4 U followers and some great news...


Well, August has been quite a month. I have spent this week purging, selling, trying to get myself in order. Not sure, maybe it is all about my age, but it has been a tough summer emotionally! So this is for you, my loyal followers! First, a little bit about this card. I picked up this Anna Griffin stamp set the other day at Michaels (despite my telling myself "You do not need any more stamps!") because items in the set reminded me of the papertrey look, and make a great background. Plus, it was on sale! Down to $2.97 from 12.99! I made a background using SU! Bermuda Bay and then was stumped. It sat here on my desk for two days.

So I thought about adding a chipboard piece, so I pulled out an SU! Owl, covered it in SU! Bermuda Bay and added some clear glitter. Then, I added the ribbon. Then it sat, on my desk for another day.

So I added the 4U chipboard letters from a stash of letters I found in a drawer. I took this week off hoping to do something creative, but I have been struggling creatively! Anyhoo, that leads me to this...


I am over 500 posts, in the past 18 months, and over 41000 hits so I am going to pick one of my followers / subscribers at random Monday night, the 31st of August to win these three brandy-new stamp sets from Hot off the Press! If you have me in your reader...just leave me a message and I will add you to the mix! I know I have moved away from following, and have just starting subscribing to feeds in my reader, so I do not want to leave anyone out!

That's all! nothing fancy! Just want to say a little thank you to my readers and all those who inspire me to keep up my little hobby! This summer has been especially fulfilling for me with my time on the Angels Landing DT! I have made some great friends!


Last but not least, a HUGE thank you to Judi at Angels Landing who has asked me to stay on the DT for another term! I am shocked....and humbled!!! Be sure to check out her blog today as she announces the fall DT!
