PB&J and CHA photos

Hello, my friends! I've missed you!!! I had a wonderful (and VERY busy) time at CHA but I am also glad to be home. I want to send another BIG thanks to all of the very talented gals who took over "Inspired By..." last week. I am completely blown away by all of their talent. And thanks to all of you for your visits and comments. You had me smiling every morning as I kicked Lisa off her computer, um... I mean borrowed Lisa's computer, to check my email.

Here is today's PB&J card. It features some brand spankin' new Penny Black Christmas stamps. Oh, my friends, the new catalog is to-die-for awesome. And just so you know, Mementos will be taking pre-orders for the new stamps ASAP. I will let you know the minute you can place your order. To watch a video tutorial demonstrating the creation of this card from start to finish, visit the Penny Black blog HERE or watch directly on YouTube in HD HERE.

Now for some CHA photos. I wasn't able to get many pictures taken because most of my time was spent doing Make and Takes at the Faber-Castell and Penny Black booths. (so fun!) Here are a few shots. This is a peek at some of the new stamps and cards from the Penny Black catalog:


And this is a shot of a great new product released from Faber-Castell- standard colored pencils. And let me tell ya, these color and blend sooooo smoothly: Here's a better shot of the cards I created to show the range of colors you can achieve with the colored pencils:
And another one of my favorite booths--- CANDI. Love, love, LOVE (did I mention LOVE?) all the folks there: And here's Lisa (Mementos owner and my dear friend) and I chillin' at the Cosmo Cricket booth: And our good friend, Sheila, drove up to check out all the goodies. Love ya, Sheila!










And finally, here's me and my new BFF, Chelsea, at the Faber Booth. SOOO glad we got to meet! Well, I think that's all for today, folks! See you tomorrow with a new featured artist. And I know I've said this before, but you are going to ADORE her work!! HUGS!

Hi Jill Sweetie. So glad to see that your back again. CHA looks like it was a ton of fun. Loved the pictures that you shared and those ladies were all so lucky to meet you. Hopefully we can hook up some day too! Your such a beauty you know. Your smile is gorgeous and you look so different, but yet so beautiful. So proud of you chicka! Left you some love over at Penny Black today on this card. You just knocked me off my chair with this masterpiece. I drool over everyone of your cards and some I look at over and over, but I think that this is the one that really captures my heart. That flower is amazing and I must have it. It is gorgeous. I think that my mind is made up and that I will be using it for sure and certain in my cardmaking this Christmas. Thanks so much for sharing about the Candy Embellies because I had a friend send me a dozen or so and I had no idea what they were or how to use them. Thanks so much for the heads up. Thanks again for asking me to be a Guest here at your blog. Your such a sweetheart. Hugs.

What a fun time you seem to have had Jill. Loved the PB & J video. Have already started on a card inspired by it. Looking forward to more goodies as I'm sure you have been inspired by CHA.
