Friendship Never Melts Away



I am so excited to share this card with you!  It makes me smile as I know I have been smiling for a few days as I have spent the time with some of favorite SCS friends--in person--at my house!  My friends Darlene and Carol are here again to join me at Camp Stamp-in-Oga, which was held yesterday.  Our good friend Kelly, from Miami, also joined us for the first time this year.  Yes, she did fly in from Florida, to Wisconsin, in January!  Just because she loves us!  Then, Jeanette came from Illinois and some "local" Wisconsinites, LJ and Terry are here too!  So, we had a full table of 7 at the stamp class yesterday morning at camp and then spent the rest of the day and night stamping away.  This afternoon, everyone is going to be at my house for a fun watercolor class, taught by my friend Kathy!  Tomorrow morning, I will take Kelly, Darlene and Carol to the airport and the three others leave later today.  I am sure the house will be very quite after they all leave, but I know we have had many, many laughs, smiles, hugs to hold us over until the next time............................

This card was made for the shoebox swap we decided to do while everyone was here. The theme we decide was snow--in honor of Kelly being here and wanting to see snow!  I sure hope her wish came through!

I thought the sentiment was perfect for our get together--and of course, it is a Whipper Snapper sentiment.  I did take Kelly, Carol and Darlene to Creative Pals, in Brookfield, on the way home from the airport on Thursday as it is the home of WSD! 

This is the card opened:


Here is the inside of my card.  It features a Gina K snowman image.  And--we also did make a stop at Village Ink & Paper in Greendale on Thursday. That is the home of Gina K.  I am sure that Kelly, Darlene and Carol helped the Wisconsin economy that day!


I hope you like my card and I am sure we had a wonderful time making these fun, snowy cards!  I bet I now have 6 sweet cards to help me remember such a fun few days!
