Well, this blogging and visiting has turned out to be very time consuming but I love, love, love it. So great to meet such talented cardmakers and everyone is so positive. Everyone in this world knows Darnell. She has single-handedly linked all bloggers together for the good of cardmaking. Darnell, you are terrific. Okay, I tried smacking acetate first thing this morning. Did it three times. Nope. I forgot to put it on the glossy paper. I needed to make a card for my friend that was here last week. She had a partial knee replacement today and I wanted to get it in the mail tomorrow so I went a different direction. She lives about 45 minutes away but we get together once a month to shop, eat and see a movie. We rented a house and lived with two other girls when we were all younger and we all met our husbands when we lived there!  Been friends a long time.  Here is her card. It's a hero arts stamp inked with coastal cabana. I think she will laugh at the greeting!  I couldn't get the card to stretch out like it should be. Don't know what happened to it but you get the idea. Be kind to each other.

Hi Brenda, just saw your comment over at Mrs. A, and that you were a new blogger. Popped over to say hi, take a peek around. Had to chuckle at your saying everyone knows Our Darnell! Isn't she a peach (and a talented one at that!). You'll have to visit us on Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground too...a lovely group of talented generous cardmakers. Such fun. I love your card (I haven't tried smacking acetate yet either). I've been blogging a little over a year. It's such fun, scary at first, but so many willing to give help if you ask. I'll invite you to visit me when you can, will join as a follower here, and then go browse some other posts here on your blog. TFS
