I'm a Girl Friday!




Yes, it's true! I am officially a Girl Friday at CASual Fridays!!
I'm honored and excited to be in the company of an amazingly talented group of designers
and can't wait to get started with the challenges.

Michele is offering a lucky commenter from my blog the chance to win either
a CASual Fridays stamp OR Fri-die of your choice. How awesome is that?
And we were all asked some fun questions so please bear with my not-so-fun answers:

Q: How long have you been a card maker, and how were you first introduced to it?
A: I can't pinpoint an actual date, but a rough estimate would be 20 years ago
when a friend showed me heat embossing and I was mesmerized. I still am.

Q: What color are your toenails painted right now?
A: Sally Hansen's 170--Pink Slip

Q: If your family locked up your crafty supplies for an entire month, what would you do instead?
A: Probably travel somewhere that involves a passport.

Q: Favorite thing to order at Starbucks:
A: Part of me wants to say "Cranberry Bliss Bars", but it's really a grande
Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino with soy, hold the whipped.

Q: You've reached your destination but just as you are turning off your car, a song comes
on the radio and you are sooo happy to hear it that you sit in your car until it's over
(singing along is optional *wink*). Name that song.
A: "Don't Stop Believin'"--the Journey version with Steve Perry. Cranked up high.

Don't forget to leave a comment here and on the CASual Fridays blog
for more chances to win! Michele will be choosing a winner and posting
the winners' names tomorrow on the CASual Fridays blog so check back then.

And get ready for Challenge 129 starting this Friday, February 28th.
Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing in my excitement!
