A Dream Come True and a Little Inspiration

Just popped in, not to blow my own horn, but to thank those on the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Team for chosing my card as one of the Top 3 in the last World Challenge.  EB stamps were my first to purchase a little over 2 1/2 years ago when I started making cards and I've always loved her adorable and sweet designs.  This is truly a dream come true! 

I also want to thank all the fantastic designers out there in blogloand for their inspiration and help with different techniques and sharing their amazing designs. Thanks to to my wonderful followers for the ongoing support and comments you leave me. Without your encouragement I'm not sure that I would have continued blogging and creating this long.  You have definately filled a void in my life and given me a reason to continue with a craft I love doing and sharing.  I am so honored and humbled.

For the newbies that stop by to visit or those of you that may be new to blogland, if you love creating please keep pursuing your dreams of designing, learning new techniques and sharing with others. Your rewards will be endless and you may just touch someones heart along the way.

I've been so busy making baby shower invitations and getting my DT cards done for some challenges in August that I haven't posted for awhile but I'll be back real soon with something share.  Catching up tonight on commenting to see what I've missed out on the past few days. Have a wonderful week!
