Celebrating With A Blog Give Away!

Today is a little more special for me and I'd like to take this opportunity to show my appreciation to many of my blog friends and followers. As I walk memory lane, it was my original long term plan, when I started my blog, to eventually host a blog give away at a later point in time. Another year has come and gone with my blog and I want to show my appreciation  with you and share a little blog candy. I believe the time has arrived.....

It's been incredibly fun making new friends through blog land. Each of you have been a constant source of joy to me and inspiration to continue on blogging with your lovely comments and personal emails. It's always appreciated and inspires me to continue my blog!

I hope that you will join in for the fun? No crazy rules on this give a way or hoops to jump through. If you would like to share my give away picture here and link into your side bar, please do! I would be delighted but, not necessary!  Just be sure to tell all you stamping friends to join in for some fun. 

I hope you like what you see here and join my blog as a follower, only.... if you wish? I always love new followers and new blog friendships. I've always disliked blog give a way's when you’re forced to join their blog to receive their prize. I only hope you enjoy my blog and come back time and time again for inspiration and leave me more of your sweet comments?

Rules for this little give away....I only ask that you leave me a comment on this post telling me a little about yourself and how you found me and if there may have been a favorite card of mine that you have particularly enjoyed.

By midnight Friday. July 11th.  I will pick a winner. On Monday, July 14th I will announce the winner!

The winner MUST contact me within 24 hours (go to my right sidebar to my email address there that reads... CONTACT ME) while emailing me with your home address so that I can send you your blog goodies. If the winner does not respond after 24 hrs. Then I will pick another winner.

 So stay tuned and Good Luck my friends!

Daisy Daisy Do....

A cherry hello to each of you who took time to stop by today.  Hope this little one is something that you'll enjoy stopping in for another little peek this week?  I used my favorite die cut from  Marianne Design Creatable's LR0200 (Corner) and decided to place each corners cut into the center of the card for a more eye catching look on this card.
I also used my daisy punch and made a few more daisy's again for two corners to help make this card feel feminine?  
The background papers I used to frame out this card are of turquoise and green  and seem to compliment each other quite nicely. I then made pink and yellow daisy's for a colorful combination of flowers. 
It seems to me that a butterfly almost always adds a soft look to any card and you can never go wrong with adding it somewhere onto your creation.  Perhaps I should have added a few pearls onto the butterfly but completely forgot it until I say my picture here.

Real Hydrangeas At Home....

No crafting card to share with you at this moment.  I just wanted to quickly share something with you.  Hydrangeas are truly one of my most favorite flowers.  These are real dried hydrangeas on top of my wall unit.

My sweet girlfriend Carol gave them to me when recently visiting with her.  She loves to garden and she had them hanging in her garage and insisted I take the home with me knowing my love and desire for them.  Not being a Gardner myself I didn't know that they could be dried and saved.  Dah!  So I wanted to put them somewhere in my home that I could enjoy!  So I found this cozy little place for them and will think of Carol each time I look at them.  Thanks so much Carol.

Hang tight everyone because I will soon have another pretty card to share with you. 

 This inspires me to get working on a card made with hydrangea's?  Maybe later?

Sundae Delight...

My sweet daughter who originally introduced  me into stamping had surgery this past week.  So I saw this cute little gift idea on Pinterest and ran away with it.  I couldn't resit.  I thought what a cute little idea for a gift to give her when I see her.  I gave her the white one and attached 3 Mylar Get Well helium balloons and tied them to the neck of the glass.  I thought it made a cheery presentation for her for after her surgery.  It truly did put a smile on her face when giving it to her. 
I added the cute little circle flowers that read...happy thoughts to the straw and attached a daisy flower and a cute pearl to the center.  I then hot glued the bath scrubby around the glass rim and hot glued a red pom pom for the cherry on top!  I used a small cello bag and filled it with bath salts which is hard to see in the picture. 
The verse and tag is the cutest.  I copied the verse that someone graciously handed out on the internet and generated it on my computer and cut it into a tag that I was able to download on the internet.  
The Verse Reads:

This very special sundae,
will leave you feeling great.
It's chock full of good things
even though it can't be ate.
Take it to the bath with you.
Of Course don't take a sip,
cause it may look delicious, 
but it's made to take a dip!
My daughter is on the mend now and is healing quite well so mom can once again return to home after spending time helping her and getting my sweet grandson on and off to school each day.  Only three more days of school for him and then summer fun begins for him.  Yea!

These really do make a cute little gift.  Don't they?
