That BIG NEWS card...

I was having so much fun playing with a stamp set I have never used before. I borrowed it from a friend of mine, hi Heidi *waving*, and I just couldn't wait to post this card. As much as I like to go all out on cards, sometimes less is more...you know what I mean...the Julie Ebersole way. Speaking of JulieHRR (my hero), if you haven't visited her blog lately she received a message from her hero...THE ONE and THE ONLY Carol Duvall!!!! You must go and read her post...she tells it like it is in that fun, excited and bouncy way Julie can tell stories...so go read it!!! I know what it is like to be excited about something like that...earlier this week JulieHRR posted a comment in my SCS gallery. What an honour! And of course I will never forget, a few summers ago I had a unique opportunity to star in the French version of the SU! Getting Started Video with my Canadian friends Caroline and Corinna and got to meet Shelli Gardner (my other hero) and family. She is a doll isn't she?
The point of this chat? Well it was to introduce my card of course but it just goes to show you how little things can make a BIG difference and leave a long lasting impression. There is more big news to come...

Just over 9 hours until I draw the winner for the Lavishly Embellished goodies!!! I have LOVED the comments so far. You have given me some good ideas and topics for discussion. Thank you all for not only leaving comments but for also subscribing to my blog. I look forward to sharing things with you now and well into the future.

Hope you are having a fun stamping day. I just got (ya a little behind the times) a crop-a-dile today so I am off to play...

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
