And a close up of the button focal piece:
Here is the Mojo sketch I followed (I did flip the sketch, actually mirrored it):
Yesterday I had the wonderful honor of meeting one of my super sweet online blogging buddies Colleen Dietrich of Dietrich Designs. We both live in New Jersey however, on opposite sides of the state. It only took me an hour to drive across the state to meet her at a Michael's. I'm amazed that we got any shopping done as we were kibitzing the whole time. I did manage to pick up some cool silver beaded ribbon at half off. Colleen picked up some lovely shiny snowflakes which she used beautifully on this card.
Here is a picture of us in the parking lot after I asked this sweet older woman if she would take our picture:
We had a great time shopping and having lunch. Four hours flew! I'm looking forward to seeing her again for a little more shopping and a little more kibitzing.
ETA: I do have VERY curly hair. I went to a wedding the day before and had a "blow out" from a salon. I couldn't bear to lose that scrumptious straight so I let it go one more day...
Have a great night and happy stamping!
