Monday at the Cafe and a bit more.

Warning, this is a lengthy post so if you want to you can skip all the small talk and scroll down for today's Monday At The Cafe.

I'm finally getting back in the swing of things and fingers crossed all my postings will now be on schedule.

This weekend was the fabulous North Texas Swap and I had so much fun. I'm still smiling and admiring all the fun cards the ladies had for me to make. I wanted to share some pics of a few of the ladies I had the good fortune to hang out with.
My friend Sandy who flies in for this event every year. She always has amazing designs but better than that, she is a wonderful person and I look forward to seeing her every year.
My dear friend Suzy and our fearless leader for this year's swap. She put together an amazing get together and was so calm and collected the whole time. Suzy girl, you rock!
I finally got a picture with the one and only Jen Del Muro. She's been at every swap for the last three years and I always enjoy spending time with her. She is so sweet and uber talented to boot. I just hope some of her stamping genius has rubbed off on me.
My fabulous table mates. Me, Libby, Christy and Susan. We spent the whole day together and had the greatest time. I especially loved the sound effects coming from the other side of the table. (Susan, you know what I'm talking about) You ladies are the best!

This is my friend Sharon, myself and Libby. Sharon is the person responsible for getting me to my first NTS three years ago and I just love her to pieces. She's a wonderful person and so talented. I'm glad I got to see her again.

This was the door prize that I took to exchange. The votive is actually a wine glass with a paper shade that I made to match my card.

Look for lots Cat's Pajamas cards in the future because I was the lucky recipient of the door prize they donated to the swap. There were three sets of Clearly Swanky stamps, ribbon, buttons, 3-d frames and flowers from Petaloo and a new border punch. I would have posted a picture but I tore into it as soon as I got it home and was ashamed to show my debauchery:)

Now to the business at hand. Today's Monday At The Cafe.

One of the ladies (I believe it was JT-SCS name) at the swap brought these cute little treat holder for cookies and I loved mine so much, I thought it would be perfect to showcase one of the newly released sets at The Cutting Cafe.

Major cuteness going on here. This is from Regina's Thank Ewe set and you get the background and four sheep images. This is one of the small images. It was the perfect size. I colored her just around the edges using my gray Copic marker. I'm gonna be busy making several of these to hand out to the teachers on Friday.

If you think this is cute you should check out the Little Ladybug, Cutie Pie and Sweet Heart set. So many possibilities!

Well, I think I've dragged this on long enough. Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by my little piece of blogland. I'm outta here. TTFN

Hugs, Becky

Becky, it was so nice to meet you Saturday - let's keep in touch and stamp together sometime. I loved your door prize. Either Christi or Debbie at my table won it and we were going crazy over how cute it was. I also love your cookie pouch - how creative!
