So, now I would like to share something else with you that totally made my day...I made this scrapbook page using the new Teresa Collins' line and I have fallen in love with her stuff!! Anyway, my husband just thought it was great and told me I should send it to her so I did - AND SHE POSTED IT ON HER WEBPAGE!!!!! She also sent me the sweetest email about how much she loved the tribute to my husband and that she loved that he was so supportive and "got it"! What do you all think?? I used a sketch courtesy of Lesli at Dragonfly Time(yep, I told Teresa too!) and made the page totally about my man!! Isn't he a hottie - *wink*? I did do some stamping down the sides of the page with my Baroque Motifs stamp set as well as used a flower (which I stamped on) and Rhinestone Brad from my Pretties Kit, but the rest is all from Teresa Collins. I got all of this wonderful product in the April Kit from Coconut Scrapshop so if you want one, get on over there and get one!! Jen has fabulous scrapooking kits, I totally love them!! Okay, now I am done with today's post and if you are still with me, then you are a good friend indeed - LOL! See ya tomorrow with a special addition to the blog candy and another page I did!! Smooches to all of you!!

I AM SUCH A LUCKY GAL!!
Good morning all!! Let me say right up front that this is a longish post, so please bear with me!! As you can see, I have added to the blog candy everyday - you have the stamps, the rub-ons, the stickles, and today you have four cards with matching envelopes to decorate as you want!! Tomorrow I will add the final item and Saturday I will announce the winner - whoohoo! So, today I want to share with you why I feel I am so very lucky. I have received some wonderful mail over the last few days and want to share with you what I got. First, I got this wonderful Riley card from Tracy at Tracy's Happy Place - isn't it just so stinkin' cute???!!! AND she sent me these images and some of those cool dewdrops I have seeing but have never gotten to have! Thank Tracy - I love them!! Then, I received this beautiful monogrammed card from Angie at Chic n' Scratch, I totally love this!!! The picture does not do it justice, it is very classy-looking and I can't wait to use it!! Big hugs to you girl, thanks for thinking of me!! Then, I received this absolutely gorgeous card from my good friend Melissa at Simply Pink. Look at those beautiful browns, and the yummy ribbon, this card is sooo very rich and warm, it put a smile on my face the second I opened the envelope! Melissa is a sweetheart and she and I have become really good bloggin' buddies. I really hope to meet her in person sometime in the very near future....your card is beautiful, girl, I totally love it!!! Last, but by no means least are some die cuts my BFF Vicki made for me using her new toy - I think it's a Silhouette, but I won't swear to it, I only know it is not a Cricut! She is so very thoughtful and generous, she is always thinking of me!! She knew I was looking to do some pages for my oldest son and the new puppy and so she made some die cuts to help me along!! I love ya Vicki!! She doesn't have a blog (yet) but she needs to as she is phenomenally talented and she needs to share her talent with all of us!! So, don't you agree that I am a very lucky gal??!! All of these women are hugely talented, very sweet, and do awesome work so check them out!!! Smooches to all of you gals, you totally made my day!!
