Merry Monday #293 Angels & Visiting with Blogging Friends.

This week I am your hostess for Merry Monday.
I would like you to use an angel/angels on your cards.  Come take a look at all of the inspiration by our Merry Makers and get ahead start on your Christmas cards.

I used this cute Digi stamp from Bugaboo, colored with Copics.

And a visit with Blogging Friends
So Colleen came up to visit  me on the Sunday before Memorial Day as we were having two guests join us on Wednesday the 30th.
Sunday and Monday, we spent some time visiting Col's aunts that live up here.
Tuesday, we went and helped Ramie with the triplets.
Colleen and one of the babies.  Not sure which one she held on Tuesday.

We picked up Marybeth from Marybeth’s time for paper
and Darrnell from djkardkreations at SeaTac Airport on Wednesday about noon for a very quick retreat, (visit)
On our way home we stopped at Impress at Southcenter, one of our only craft stores left.  

After an early dinner at Duke's Chowder House, we came to my house and here is a picture of us in my craftroom.
All day & night Wednesday we just visited and talked as if we had been friends all of our lives.
Thursday, Marybeth's sister, Marylou, (who lives about an hour away) came and spent the day with us.  We really didn't get much crafting done, but had fun none the less.

Marybeth and Marylou and Hammy.
Marybeth was trying out Catherine Pooler's Ink's and she and Darnell are sold.  Lol....

We went for lunch at Hop Jack's

Thursday evening they had an early surprise birthday party for me arranged by my BFF, Col
That was so sweet of them.  I was very surprised and got some lovely gifts and this yummy chocolate cake.   
Marylou took Marybeth home with her that evening and we missed her the minute she left.

Friday, we spent a little time in the Craft room, but had a pretty laid back day after a quick visit with the triplets.
Connor, Anna and Justin.

Oh these babies are just so sweet.  Love them so much.  Everyone is doing fine.  My sister and I are going over Tuesday and Thursday each week to help out and other times on call.  Lol.

Darnell stayed with us another day.  This picture is of us the day before she had to leave. 

Thanks for stopping by.
