You Mean the World to Me!!!


Hello everyone....how is your holiday weekend going so far??? Just think...most of you won't have to get up in the morning...you can sleep till noon and play in your craft space all day...Whoohoo!!!! That's what I would like to do but I have got to clean my dirty house first!!! Anyway....a strange thing happened to my blog this weekend. Blogger sent me an email stating that I had lots of activity on my blog so they needed to verify me by asking me to send them my phone number. At first I thought it was a hoax so I kinda ignored it....well, guess what...they deleted my blog!!!!!! Yikes!!!!!! I wasn't on the computer for a couple of days so I didn't realize it was gone till today!! I found the email, sent them my phone number and they fixed it after they gave me a code to submit. How weird is that??????? Has this happened to any of you??? Oh well, it's all better now!!!

I did have a chance to play a little today....the super sweet and oh, sooo talented Ellen Taylor sent me this beautiful JustRite stamp set called Kindness for my birthday (which was in May) and I wanted to make a special card just for her....it's a little late, Ellen, but ya know I love ya, Sistah!!!!!!
An embossing folder by Life Style Crafts was used in the background and lots of tiny pearls were added. A Spellbinders leaf die was used for the leaves and the flowers, twine, and the stick pin finish it off.

This is for a few challenges:
1. The Ribbon Girl Blog - pearls
2. Stampin for the Weekend - pearls and swirls
3. Dream Valley Challenge - something old (the flowers) and something new (the embossing folder)
4. Great Impressions - sentimental journey
5. No Matter Which Challenges - die cuts and/or punches

Thanks for stopping by...enjoy the rest of your Labor Day weekend!!!!
