WHOOOOOHOOOO!! 100K HITS AND A NEW CARD!!!


Hi all!!! Whooohooo!! I am BACK and even have a card to share today!! And, I was checking out my counter and saw that I just went over 100, 000 hits - that is sooooo AWESOME!! Thanks to all of YOU - that is what makes me keep blogging!! I have met sooo many wonderful people and I have to say, it brightens my day to read all the comments, and visit all of you as well!! At the end of this month I will have been blogging for two years - I cannot believe that!! So, now that I have hit such a GREAT milestone, I will have to decide what fun blog candy to have in celebration - I will put my thinking cap on and figure it out and let you all know by Friday *wink* But, for now, I do have a card to share - it's a simple card but I love how it turned out! It's using one of my fave sets called Cheep Talk - I just love the birdies, they are sooo cute!! And, I have to say, I am not a huge fan of purple but I do love the different shades here with that gorgeous designer series paper called Cottage Wall - it's just so soft and pretty, it makes me smile!! This is one of the cards I did for a workshop recently and they really enjoyed making this one too!! I hope to be back to stamping regularly again now that I am feeling more like myself - I tell ya, that virus is really something - I am still recovering and have not been able to shake the cough and congestion that goes along with it. But, at least I am able to get back into a routine, which makes me happy!! I am off to blog hop a little before I hit the office, and I will be back tomorrow to share another fun project!! I hope you all have a FABULOUS day!!!

Card Recipe:
Paper - Old Olive, Pale Plum, Lavender Lace, Whisper White card stock, Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper
Inks - Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant classic inks
Stamps - Cheep Talk
Accessories - White gel pen, 3/4 and 1/2 inch circle punches, large and small oval punches, Elegant Eggplant narrow grosgrain ribbon

Alex, I am so glad to see you are alive and well. I was concerned after your last post and not seeing anything from you!

The card is lovely. I don't have that set, but I'm thinking it is pretty cute and has potential for lots of fun cards.

Wooohoo - soo glad you're feeling better, and wow - what a milestone to reach 100,000!!! Loved your card too - I am in love with the Cottage Wall papers, and it is fun using colors that I haven't used since I started stamping years ago - Pale Plum and Perfect Plum were old favorites then - so it is fun to use them again huh!
