That's What Friends Are For ! Blog Hop

Well Good Mornin' Peachies!  

Long time no see!!  

Firstly, I would like to thank our Lorie Souther for organizing our first Alumni Hop!  I thought I had it bad because my project didn't get finished (that's another story).  Lorie literally had to travel in her car (at night) to find internet because a storm had knocked out their server at home! 

Secondly, thanks to all of our Peachy Keen Designers Alumni who have graciously kept us as friends and have continued to support Peachy Keen Stamps in their blog posts!

Thirdly, my project... I can show you what it looked like tonight.. before the air compressor fell on my foot!  I had to leave it sit right where it was and decided to go to E R for an x ray.  NOT broken but VERY sore, pretty colors and swollen like nobody's business!  Dave slept in the chair while waiting for the doctor to return with the after care instructions.

Since the project is about friends, I used the gnomes that I colored at Klatt's Kamp.  Kim Score invited me to a stamping retreat with a wonderful group of ladies.  I colored all weekend and had an amazing time!!  I'm not much for putting cards together... Anyway, I wanted to surprise Kim and show her that I used the adorable paper she gave me- the mushroom paper!!  (winks)

And I am finally done with the sign!  Thank you all for your super sweet comments and my foot is healing just fine!!  



LET'S HOP!! 

Be sure to leave a comment on each and everyone's blog along the hop!! AND BE SURE TO GO BACK to the last link our home blog page to leave a comment that you have completed the hop!  You'll have a chance to win one of three gift certificates!! We'll hop for two days and then announce the winners on Wednesday, May 9th!  

Okay, if you have arrived here from my best friend in all of England, Vivienne Holden, then you are on the right track... Oh my and now you will be on your way to see what the lovely and talented Ruthie has in store for you!!

Here is the order in case you've lost your way...

Thank you again everyone!  Have a beautiful day!

  1. Good grief! I've heard as little as 3lbs dropped on your foot can break it. Thank goodness it's not broken! I can't imagine how painful that is.

    I just love your card! So colorful and I love the sparkles! I hope are able to rest and get that foot back to normal!
