I made this card for LilLuvsStampin. Here is why. Sometime back I posted a thread asking everyone to share how they came up with their SCS name. This was LilLuvsStampin's post:
Even though my first name is Charlene, why do I use Lil? This golf league I belonged to always had these 3-day golf outings (pardy hardy!) to beautiful Cadillac, MI, and we always had a banquet night where we dressed up somewhat fancy schmancy for the dinner. My husband and I decided that we were going to surprise the gang and dress up in 1940s style. We even went to a local theatre shop to find vintage clothing. Not only did I have an awesome sequined dress, hat with veil, seamed nylons, and long evening gloves (with the jewelry on the outside), but I also found one of those long cigarette holders so I could walk around saying "dahling." Since we were in costume, we decided we had to have fictitious names. I thought Lillian sounded very 40ish, so I dubbed myself Lil. He loves the Blues Brothers and dubbed himself Jake, so we became Jake and Lil. When I became familiar with SCS, I decided to use Lil in my username; hence, LilLuvsStampin!
The long panel with the Lil on it is covered in diamond dust. Scan doesn't do it justice!

Cindy, I actually have tears in my eyes because I am so touched by your gesture. What a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful card made with so much thoughtfulness for lil' ol' me. I will cherish it forever. Thank you!
