successful Kraftin' Kimmie stampalooza we had last Saturday and I'm not just saying this because I made it but the ladies LOVED IT and it went over well.
Okay cue the dreamy sounding music...I still remember the day we were in her car and she made me promise to keep a HUGE secret....then she paused for what seemed like forever...and then she shared after I clutched my heart dramatically that she was starting her own stamp company. THUD!!!! Good thing I was already sitting down as let's face it...it's a dream many of us crafters have and she had the guts and courage to follow that dream and make it come true! And while she talked about her plans and goals and the steps she had already taken I was honestly just wondering if she was going to let me be on her Design Team....hee hee. I started practising my puppy dog eyes in my mind to be ready for whenever the subject of DT came up. We excitedly spent the whole ride talking about her new venture and what the name would be. I am pretty sure I am the one who thought up the name...(not really but it really makes her angry when I make stuff up so I do it all the time *giggle*). It's pretty much all we talked about for the next few months and I loved when she would send me artists she was finding to see what I thought of their work. And when Annie's images came along.....another huge THUD!!!!! Yep Love at First sight for that girl's mad skills!
Anyhoo...now that I am boo hoo'ing with happiness let's get on to the details of today's hop with it's special guests. And don't forget to leave a comment at each blog because there is candy hidden along the way!
