Meeting a Friend

Quite some time ago I stumbled onto a wonderful blog by a VERY talented and crafty designer- Amy Sheffer. Pickled Paper Designs always has the coolest cards and I try to check in daily. I am not sure when I realized that Amy lived quite close to my friend Peggy. But I just couldn't wait to meet her and we were actually able to meet this trip.Amy was so very sweet. I felt like I already knew her so well and and the time passed quickly away as we chatted like old friends.
She showed me some Copic tricks she recently learned in a local class. I'd started buying my own Copics one at a time with my Hobby Lobby coupons. I'm anxious to get more now so I can practice my recently acquired "skills".

Here is the card I finally completed today with the image I colored at Amy's house:Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Baby Buttercup (Stamping Bella); Noteworthy (SU)
Ink~ Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Gable Green, Palette Black Noir
Paper~ PaperTrey SS White, Pretty in Pink, The Paper Studio DP- Bella Pink Scroll
Accessories~ Cloud Scissors, corner rounder, ribbons, Copics, 2 way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter

Thank you so much for letting me spend the afternoon with you, Amy!

What a beautiful card! I enjoy Amy's blog and creations; I think it would be so neat to meet in person stampers who I know only by reading their blogs and seeing their cards and art online. Sounds like an absolute wonderful day. TFS.

That's very cool you discovered you lived near one another and were able to meet. If only we lived in the same country! LOL. Beautiful card, I love the glitter you added - it makes the image so much more beautiful.
