Girl Time

Hi everyone! Happy Monday to you... I'm feeling refreshed and, if it's possible, all shopped out! As I mentioned on Friday, my girlfriends and I took our annual girls retreat to an outdoor market just east of us called Canton First Monday Trade Days. There are acres and acres of vendors selling all sorts of goodies... and you would not believe how much we bought this year! I'm surprised we got it all home in my husband's truck (I drove) without having to strap one of us to the roof! Aside from all the great shopping, we also stayed in our usual cabin and talked the night away... girl stuff... you know how it goes. Here's a photo of 5 of us - the 6th one had to leave early.

I know, I don't normally post stuff about my personal life, and I regret to inform you that because of my fantastic weekend, I did not do any stamping! I do have a fabulous card that my friend Marelle sent me, though, and I will show that to you instead. As you all know, Marelle is an incredibly talented stamper in Australia. She and I met about a year and a half ago and became fast friends. I am always honored to receive one of her beautiful cards!

Here is a close-up of the gorgeous flowers:

Thank you, Marelle, for brightening my day!

And thank you WISDOM, for another unforgettable weekend!!

I love Canton! I haven't been able to go this year yet :(. I'm hoping to get up there after the new year. I know you had a blast, I always do.

Where is your cabin. That photo is amazing and I love, love, love the lake in the background. Sounds like you had a great time, and maybe finished all your Christmas shopping!!! NOT.
