A RAK...and I've been Tagged!

I had to share these two cards with you, made by my dear friend Carol aka carol_PA925 on SCS. Actually, a RAK is a random act of kindness. Frankly, she meant to send this to wasn't random. LOL!

Carol and I have never met. She lives in Pennsylvania, and we became friends through my blog and my store. No....we became GREAT friends! She's one of the sweetest ladies I know, a very talented stamper, and she is very special to me! Be sure to check out her SCS gallery HERE .

This card is one Carol made and emailed a picture to me because I asked to see what she did with the Northwoods Poinsettia and Pine stamp she got from my store. Isn't it beautiful? I had never seen it done in white, and I think it's just awesome! The next time I use this stamp I must CASE her idea and make the poinsettias white.

Thanks, my dear friend. You are the best...and I love you!

AND...I was tagged by Gabriela . According to the rules, I'm supposed to list 7 interesting things about myself. Now that's pretty hard to do....I don't really think I'm all that interesting!

1. I have two grown sons, 6 grandchildren, and I've been single for 30+ years. If you knew me better you would understand the last part! LOL!

2. In real life, I am the chief deputy tax assessor for the parish in which I live. It's a very serious job, and as you would suspect, the tax assessor is not typically "loved" due to the type of work we do. That is totally out of character for me, since I tend to be a people pleaser.

3. Many of my friends think I'm a workaholic. Frankly, I would disagree with that. I like my play time, but tend to be "driven" when it comes to managing my business. It's my passion, and a commitment that I take very seriously.

4. I make friends easily, and become very attached to many of them. Some of my design team members and customers are my bestest friends. :-)

5. I LOVE red wine and reduced-fat Cheeze-Its.

6. As extroverted as I am, I need a lot of alone time to recharge.

7. My secret desire is to take art lessons. Maybe when I retire? I've never had an art lesson in my life, and I think it would be an awesome experience to learn the right way to do what I do. wasn't all that interesting, but it's hard to think of 7 things, ya know?

Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be back tomorrow night with a new card.

I'm actually blushing and seriously humbled right now because your generosity has no bounds! It's an honor to call you "my friend" and I owe much of what I've learned about stamping and coloring from visiting your wonderful blog!!!

Great cards by your friend! I enjoy all your cards as well - gorgeous!
It was interesting reading the 7 facts about you. :) I lived in Bossier City in the late 80's...former life...I would imagine it is much different now. :)
