500 Friends Blog Candy + An Announcement!!!


Hi, all!  I've been noticing my followers number creeping up slowly and steadily and to that I would like to say THANK YOU!!!  To all of you who have followed me for any amount of time--you rock!  You are the reason I keep doing this!  I LOVE your feedback and I strive to be better each day to bring something new to those who even glance my way!

That said, I have a goal for myself.  I would like to reach 500 followers!  I only need about 150 more to get to my goal, but as an incentive, I've got some blog candy I'll be giving away once I reach my goal!!!

Here's the candy~
Candy includes a 6"x 6" paper pad and enamel dots by My Mind's Eye,
the Happy Sentiments stamp set from Inspired By Stamping,
and three colors of baker's twine.
So, want a chance to win this?  Oh, and did I mention I will ship WORLDWIDE?!  That's right, this package of goodies will go to one lucky someone ANYWHERE in the world!

Here's how to gain a chance (or more than one) to win:

1. Follow my blog.
2. Like my blog page on Facebook.
3. Follow me on Twitter.
4. Follow me on Instagram.
5. Follow me on Pinterest.
6. Follow me on YouTube.
7. Follow me on Bloglovin'.
8. Add a picture of the blog candy on your blog linked back to THIS POST.
9. Refer a friend who follows me on any/all of these social outlets. (Each separate friend is ONE extra chance to win.)

For each of these things you do, leave a comment below stating which of these things you do/did.  If you already follow me on all these social media outlets, all you have to do is comment!  When referring friends, add a single comment with the person's name ONE TIME, meaning that you can't add their name each time they follow me on a social media outlet...that's THEIR chance.  You may add an extra comment for each friend that follows me, I just need to know their name so that I can allow your comment to count.  So, basically, you have UNLIMITED chances to win!!!  SCORE!

As an extra incentive...I might add a few more candies when I reach 400, 450, and then you may really have a chance to win one of four prize packages!  So, tell your friends, follow me, and THANK YOU for all of your support! :)

And now, I have a happy announcement to make! :)  I am SO excited to announce that I have been asked to join the wonderfully talented design team for Diane's Daydream Designs!!!  Diane's digis are fabulous and inspiring--you really need to hop over to the store to take a peek!  I feel so grateful to God for this chance to work with digital images again and to work with such amazing women!  I'll be sharing more cards made with these fabulous products each Wednesday from now on, so stay tuned for more!  But for now, here's a little something for your viewing pleasure...

Here's a card featuring one of Diane's sentiments~

I've used a sentiment from the Snowbaby Love Sentiments set at Diane's Daydream Designs, a crocheted heart made by a friend's daughter for me--she made me hearts & flowers, so stay tuned for more of these--, glitter paper by DCWV, a snowflake punch by Martha Stewart, pearls by Studio 120, Stickles by Ranger in Diamond, liquid pearls by Ranger in Silver Pearl, and all papers are by Stampin' Up!.

Doodle Pantry: Furry Friend

Hi, all!  I've got a sweet card for your viewing pleasure today!  This one uses a sweet little critter from one of the newest sets from Doodle Pantry called Spring Critters.

Here's the card~


For these fabulous challenges~

Like I said before, I've used and image from the Spring Critters set, a sentiment from the Carousel Horse 3 set, and papers from the Cute Cake and Oliver Ostrich sets  from Doodle Pantry.  I just LOVE how all of Laurie's images and papers coordinate so nicely! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  I hope you like what you see and that you join in the fun of these fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy crafting to you all!

DDD: Earth Day + Wednesday Wisdom

Hi, friends!  Welcome to another installment of Wednesday Wisdom accompanied with a card made with products from Diane's Daydream Designs.  This time, I've got a (late) card to celebrate Earth Day!  Yeah, I know.  Earth Day was yesterday...I'm sure you can forgive me. ;)

Here's the card~


This sentiment and card remind me of a song that Amy Grant sings (the exact words of the sentiment).  It also reminds me of all the things that we have to be grateful for that God has given us.  This earth is amazing!  All the different foods and animals, all the different terrains, all the different climate, and all the different people.  And even still, we are ALL brothers and sisters.  We are ALL God's children.

And that is something constant that never changes.  Our worth is great to God and He will love us no matter what.  He wants us to return home to Him.  It is up to us to live worthy to do so.  And He knows we can do it!

Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek at my creation!  I hope you take some time to create today!  And don't ever forget--YOU ARE LOVED. :)  HUGS and happy stamping, friends!
