Last weekend, I visited my best friend, Karen, in Greenville, North Carolina. She moved there last year for a new job. We had a wonderful time catching up. I loved seeing their new home. She took me on a tour of East Carolina University and to the lovely town of Washington on the inner banks. Her husband is also a wonderful cook! It was such a relaxing weekend.
On my way home, I made my first stop ever at an Archiver's store! There is only one in our state, in Raleigh. It was just a mile off my route so it would have been a shame to drive on by. Of course, I shot my self-imposed budget in just a half hour. Good thing I'd given myself a time limit, too :-) One of the things I bought is the Whimsical House stamp set from Hero Arts used for this thank you card.
I've also got plans to use this for Nicole Magourik's Scrapbook Stamping class this month. The challenge is to create a scene on your scrapbook page and this set has several houses, the tree, a dog, cat, and a car so there are many things to put together.
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
