Hello bloggies … and … a special hello to all my new blog subbies!!! (message for you all below!) 😀
I am so glad to be here! 😀 I have been getting withdrawals … because I have hardly been near my computer over the last 3 days! No blogging … no “blurfing” (blog surfing) … no challenges … SIGH! 😦 It is always a little tricky when you have house guests … and with kid b’days happening … we have had a houseful right over the whole weekend. I am surprised to find myself home alone this morning (Mon morn) for the first time in I don’t know how long! 😀 I thought the school holidays would mean it is easier to find time for stamping and blogging … but … although our routines are less structured and more flexible … there does seem to be many more distractions & activities going on! Somehow a mum’s “desires” don’t always come first!!! (Go figure!) Like I didn’t know that after 25 years of mothering! 😉 So … stamping … blogging … and keeping in touch with my blog friends seems to be taking a back seat at the moment!
Anyway … I am here now … with a CUTE CUTE card!
This was a card we were working on at midnight … at a recent stamping day (with Leonie, Jenny & Tracey). I can tell you … by the time midnight had arrived … and I was trying to colour these images in … my eyes were going “cross-eyed”. (You can tell by the standard of the colouring here … not my best samples!) I am definitely NOT a “late night stamper”. Don’t look tooooo closely at the colouring! 😉 Perhaps when I am not so busy during the day … my late hour tolerance will improve??? 😉 But … I still had to share this card with you … because it was soooooooo adorably cute! No … I don’t have this stamp set … but it is definitely on my wish list now! Leonie shared this idea with us … but she found the inspiration on SCS by Joanne Travis. Link for original card. Joanne’s blog. I put a slightly different spin on it … but basically it is as Joanne designed! Isn’t it fun!
I just wanted to take a moment before I go to say hello to all my new blog sub friends! I have been overwhelmed with the number of recent subscriptions to my blog … and each time I open a notification email for new sub … this brings a big smile to my face! 😀 So … I have had lots of happy smiles recently. 😀 I do hope you will all say hi (via a comment) at some point … and I am so thankful for your interest! My blogging adventure has been such an exciting one … and I have met so many special and treasured friends from blogging & I am grateful for the blessings they all bring to my life. So … thanks for subscribing … giving me a thrill … and I do hope you enjoy visiting!
One last thing … I was doing a little happy dance when reading my comments last night. A couple of my bloggies let me know that I had received an “Honourable Mention” for Makeesha’s recent Inkspirations Colour Challenge! How super special! Thanks Keesh (& the girls) for giving me another THRILL! It was very special to receive this award! :d
See you all tomorrow with a fabulously beautiful project – a photo frame + matching card. Hugs xxaxx
