Your Kindness IS Appreciated!

Happy 1 year Blog-aversary to ME! 

Happy Thursday to one and all! Today is my 1 year blog-aversary, and it has been a fun year that has just flown by. It doesn't seem like it has been a whole year since I started my blog, back on May 9. 2012.

I hope the next year will bring New projects, New ideas, and New friends together sharing the Paper Arts that we all love so much.

Today's card is to thank you all that have visited my blog and commented on it over the past year. Your kind words ARE very much appreciated, and I hope you will continue to visit in the years ahead.
I started with a white stock card base, and added a bright pink background. On this background I sewed a strip of polka dot paper across the top, and a cute striped pocket below it.  I also stamped the Pure Innocence Hula Girl from My Favorite Things on white stock and colored her with my Copic Markers.  After fussy cutting her out, I used foam tape to pop her up next to the stripey pocket.  Onto the pocket I added a circle punched from printed paper with a tiny pink brad, and stamped the word "Thanks" on it. To complete the card, I printed the phrase on white stock, cut it to fit in the pocket, and then rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper and placed it in the pocket.

A very simple, and nice card to remind those you love they are appreciated. Before I close for today, I want to remind you that there are still a few more days left for you to leave a comment on my blog and be registered to win the prize package- blogaversary give away mentioned in the right margin of this blog. I have collected a lot of fun products I want to share with you, and all you have to do is leave a little bloggie love to be eligible for the drawing on Sunday, May 12.  I will announce the winner on my post next week, so get busy typing, and let me know what is on your mind and if you have any questions on any technique you have seen on my blog.

Until I see you again, "Happy Stampin', and journaling!"
