Meeting a Friend

What a great week, as I got to meet a blogging friend.  Vikki & I were born 3 days apart in different states, but have both lived in Oregon for many years. 
It felt like we'd been friends forever & we will definitely get together again.  We both love playing in the PTI challenges & sweet Vikki brought me a bunch of PTI tag die cuts--just what I needed for this week's MIM challenge.  I sent Vikki some embossing enamels--hopefully they arrive in time for her to use. 
Found a new color combo I really love:  Royal Velvet, Winter Wisteria & Sweet Blush.  The butterfly & sentiment are from PTI Butterfly Hope, the mat is PTI Mat Stack 3 & the background is Cover Up: Diamonds.  Since I was finally using some Stampendous Embossing Enamel (shabby white), decided to also add it to the edges of the mat, using Versamark ink.  I used a Quickie Glue pen before pouring the enamel onto the tag for my splatters--worked great.  Some of the glitter also attached even without any adhesive or ink & I really love the look. 
Finished off with white crochet thread wrapped & tied in a bow.  May end up putting an Easter greeting inside as I need another card to mail.  I'm playing just for fun at Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge using lavendar & layers and at Double D.  I'm entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
Edited to add: Also entering SSS National Craft Month.

  14. Aw, this is sweet! Butterflies and hope are a terrific combo for the Easter season. I almost thought my top inspired your card this week! LOL I'm so glad we could meet. 90 miles isn't too far when it's all interstate driving and we're retired.
