On the Road Again

Image result for seattle waWell, the first leg of the journey to Salt Lake City complete, we hunkered down in our Seattle motel room for the night.  Today we fly to Salt Lake City and meet our friends and get settled.  Wednesday we plan to do some sight-seeing and shopping, then the Conference begins on Thursday.

The trip has been a blast, so far, and by far the funniest time was had at our favourite restaurant, the Olive Garden, near Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham.

If you do end up there one day, make sure you ask for Will to be your server, because he is too funny.  He entertained us from appetizer to dessert and I'm sure we drove him crazy with our banter and laughter, but he was such a good sport and we left him with a nice tip and a beautiful thank you card that Jill Buehler made.

Today, I want to share my first swap card with you.  It is one that I shared before here, except I hadn't decided which embellishment I wanted to add to finish it all off.  I tried ribbons, buttons, brads, but finally settled on the Natural trim and Very Vintage Button you see here:

  • This is for a WOW Vintage Swap - right up my alley so to speak.  I just love the new Tea Party stamp set for its Vintage feel.
  • Don't you just love the way the Ruffle Stretch Trim goes around circles and ovals perfectly.  And since we now have the Ovals and Circles Collections Framelits, it's a match made in heaven!

  • You can see here that the Very Vintage Button is sewed onto the Naturals Trim Bow with some Wisteria Wonder thread I just happened to have!
  • I also used my machine to to a little sewing on the Afternoon Picnic DSP panel.
More tomorrow from Salt Lake City!  Ta, Ta for now!
