TPE #24; 365Cards Day #148 and a Blogaversary!!


First, the challenges. The challenge at The Pink Elephant this week is "Animals". Well, my card is sporting some birds and a worm (that seems to be in trouble!). The 365 Cards challenge is Super Sketchy Sunday and Pam has given us a rather unique sketch. I tried to stick to it, but I'm afraid I may have veered just a little. (Will you forgive me Pam?). I did turn the sketch and my rolling hills are the rounded portion. All of this card was paper pieced, so it took a while, but I love this image by Pink Petticoat!

Now..........it's my ONE YEAR BLOGAVERSARY!!! It was one year ago today that I started my blog. I can't believe it has already been one year! I have had sooooo much fun with this. I've met so many wonderful, creative and oh so talented people thru this crazy outlet. I've visited tons of other blogs that have been filled with so much inspiration and I've even scraplifted a few (with permission of course!). I have been left the kindest, most generous messages here not only regarding my crafting, but also about me personally AND my family. I've gotten the sweetest comments about my precious Maggie and I thank you for letting me share her with you. So, thank you to all of my blogging friends for always popping in and leaving me encouragement. This day kind of snuck up on me, so I'm not quite ready to offer up some candy. Give me a couple of weeks to come up with some great stuff and we'll have ourselves a party over here!!
Thanks for stopping by today :)

Mushroom house image: Pink Petticoat
