Have a great time & a safe trip, Wendy!
Congrats to your winners (yesterday?) - we met "StampinBetsy" in Akron last weekend - she's a wonderfully fun woman & new friend!

Have a great trip. I am not good with directions either; in fact, probably the worst! I am heading up north to a stamp convention week-end in an hour, also about 4 1/2 hours and yes, my gps will be my guide. It's favorite word seems to be "Recalculating".

GPS - super companion on the road and great for getting you where you need to be. I could have used a road trip - I'm a better traveling companion than a computer! LOL Have lots of inky fun this weekend! My 2 cats chill like that but a chase/game of tag is usually not far behind.

Ahh. To have a cat's life! Then I'd have all the time I wanted to get inky fingers. Have a safe trip and share samples!

Enjoy those inky fingers! I had the most colorful (a collage of all the new Distress Ink colors)inky fingers this past Saturday with Wendy and a fun group of creative ladies at For Keeps Sake in St. Louis. So much fun! Can't wait for another opportunity!

If there's no ink on your fingers, you're doing something wrong.
Have a safe trip and a great weekend.

Got to meet you Friday night, and you signed the book I got. Got the sewing chipboard, came home and made a wall hanging for my mom's sewing room. Loved all your gorgeous work.

julie m said...

i had hoped to get to ankeny for the ranger 490 style class, but it just didn't work out. it is only a 2.5 hr drive, but as live-in caretaker for my mother i was unable to leave early enough to get there in time. i am so glad so many were able to go and have a good time. i will enjoy reading all about it.

Juliet A said...
