Happy Birthday Blog!!!

Today my blog is ONE WEEK OLD!  Wow, how can that be possible, LOL!! Thank you to the eight people who have joined me as followers in this great adventure and to all the wonderful people who have left me comments over the last week.  You have lifted my spirits and given me a reason to charge ahead in this new journey in the blogging world. So again thanks to everyone who has touched my heart this week...and now we move on to week two!!

Today I made a card that I just love, and it is a LOVE card!  Unfortunately, the picture does not depict the deep red in the card, however it is a deep and beautiful red.  I made the card with textured paper so it would look elegant, and I embossed the white paper to add that extra bit of texture to make the white part pop.  I love the addition of the rose, which was an embellishment given to me as a Christmas gift by one of my dear friends Debra (love you!). I used my Lacy Labels cricut cartridge to cut out the Love Letters, then placed a piece of black paper behind them so the word Love would stand out. I used a sketch from and just love how simple, can be so beautiful all at the same time.

I would like to thank all the ladies of the design teams who work tirelessly to share their designs with me each week so I can be inspired to create. You each deserve a gem in your crown.

Please check out the following blogs and enter their challenges too, a great group of designers awaits you at each blogspot.

Thank you for coming to my blog, please consider following me, and I would love it if you would leave me a comment. Your comment will brighten my day!
