It's Not All Black and White

Share the Wealth Blog Candy

(Hopefully this will stay at the top until Sunday, so you'll have to scroll down for newer posts.)

I passed 30,000 hits on this l'il ole blog! Can you believe it? It gives me the warm fuzzies.

AND, I am so stoked about my design team gig with Verve Visual. <---That's the Design Team page. Julee will be having the grand opening on August 1st. I can't wait to see my stuff on a real manufacturer's site. WooHoo!

AND, I made my own blog banner! It's the first thing I've made with my Photoshop Elements 5.0. I used a free kit from Shabby Princess called Sun Porch by Amy Teets and a font called Bleeding Cowboys downloaded from Scrapbook Village. I'm sure it's not much to most of you, but I'm just thrilled with my little creation.
ETA: Well, it seems my blog banner could be considered in violation of Shabby Princess's terms of service. Figured my first Photoshop experience was just going too smoothly. I do thank the person who kindly pointed it out though. So, I'm back to one Amy Westerman made for me when I started my blog, which is quite purdee.

AND, I just love y'all! Thanks so much for stopping by.

So, here it is. I'm sharin' the wealth of a recent online shopping excursion. Up for grabs is:
*12 sheets (6x6) Making Memories Boho Chic embellishment paper (two each of six designs)
*1 package Basic Grey [un]dressed chipboard mini monograms
*1/2 package (approximately) Quick Pick Hydrangea Strawberry Primas
*1/2 package (approximately) Carribean Collections St. Martin Primas
*4 Heidi Swapp ghost shapes flowers
*1 Studio G clear stamp set

U.S. and Canada only please, due to shipping costs. So sorry. Only one comment per person. Thanks!

Just leave me any comment you'd like. If you prefer a topic for discussion (as I do on blog candy posts), let me know if you scrapbook. Hands-on or digital, or a bit of both? What do you scrap? Any scrapping info you feel like sharing is fine by me. I'll do the online random number choosing thing on Sunday night and post the winner by Monday.

ikkinlala said...

Congrats on all the hits!

I'm more a card maker than a scrapbooker - I like the books to be about the photos, so I don't tend to embellish very much.

Robyn said...

Congrats on the number of visits. I have been a scrapbooker for years and only ventured into stamping a few years ago. I do three books for every year, one for my family album and one for each of my children. Oh, and I do it the old fashioned way, I haven't really tried digital yet.

Summer said...

I do LOTS of scrapbooking. I am one of those people who scrapbooks every single picture! It's an obsession...
Congrats on the hits! I adore your blog.

Lilian said...

Congrats on passing 30k!! i know that i have added atleast 10k of those... i love your blog! :)

i'm a beginner... so i am sticking to cards for now. but i would like to start altering other items too.

thanks for offering the blog candy!

Rita said...

Congrats on 30K hits! I luv to come visit your blog, your cards are amazing!!! I just started with card making & stamping, & I gotta say I luv it. I do the scrapbooking thing & use Creative Memories products, which I luv. I've recently done 2 shutterfly digital books & luv that also, it's great. Thank you so much for putting up this wonderful blog candy, I hope I win!!! Thanks again.

Rita

Allison said...

Yummy blog candy and congrats on the hits! I think you are one of the better "carders" out there (as my DS would say)...

Lisa Cox said...

Hi I do scrapbook. I actually got into stamping thru scrapbooking. I have been doing it for over 3 years. I love stamping as well. I do mostly 12 x 12's but I have just got into the 8 x 8's. You have a great blog.:) Congrats on the job with Julee. I look forward to the new products:)
Talk to you soon!

Wonderful blog goodies! Your blog is so nice! Thank you for the chance to win you blog candy!

apigonfire said...

congratulations!!! On EVERYTHING!!! I swear, you're having the best week ever! :)
I can't wait for the 1st!
I'm a card maker! :) But, maybe when I have kids, that will change!

Kristine said...

Congrats on the hits! I scrapbook, hands on, but I do want to try digital eventually. I have a son and a daughter, so that is what I scrap, all their events in life.

Erica Payne said...

I do scrapbook, but not the digital kind. I think that takes the fun out of it. JMO. I scrap for my 3 sons. They each have the number of albums per their age: 8,5,2. I've fallen a little behind so my goal for the next few weeks is 5 layouts per week. I'll be posting one each day. YOu do great work BTW.

Flossie's Follies said...

Congratulations. I do scarpbook some, do a book a year for my niece.

Mimi Hornberger said...

Great job! I love your blog and am happy when you are on my google reader in the morning!
I have been scrapbooking for 10 years and stamping for 5. I recently took a job teaching scrapbooking at Michaels.
I hope to reach 30,00 someday! Maybe even more! LOL! Keep up the great work!

CAKVD said...

Awesome banner! I scrapbook...only paper though. No digi for me yet. My themes include vacations and my daughter. But can you believe that I'm actually running out of photos to scrap? So now I'm doing lots of misc. layouts...my friends, family, college, high school. Thanks!

Márcia Mattos said...

Hi

I do both, love cardmaking but also love scrapbooking.
I would love if you visit my blog www.marciamattos.blogspot.com
And if I win the blog candy you can send the gift to my relative's in NY.
Hugs
Marcia

jodene said...

Congrats on the hits. Easy to see why. I both scrap and card making. I actually scrap every picture I take. I just recently started to add my card making supplies into my scrapbooking.(stamps, ribbon, brads ect.) Before I just used CM short cuts and stickers. I must say it is way more fun now. Thanks for the chance to win your blog candy!

Amy said...

I've never scrapbooked for myself. On occasion I've made small scrapbooks as gifts for friends. I've never had much interest in going digital, though. I spend too much time on the computer at work; the last thing I want to do for a hobby is stare at the computer screen even more.

Congrats on hitting 30K!

Connie Conlon said...

Congratulations, how exciting. I have just done hands on scrapbooking. I like to be able to touch and move everything before making a final decision. Sometimes it goes together easy and sometimes it takes awhile to be happy with a page.

Peggy Maier said...

I used to scrapbook, but being too much of a perfectionist it wasn't much fun. I'm into cardmaking now & I think I found my niche!

Melissa said...

Congrats on the hits!

I'm a hands-on kind of scrapper and don't make time to do it nearly often enough!

stampinat6213 said...

Thank you for the opportunity to win you awesome blog candy! I am a scrapbooker from way back, but since I've discovered cardmaking, the scrapbooking has taken a back seat. I have great intentions, and keep my photos organized for future scrapbooking sessions. I have talked to alot of people about digital scrapbooking and find it quite interesting.

Kathy W said...

Congrats on all your blog hits! I am trying to get back into scrapbooking--hands on (maybe someday digital but I'm pretty kinesthetic so I like manipulating paper, photos, embellies, etc. by touch). Right now I'm retrieving photos from old, harmful albums and cataloging them for future scrapping. Feels good to get this process rolling. Thanks for the chance to win such generous blog candy.

ejones said...

I love scrapbooking...I recently finished an album from a trip my daughters and I took with their high school band to California. We went to Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood Blvd and Huntington Beach. The trip was only 4 days, but we ended up with 65 pages in our scrapbook from our trip.

Linda SS said...

I generally make cards, but have dabbled in scrapbook pages and would love to get good enough to scrap an album for my little grandkids:) I'm a computer dunce & still haven't figured out how to create a blog, much less digital scrap. So my scrapbook will be by hand.

rebecca said...

Great job on your blog. No wonder you've surpassed 30K. I've always had a passion for paper arts, but am relatively new to stamping. Haven't done the scrapping yet. I'd love to hear more about your experiences with PhotoShop. I'm teaching myself and sure have fun erasing people! I can be reached at ceadmile00@msn.com. Thanks for the chance to play.

Laura W said...

I admire scrappers, but I don't have the zest. I love making cards, so that has become my "thing." :)

Thanks!

Jan Scholl said...

I am just making a mess in my kitchen some days-and its not cooking but paper crafting. even get glitter on my dog. I want to make a banner but I think its too complicated.

Cathy said...

Congrats on your hits. Great job on your banner. Count me in on this sweet yummy candy. I am more of a card maker, but love scrapbooking and alter items. My scrapbooking is usually gifts, so I do mine with generic pages. Great blog and thanks for a chance.

Suzy said...

Hi
I am still new to the paper crafting world and just make cards for now. I want to get into scrapbooking and I would do photos not the digi stuff but I am afraid it would send me to the poorhouse if I need to start buying new stuff for scrapbooking!

Vera Matson said...

Congrats on the successful blog! Thanks for such a great blog candy offering!

lorrietori said...

I love your blog! Congrats on the hits! And your banner looks great, too!

I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years, but find myself with little time to really sit down and work. I'm really behind!

Thanks for the chance at the wonderful blog candy!

Kerry J. said...

30,000 hits - Wow! Congrats to you, every hit is well deserved! I started out scrapbooking and moved to cardmaking when I was stressed out about getting too far behind in scrapbooking. I know I'll get back to it eventually but for now I like the instant gratification of cardmaking. Great banner btw, I can't quite figure that part out, especially how to scale down the papers for a banner.

Holly said...

Congrats on all of the hits!!! Your blog is fabulous and I love your new banner, super cool, that font is awesome! I am a scrapbooker turned stamper and love to stamp in my scrapbooks as well. Currently trying to get some scrappin' done and organized, YIKES!!! So many pictures so little time.

Jen said...

Wow congrats on the visitors. That's great. I also really like your banner, and am so jealous. I have been trying to get into digi-scrapping and just don't seem to have the patience or the know how to figure out Photoshop elements 5. Grrrrrr Hopefully some day it will all come together!

stampingbeth said...

you have such a great blog... you are very talented! congrats on your success!
Beth

Kacey Elliott said...

Congrats on the hits - 30K is fabulous! You are loved! As for scrapbooking, I did before my second child was born but haven't in two years. But after this weekend, I went to a scrap convention, I am setting a goal for myself - at least 4 pages a week. I like to do the hands on kind, not digital, although it might be cheaper :-) P.S. can't wait to see everyone's work on Verve!

donna calamari said...

Love your work. So glad you have a blog. I do not scrap but would love to try it.

greetingsbydebra said...

I do a *little* scrapbooking, but am determined to do more. I have this fear of doing it wrong. I realize that's a bit silly. :)

jmniffer said...

Congrats on the blog hits, you do such a wonderful job sharing your creative talents with us. I don't scrapbook, I always forget to take pictures. Instead I made cards and papercrafting items. Thanks for the chance at the great blog candy. Jenny

Denise said...

congrats! Your blog is beautiful!

Julieg said...

I used to scrapbook but I'm now into making cards, journals, anything that can be altered. Thanks for a chance to win.

mara g said...

Congrats on 30K hits!
I love to come visit your blog, your cards are amazing!!! Thank you sharing your talent's with us.

Tim and Shawnie said...

I am one who loves to create my work with my own two "Inked Up" hands. LOL. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

Michelle said...

WOW! A big CONGRATS to you on 30,000 hits! What a milestone!

I used to scrapbook, but now focus only on my cardmaking and paper crafting projects. I can only wish there was time for it all! In my next life? Maybe?

Regina D. said...

Congratulations on hitting that number. You've got a great blog, so I'm not surprised.

Yes, I also scrapbook - although it's mostly vacations. Some day I'll take a week or two worth of vacation from my "day job" and scrapbook all of my old pictures.

scfranson said...

Congratulations ! You have a wonderful blog.
Claudia

Rachel said...

Congrats on the blog visits and the DT gig! Great job on the banner. I'm 100% a paper scrapper. Thanks for the chance at the awesome blog candy!

scfranson said...

You have a wonderful blog. Congratulations.
Claudia

Heather said...

Congrats! I am a cardmarker and stamper. I've been married nearly 14 years and my wedding photos aren't even in the wedding album I bought from the photographer!

Susan Liles (susiestampalot) said...

hi bethany! i love your blog and i just discovered it! i started this whole mess of papercrafting in the scrapbooking world! even used to sell creative memories! i still love it, in fact, i just got back from a 4 day scrapbooking retreat at a little haven out in east texas--pure joy and i got 67 pages done! i did dabble in some digital stuff i was experimenting with for michaels a few weeks ago and wish my computer had more space on it to really play and not get frustrated with how slow it was! ugh! if only i had a laptop....:)

Tracy said...

Hi Bethany, I have always loved your cards on SCS and I just found your blog :) If it's okay I'd like to add you to my blogroll so I can see what you've been up to :)

janet allen said...

I have been scrapbooking for several years and only recently started making cards. My daughter just graduated from high school and I have scrapbooks of her from baby to adulthood. Over the years, the supplies have gotten better and better so I've been going back & redoing some of them.

Momsnack said...

I love making cards and all sorts of papercrafting - sadly my scrapbooking is way behind!
Congratulations.
Nancy S

Selina said...

Congrats on your hits!

I am a card maker, but I do love scrapbooking, as time permits. I am a hands-on gal though, I haven't done any digital scrapbooking yet.

Sharon in NE said...

I can't wait for Verve Visual to be up and running. Julee is so gifted and the design team are all so talented. This will be something to see! Congratulations to you and all of your well earned success!

#1volunteer said...

I love to scrapbook but cards will always be my first love. I am waaaay behind on my scrapbooking. When my daughter goes back to school, I have vowed to do two pages a day until I'm caught up.

Hulda said...

wow, 30.000 hits! that's awesome, I hope I'll get to that point some day ;)
I do both scrapbooking and cardmaking, I'm working an a "Book of Me" and my son is my favorite supermodel ;)
you've got a great blog!!!

Well Said Cards said...

Congrats on the milestone! That's some amazing blog candy. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see the Verve Visual reveal! Congrats on being on that design team. You certainly deserve it.

Shannan said...

Shut up!! What awesome blog candy, but even better...I'm lovin the blog banner. Gotta figure that out one of these days. I can't wait to see the site either!! Hopefully we can sleep tonight...

Tara said...

love your blog...the candy looks yummy!! :)
yep...i am a scrapper...I was a scrapper before the stamping bug bit me. I scrap mostly my kids albums. I haven't tried digital...just the albums! ...it's my therapy time! :)

chelemom said...

WOW! I will probably be 95 by the time I get that many hits! Congrats! I do scrapbook...my kids, hubby, grandma, that sort of thing....cards are really secondary! Although I really do enjoy making them!

melissa f said...

Great blog. I am a card person. Can not seem to get motivated to make one page.

Beth said...

Okay- the first thought I had when I clicked on your blog was "Awesome new title banner, wonder where she had it done?" Imagine how impressed I was when I saw you did it your self! Great job! Scrapbook is my first passion and I am so much a hands on gal. I have dabbled a bit digitally but only enough to frustrate myself. I do intend to give it a little more time. Thanks for this awesome opportunity for blog candy. Your blog is super!

Kristine Reynolds said...

I noticed your new banner right away...really cute! Congrats on Verve-can't wait to see your creations!

shelley- aka hairchick said...

Congrats! Love your blog! I recently started digiscrapping with PSE5, and also made my own blog blanner! I was so proud! Yours is beautiful and I also love shabby princess!

tanja said...

I've only done one scrapbook page, ever, but I did like the way it turned out. I think my problem is where to store scrapbooks. Congrats and as always - TFS. I love your work!

melissa roth said...

Cards only for me - sure wish they were as great as your cards though! I'm a working mother who doesn't have much free time, so unfortunately I don't have the time to take up scrapbooking.

Colleen, PA said...

I'm in PA too...we live in Reading. I love your blog and am so happy that it has become so popular. I love anything relating to cards, as that is what I spend 99% of my crafting time creating. I'm going on vacation...happy me :) Have a great weekend!

Mandy said...

I've never tried the digital scrappin, I love to get my hands on all that fun ribbon and primas! Ahh it's like a good piece of chocolate!

Lauren (mytime) said...

I hate scrapbooking! Whcih is a shmae cause I ahve 3 kids ;C
I love your banner. Isnt it great to be able to do it YOURSELF!

Congrats on the DT too! Love their little set.
Im holding out till there are a few more to place an order!

Mary Campbell said...

I am kind of new to stamping and scrapbooking. I am trying my hand at my first scrapbook. My first grandchild was just born and I want to make one about him. Congrats on the big number of hits to your blog. I love to visit.

k.m. said...

Congratulations on reaching the 30k mark....Way to go!!
I do scrapbooking too....just the regular "hands on" style. I have 6 grandchildren....so it is a "work in progress" for each of them.

Carol said...

You have a beautiful blog and wonderful artwork. I can understand your feelings about creating your own banner. I love to us PSE and create things.
I am both a cardmaker and scrapper. Just started doing a little digital scrapping. Rather fun, but still likes my hands on pages too. Would love to win some candy!

michaela said...

Congrats on all those hits - your blog is great & the hits are reflecting that. I am mainly into scrapbooking but love it all.

Paula M. said...

Congrats on the hits :) I scrapbook some but I love making cards more.

Julie Masse said...

Love your blog Bethany - congrats on the design team and you did great with the banner!! Thanks for sharing! :)

istamp31 said...

Just found your blog and I'll be back. I'm mainly a card artist...and a beginner scrapper...so nothing fancy for me.
Congrats on so many hits....your blog looks great!

Daniela said...

Wow, awesome blog candy. Congrats on your DT, banner and 30,000 posts!!!

Lastel/STAMPINSTEL said...

I think your banner is great , it is so cool that you created it yourself ! I am just a card maker for now , have not made any pages yet , but want to someday , I think I need to take a class to get me jump started .

Jennifer Magreevy said...

Wow, congrats on 30,000! I think your new banner is purdee...and there's no way I could have done it, so pat yourself on the back!! :-) I scrapbook by hand, I'm soooo not into the digital scrapbook stuff yet. I like to feel the finished product in my hands. :-)

Anonymous said...

Way to go making your own blog banner! Very cute! and I love the name of your blog. Card gallery card for Verve! Love that Pink Martini paper! Thanks for sharing what you do! Lisa K

jpmayo said...

1st of all congrats on 30,000 posts!! Wow!
Nope I dont scrapbook but if you started showing it a lot on your blog I bet I would:) I have been a huge fan all along and I am happy for your success!

Suzy (Doan) Tyler said...

I'm just getting into Scrapbooking. It's a little intimdidating at times.

Congraduations on all your hits!

Great site!

Shannon K said...

Congrats on all your hits!! Your stuff is great.
I don't scrapbook, I mainly make cards and alter items. Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!

Meli Mitchell said...

Congrats on your hits! Your blog is really fresh and fun to look at, I truly enjoy it.

Char in So Cal said...

First, let me say how much I enjoy your blog! I like to visit once a day or so in hopes of finding more wonderful samples.

I started out scrapbooking but once I tried stamping I put 110% into it. I keep saying I need to get my scrapbooks out again but we all know how THAT goes.......

Keep up the great blogging!!

Heather Leech said...

Congrats on the popularity of your blog!! I get regular updates through Google Reader and love your creations!
I'm more of a card maker than a scrapper. I know I should get scrapping, but I have so little extra time as it is...someday soon! Thanks for a chance at an amazing bunch of goodies!!

kelly said...

Great blog. I love all of your work.
I scrapbook, the hands on kind. I mostly scrap my 1 year old son.

AJ said...

congrats on the dt gig! That's gotta be so fabulous!! Her store is awesome! Love your new banner too!

Alli Miles said...

Wohoo for your daily visits! That is quite a milestone. Congrats too on working with Julee. I think she picked an awesome team too (you gals are all my favs!). I look forward to seeing the things you are going to produce with her stamps.
As for scrapbooking, it's been a while. Scrapbooking is actually what got me into card making *lol*. Every once in a while I try and complete a hands on page. As much as I like speediness of digital I just need to play with the products in my hands!

sylv s. said...

WOW, 30,000 hits! You go girl!

I have just recently got into card making and I absolutely love it! I started out paper scrapbooking and now I'm hooked on digi.

Your blog candy rocks!

joslyn said...

congrats! great blog. i love to hands on scrapbook but because of time i usually make cards.

great blog candy!

Cris said...

That's alot of hits, but I can see why, I really enjoy your blog, like so many others. I too am a card maker, even though I say someday I'll start scrapbooking. It's like making cards only bigger!

Aunt T said...

Great blog banner (and great blog btw)! I do scrap a little. I prefer digital scrapbooking as I can work on my projects in the family room while my family cheers on the Red Sox or Detroit Red Wings and I have little mess to clean up when I am done!

Teresa

Peggy S. said...

Congratulations on 30K! I do scrapbook, but not digital, and make cards. I have done several wedding and baby scrapbooks for gifts, but mostly I scrapbook for my children(ages 26 and 24). Haven't been able to do much lately, due to caring for elderly parents, but looking forward to the time I can, again. I enjoy your blog - keep it up! Great blog candy - hope I'm lucky!

Jill said...

Love your blog. I like scrapbooking but don't do as much as I feel I should. I'm so behind I feel a little overwhelmed at times but I really like the idea of digital scrapping and have tried it a little bit.

Anonymous said...

Hi! Love your banner, you did a great job. Congrats on your number of viewers, I can understand why. I was drawn to your blog by a card you sent to another blogger. Thank you for sharing your talents.

I am a stamper, card maker, and scrapbooker. I am actually just making my first album. I have done pages for a pre-made album, but this is a small album made of CD holders.

Thanks again!

rau1jm said...

I love looking at your blog. You make fantastic cards. I'm a scrapper and I make cards. I have on-gong scrapbooks for both of my children, for 4 different Godchildren, and whatever special occasion that comes along. Congrats on all of your hits.

Kelly Albright (BrightIdeas on SCS) said...

I love your cards. I'm checking out blogs today, I plan to start my own soon, my goal is to launch on/by my birthday, August 20th.

Meg said...

Congrats on the hits....your blog banner turned out quite nice. I have been a hands on scrapper for a few years now, but started stamping many years ago. I enjoy being able to mix the two and coming up with some interesting combos. Once again, Congrats!

Dottie K said...

Congrats! Love the blog banner althought I just found your site thanks to Rose Ann. Love your work! Now in my favorites!! I'm a scrapbooker and cardmaker. I scrapbook both my niece and newphew. Couldn't do one sibling without the other. I love paper - so no digital here. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. :)

Beth said...

awesome new banner Bethany!

I love the digital look - but just be careful - some of those free downloads prohibit your using them for things like blog banners and website banners - read the fine print on their downloads.

I would be happy to show you how to create that same paper using your own digital software. It is super easy and UBERKEWL!

Congrats on the Verve thing - I was peekin at their website on the 1st. HOT SCHTUFF BABY!

Nikki said...

Congrats on your numbers and on being design team member!!! I love your creations. TFS!!!

Gabrielle said...

Whenever I spot primas, I can't pass up a chance to win blog candy! Card only for me. I'm trying to get good enough where I'll eventually get into scrapbooking once I start having kids. I sure do like your cards.

Tautchia said...

Hi! Yep, I scrapbook. Mostly paper. Just beginning to learn the digi bit.

Such a shame that you had to take you blog banner down. Stinky. Funny they won't let you use the kigi kit for your banner as long as proper credit is given. Seems it would send more people to their site who might buy kits. JMHO.

Congrats on the huge number of hits on your blog!

Karen said...

I love to scrapbook. I do several albums a year for hire and am starting to incorporate my stamping in to the scrapbooks.

Mercy said...

kudos on your blog hits! i know how much it means to have loyal readers who love and appreciate what you do. one thing is for sure...we love and appreciate you!! thanks for sharing your success with us all!

Anonymous said...

I just discovered your blog and added it to my favorites list. I am a scrapbook collector...in other words, I have lots of supplies I jsut haven't found the time to start scrappin' yet. Congrats on your numbers and good luck with your blog and scrapbooking. THanks for letting me sign up for your blog candy!

Darryla said...

Oooh - I like everything about this blog including your banner. I especially like the style of your cards. At the moment, the only thing I work on is card crafting.

Alex said...

Okay I am going to play and if I am lucky enough to win, you can post it to my friend Dana and she will post it on for me!! lol

I am very much a cardmaker, but have dabbled in scrapbooking, got loads of new scrapbooks waiting for me, I have made the grand total of two pages!!!! wahoee

starqueen said...

Hi Bethany
Congratulations on the hits. I luv your blog! I am a rubber stamper/card maker. I have dabbled in scrapbooking, maybe when I get better at photography I'll be drawn to do more.

Thanks for the opportunity to win some very nice candy!

Jan Scholl said...

I am more a card maker/stamper but need to make an album for my son's recent wedding. I have all the papers, trims, ladidahs----but still waiting on the photos months later. Son will not get any inheritance if I get no photos.

Cheryl said...

Hope I'm not too late. I'm more of a cardmaker than a scrapbooker. About the only thing I scrapbook is recipes and I only do that if I am in a swap.

Barb T said...

Congrats on hitting those numbers.
I subscribe to your blog and read it every day. You do such beautiful work. A lot of inspiration here for me. Barb

Vianna said...

Congatulations!
I'm likely late to be entered in the drawing, even though I do stop by pretty regularly.
Thanks for everything you do.
Warm wishes and ocean breezes from

Mistylynn said...

I have scrapped for"ever". I love stamping and how it adds that little extra to my stuff. I now sell my cards in a boutique. Have a great day.
Misty

Stamp4hobby said...

Honestly? I really struggle with scrapbooking. I love it but I struggle with putting pictures and paper together. I always wonder if a better paper will come out that will match my pics perfectly. Silly I know... My goal this year is to get at least a couple of pages done for each of my kids because I know how much they will enjoy looking through it.

Cathy Whiteman said...

This is the first time I've visited your blog. It was your "fall florals" card posted on SCS that brought me here. Great blog!

Bonny said...

I am new to your site but look forward to helping add more hits for you. :) Congrats on the milestone. I am having fun looking around.
I like to make cards but I do adapt other items as well. I have recently started playing with rub-ons with candles and coffee mugs.
Thanks so much for the chance at those beautiful freebies.
