January 11

Happy Saturday!!

I've got lots of happy to share with you today,
and if you are one of our Canadian friends,
you will for sure want to stick around til the end of this post!!

Speaking of Canadian friends,
I'm super happy to share MY Candian friend's projects with you today!
Girl Friday Virginia had lots of fun with our new stamps and Fri-Dies.
Check these out!

First up is a combination of our new Heart Board Fri-Die,
Cupid's Arrows set and Wallflower
I love how she made the heart look like the arrow head shooting down her card.
And combining part stamped images with a few of the die cuts really gave it alot of dimension and pop!
That little sentiment from Wallflower fits so perfectly with this card,
and don't even get me started on that pefectly placed random sequin!!

Next up is Love Notes...

Gosh I love this!  She created such a wonderful background 
by stamping parts of the music bar in random lengths.
Love that so much!!!

and finally, Heart Note Fri-Die!!

Is that not just the cutest card???
Think how happy you'd make somebody when they found it in their mailbox, 
or maybe on their desk :)
Virginia is a star!!

So, now I get to share even MORE happy
for our Canadian friends!!

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps can now be found at 

If you are lucky to live near Port Colborne, Ontario
you've got to stop by and say hi!!
Doesn't that store look delightful?  
And they have fun classes too!
There is a wonderful assortment of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps that should arrive any day,
which means you can get what you want without paying US shipping prices!
And if she doesn't have the set you "need" just ask, she'll be able to get it for you :)
Woot Woot!!

OK, that's it for today!
Be sure to stop by tomorrow for our special invitation post.

But you have to come back in the morning to get the details *wink*

Virginia is definitely a star! She stretched her dies on the first card using leftovers from a previous card. The sentiment and single sequin are perfect. Her placement of the musical notes creates a lovely pattern on the second card. Love the tiny bow :). And the last card is gorgeously CAS - great colors, too.

I sure wish we had retail stores here -- they are all closing up! I miss the instant gratification of walking out the door with product in my hand~ If I ever make it to Ontario I am so at this store ;)

Gorgeous cards, Virginia! The first one is my absolute favorite, I love the colorful heart and all the dimension. I also love the embossed stripe, it really stands out against the white background and those warm colors.

As soon as I saw the thumbnail, I thought "Queen of Hearts!" Love that you used your left-overs right away. I am making a deal with myself that I will do the same thing too. All gorgeous cards from Virginia, as usual!
