Thank YOU!


I have been feeling very thankful lately! I am blessed by my family and friends both near and far and even the friendships I have made through this little hobby of mine! Recently, I was asked to join the Dirty Dozen at Splitcoaststampers.com and it's like a little dream of mine came true. I never thought I was even on the radar for something like that, but I am thrilled beyond words!  

I had also applied for a design team position, and although I wasn't chosen, I received a huge compliment from one of their designers that really made me feel special! Maybe one day I'll get there! I also received some very sweet comments on my SCS announcement from some of my paper crafting idols...and I am very thankful for all the encouraging and warm thoughts being sent my way!

So, this card is for you! It's also for one of my favorite challenges, Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge where this past week was blue and green themed! I used the Lily of the Valley image from the Botanical Bookplates Vol. 2 set and colored it with Copics, cut it out using some Spellbinders dies and added my sentiment from the same set. Underneath, is a dp with the theme colors, an embossed panel along the bottom and it's all tied together with a bright, white ribbon and bow topped with a pearl brad. I added a few leaf sprigs cut with TE die and a couple of pearls to accent my sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by and look for my post later this week about my Blogaversary Giveaway...it's been 3 years already!
