You're Invited!


We are very excited to extend an invitation to Gina K Designs November Release Party. We have a fun evening planned for you - chatting, prizes, challenges, stamp set reveals, design team shares, and most importantly, you can start shopping at 7 p.m. CST!

If you came from  Emily's, you're at the right place. If not make sure to head over to StampTV where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

This card just gives me warm-fuzzies!  However out-dated that term might be, sometimes it is still the most accurate choice!  These "knitting needles" and the close-knit friends sentiment make me smile from the inside out!   For two nights in a row last summer during the week of CHA in Chicago, I had dinner at Gibson's Steak House.  The first night was with a bunch of Gina K friends (pictured here!), and the next with some of the SCS girls, a few GKD friends among them!  

As we were leaving the restaurant, Jimmi showed us all these little Gibson's toothpick matchbooks and of course we each had to have one!  Hehehe...obviously she was impressed by them because she actually took this picture!  ;)  

As soon as I saw them they reminded me of a pair of miniature knitting needles!  I finally came across the perfect image and sentiment to go with them!  And yes...I really did knit a few stitches with them, which was not easy!  

This would be the perfect card for another close-knit friend who's into knitting now!  I miss seeing her lately, we have both been so busy!  Time for a get-together!

Hope to see you at the party!  Here are all the details:
Head on over to Donna's to see what she's sharing today...I'll see you back here tomorrow for the beginning of our three day Inspiration Blog Hop series for November!
