Fit to burst

Oh my goodness, I am fit to burst, and have been since earlier this year when I was asked by the amazing people at Stampavie if I would like to go to the CHA with them!!  It actually took about a half hour for it to sink in, but once it had I nearly smashed the mouse in my haste to hit reply to the email lol.  It’s a dream come true and this lil ole country bumpkin will be making her first foray to the USA!!  And I am going by myself, how’s that for BRAVE lol..
So, I thought I would share the joy and give some Stampavie stamps away today (I will be back later with my card – a sneak peek for Whimsy Stamps so I hope you can pop back).  There are two of my most favourite stamps up for grabs .. Sarah Kay’s Can I tell you a Secret? and Lucy & Kitty.  It’s the usual drill, leave your name in Mr Linky and I will draw a winner tomorrow
