Thanks Ever So Much

Hi there...we arrived home safe and sound from Chicago yesterday afternoon and I had a little time to get inky.  I decided to pull out my Ranger distress inks and create a very fall thank you card.  I love the gorgeous fall colors and tried to recreate them on  my card for this week's Wee Memories Challenge.  The challenges is sponsored by Paper Smooches.  I love the big PS sentiments...

Now...back to Chicago!  I mentioned last week that I was going to meet up with Cristina Kowalczyk.  We met for breakfast on Sunday morning.  I really wish we lived closer as I know we'd have a ball crafting together and sharing stories about our families.  Like me, Cristina, is very close to her mom and we loved talking about our families.  Her little girl, Sofia, is beyond adorable.  So petite and absolutely beautiful with big huge brown eyes.  She was a bit shy...otherwise I would have carried her around with me!  Here's hoping that we can get together again soon.

That's all for today folks...I'll be back soon with more photos from our Chicago trip.
