Waiting and Watching. . . . .and a Fun Day!

Hi all!

Just want to let everyone know that I've been watching the number of my followers for awhile now, and it is currently at 99! As soon as I get one more follower, and it hits 100, I will have a giveaway to celebrate and to thank all of you!

I had a fun day yesterday! Met with our Hero Arts hostess, Linda and other Flickr friend, Anne at Archiver's, in the Mall of America! We shopped, had coffee, talked and laughed! So nice to see both of them! Here we are, holding our new Hero Arts goodies.



And here's a card I made for a friend's birthday, with my new stamps.



Hope you are all having a nice weekend! I'm on vacation this week and loving it! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Edited to say a big thank you to Janet!! (jinty007) She just pushed me up to 100! YAY!! I'll post my giveaway tomorrow, so make sure to stop by then!

Woohoo! Congrats on hitting 100 (almost) followers! What a milestone! I wish I can sign up to follow (again!). I'm sure it won't be long that you get the 100th follower! Thanks so much for sharing this happy photo. The three of you look like little girls in the candy factory...in this case, the stamp heaven :) So glad that you got to see each other again! I'm NOT jealous....

Barb, You are now at 100, I am a bit astonished really that I wasn't already following your blog - I was so sure I was. Never mind....better late than never is my most often used mantra - LOL
