Meeting of a Cyber Friend

Last week Lisa and I met up with Trinh for lunch!  It was so exciting to actually meet a cyber friend in person, and especially such a talented one!

We learned a very interesting fact about Trinh, whom Lisa and I have been calling Trinh, right! Why not, that's how it's spelled, with a T!  Well, here is a heads up for everyone, just in case you get to meet this lovely lady, you need to say it like this: Ching!  We had a good giggle over this!

Here is the card I made for her:

Paper: PTI cardstock; Neenah
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Victorian Velvet & Fired Brick distress ink; Copics
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Dimensional foam; flower gems (HA); Clear embossing powder

That owl is simply the cutest thing I have seen in a long time!  But it's rather large and really takes up an entire card.  Not much to explain really.

Thanks for visiting!  I'm loving your comments!

Glad you had a fun visit Brenda! This owl is the cutest darn thing! Love the big ol eyes and the fact that you colored her pink!

Aw what an adorable card, Brenda! Wonderful colouring and shading on the owl and I love the pretty colours! How fun that you, Lisa and Trinh got to meet for lunch!

We learned the same thing last year at Scrapfest about, Trinh. We've all been pronouncing it wrong. So interesting that it's actually Ching. I'll bet she ADORED this card, Bren - just so cute! Did you take any photos of the three of you? Would love to see them! :)

Oh wow Brenda I am desperate to meet a cyber friend, how exciting for you. I love chatting like this but I need to meet someone in person. I have just found out that Cathy lives a few hours from me so perhaps there is still hope!! Love that cute owl by the way!!

Brenda, that is such a funny story...I would have never known that is how Trinh pronounces her name! How lucky to have met her...I bet you had a great time. I LOVE the card you made for her...super in pink. I'm so glad I ordered this owl stamp...can't wait to get it so I can make cards like yours! Thanks for the ongoing inspiration, Brenda!

Gorgeous card Brenda, how lovely to have met Trinh!!

Melissa Shea said...

That owl is adorable! I like that's it's so big and that she's pink! I laughed at "not much to explain really" because sometimes that's how I feel about my cards. I think those are the best kind :)
