SOME RAKS TO SHARE

Happy Friday everyone! As you know (or maybe not!) I am going to a crop today and plan to be cropping for 14 hours!!!! So, I gave my hand a rest last night so I can start off the day with minimal pain and suffering - LOL! I had to pack up all my stuff anyway - I swear I end up taking the whole house, I just cannot decide what to take! Do any of you have that problem or is it just me??? Anyway, yesterday I received a few RAKs in the mail and I wanted to share how gorgeous they are!! I feel so very blessed that I have met such wonderful people through blogging - who knew??!! I am excited that I will get to meet some of you in person at Convention - if you are going, let me know, I would love to meet ya!!! So, here is the first one! It is from Nikki at Military Wife Stampin' Spot. Have I told you how MAD TALENTED this woman is???!!! She makes gorgeous cards, and I look forward to her blog everyday! We have become good friends through blogging and I hope to meet her in person someday! Isn't this beautiful??! I love all the hardware, and it feels so very much like summer and the tropics - thanks so much Nikki, I totally love it and it is now on my RAK Wall of Fame (yes, I have a whole wall where I hang these beauties I receive so all my guests can see them too!) This next one is from a very special bloggin' friend, Melissa at Simply Pink. She is a total sweetheart and so very talented! I admired a stamp image she used on her blog and she sent me some along with this wonderful card! I am so using these images today - I will share the pics, I promise!! This card is totally cute, I love the spring colors, and it is so very girly and so very me! My daughter asked if she could have it, because "It Rocks, Mom"! Melissa, you totally made my day, my friend, big hugs to you!!!!! Now, my husband saw both of these cards today when I opened them and he said to me, "wow, you have some very talented friends, those cards look professional!" And, I said, "honey, they are"!!!! Now, I am off to pack up the car and drive away to stamp and scrap my little heart out!! Have a wonderful weekend all! I will have great things to share with you tomorrow!

Oh what happy cards! You SO deserve them! YES, I have that same problem! In fact, I don't go to crops unless I have a specific book/occasion I'm working on because I can never decide what I'll need! Have fun!
