A Challenge and some FUN!

My card today is for MFP's Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #30. This week Geri challenged us to use a circle on our cards. This one is done in Cool Caribbean and white, and the stamp set is by MFT.
On a personal note, I was invited to a stamp get together yesterday where I finally got to meet some fabulous bloggers/friends I've admired and followed for a long time! Here are a few photos from yesterday.
That's LeAnne of Wee Inklings on the left, Korin (the owner of Sweet n Sassy Stamps) in the center, and Denise (the Paper Landscaper) on the right. Just look at those fabulous smiles!!
And here's Denise and LeAnne together. I've followed their blogs since I can't remember when, and I admire their work SO much! It was really exciting to finally meet them in person!
And here's a group shot of all of us. In the front row L to R is Pattie, Denise, Cherie, & Korin. In the back is Janice, my friend Jill of Ribbon Challenged, Me, and LeAnne.
Ladies you all made my day yesterday and I'm SO glad I got to meet you all in person! I just wish I'd taken pictures of all the gorgeous cards everyone created before we headed home!
That's all for me today.........I'm off to watch the last NASCAR race of the year and see who becomes the latest champion! Have a super Sunday!

What fun, Carol! Now I will know who I am looking for when I walk around AC Moore and Michaels! Janice is the only one I have met, and she is a peach. I am sitting here with an unhappy hubby cause he forgot to put in his Nascar picks for his fantasy team. Oops!

LeAnne said...

Carol, it was wonderful meeting you & your friends and everyone else!! You've inspired me to get out this cute little set and make something with it....maybe with CIRCLEs too!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend...looking forward to seeing you again---hopefully SOON!
