CASual Fridays with Vicki!


Guess what! I'm a Girl Friday for a day...today! My friend Vicki Dutcher (All I Do Is Stamp) sent me the best email back in November asking if I would like to join her as her guest for a fun CASual Fridays post. No hesitation here...heck yeah!! 

The CF team will be doing one on one challenges with their guests, each pair using the same set. I even got to pick our stamp set. I knew immediately I would chose the adorable Tutu set and even bought the coordinating dies to go with them! I am so completely smitten with those little ballerinas. Well, just see for yourself how cute they are!



I knew the first card I made would be for my niece's birthday next month. We've seen her and her big sister dance in their little tutus at many dance recitals. They danced at the same studio from the time they was just wee ones until they graduated from high school. They became student teachers and then teachers there! 



I couldn't stop at just one!
After all, there are three ballerinas in the set.


This one will go to my other dancing niece, now a mommy of three beautiful baby boys! Her birthday isn't until the early fall so I reached for some apricots aqua blues and golden yellows. 

I can't thank Vicki enough for the opportunity to join in this fun. Be sure to stop by her blog for a visit. I know this set will get a lot of use for my nieces and Sweet P too. Oh my goodness, can you picture our little Sweet P in a tutu...melt my heart!!!
