GREAT FRIEND WORKSHOP CARD

**PLEASE HEAD ON OVER TO THE SCRAPANDSTAMPSATURDAY SITE AND CHECK OUT THE SPOTLIGHT POSTS FOR THE DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS AND LEAVE THEM SOME LOVE - FIRST CHALLENGE WILL BE THIS SATURDAY, THE 6TH OF JUNE AND YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT!!!!*
Happy Monday all!!!! Sorry for ditching you all weekend, but Tony was home, and we were super busy with family commitments and then he took me out to dinner to celebrate my new job - YAY!!!! Yesterday I went shopping and ended up getting stuff for the kids and nothing for me, lol!! But, I had fun anyway :-) So, today I thought I would share one of the cards we did at my workshop last week, it is with one of my favorite stamp sets out of the mini catty, which by they way goes away at the end of the month!!! I used lots of Big Shot items on this card - the outside trim is actually the negative portion of the Top Notes Die, and I love the effect! And, the flowers are also one of my dies! I swear, I don't know how I ever lived without my Big Shot, lol!! This card was a HUGE hit at the workshop and they all wanted to see how the Big Shot worked (yep, I brought it, *wink*) so needless to say, many of them will have new dies to play with soon and I just know they will love them as much as I do! I will share some more of them tomorrow, but for now, I am going to leave you the recipe and then I am off to fill out all my new employee paperwork!! I want to say a HUGE THANKS to all of you who have been soooo sweet with your comments and your emails about my new job!! And, don't worry - stamping is so much a part of me that there is no way that I could give it up so I will be working on a new routine that will totally include some stamping time in my nightly routine *wink* Now, off to blurf and catch up with you all before I head out!! Thanks for stopping by!
