Cards To Share

This past weekend I went to a scrapbooking retreat with the most amazing women I have ever met. We spent 4 days together just creating - some not as much as others - lol!! :-), laughing, eating (there was so much yummy food) and just having an amazing time. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to get to know tham all better and I can hardly wait until the next time we all get together.

And I actually made stuff!!! I am usually the one who just talks and socializes the whole time and gets absolutely nothing done. But I was a crafting fool this weekend and had fun playing with stamps and inks. I thought I would share the cards I created:

  1. I love your cards. But, you left out one. The castle was really cute!!! I loved meeting you, and I can't wait until we can all do it again!!!

  2. "some not as much as others", huh? Hmmm, wonder who you are referring to. LOVE your cards. They look even better in real life

  3. These are really wonderful! I especially like the sentiment on Love Never Fails! My favorite is Thank You for Your Friendship, though. Just beautiful!!!
    It is great to spend time creating with others of similar mind (my weekend is coming up in November.)
    Thanks for sharing!!!
