Happy Engagement Anniversary & Blog Candy!!!


Well this is a little late, but nonetheless... I didn't forget!!  :-)  Today is my THIRD Blogoversary!!!  Yep, three years I've had this blog and I admit, I am truly surprised that I'm still here! NOT in life, but blogging!! LOL  I really didn't think that 1) I'd have much to say (well.. maybe a little I did.. LOL).. and 2) had no clue what I'd have to post on a almost daily basis.  But I have and I will continue to.  First... I will share my card with you and then... we'll talk Blog Candy... ok?  :-)

My card base is Gina K's Pure Luxury Lovely Lavender card stock.  I embossed it using the Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder.  I added a layer of Passionate Pink card stock and some of the awesome DP from the Stamp TV Kit, True Love.  My image is from Tami Mayberry's newest set, "Special Occasion Tags".  I stamped it on Ivory and cut it out using the Deckled Rectangles Nesties.  Before removing the Nestie I sponged some Memento Lulu Lavender.  I mounted my sentiment using Pop Dots and added my blow, a charm tied on with some Twine.

Before we talk Blog Candy though... there are a few people I'd like to thank that has really helped me through this last three years of not only blogging but crafting as well.  As I hope you know, I am on the Gina K Designs Design Team.  I have to say my first look into Gina K was thanks to Melanie Muenchinger.  I found Melanie on Splitcoast Stampers and she sent me there to find her stamps.  In doing so, I fell in love with Gina K!!  Thanks, Melanie!  Then... that amazing Gina started Stamp TV and who could resist getting hooked on that???  Gina featured my work as a Center Stage Spotlight member for a month.  From there I was offered a DT position on the Creative Clear Stamps and on InStyle Stamps teams.  All the while, still participating on Gina's Center Stage Alumni Team.  In October, 2010, Gina offered me a position on HER Design Team.  And I am forever grateful for everything she has shared, and helped me with.  GK Rocks!!!  While on Gina's team, I was honored to meet up with another awesomely talented lady... Suzanne J Dean.  She too is on Gina's DT.  I was lucky enough to go take Suzanne's Copic classes in the fall of last year and I have to say... Wow!! I learned so much more about Copics than I ever thought I would.  Suzanne has become a fabulous friend and being the wonderful teacher she is... I am still learning from her daily and truly am blessed to have Suzanne to call a friend.  I owe a lot to these ladies and they continually amaze and teach me on a daily basis!  Love you all!!  So... how about some blog candy now??? :-)

I thought an "engagement" card was quite appropriate today as it IS the beginning of later anniversary celebrations, right?  So in honor of my blogoversary... I am offering Tami's "Special Occasion Tags" set today.  There are so many occasions you can use this for I know you will love having it in your stamp library.  Here's a full look at the set....


a- Special Occasion Tags
But that's not all....  the awesome Suzanne Dean (whom I call the Copic Queen!) has offered one of her online Copic Classes as well!!! Woot!! Trust me... you will never look at Copics the same way once you have taken Suzanne courses!!  Nothing could ever prepare me for how much I learned in such a short time with her. You can look at Suzanne's online classes HERE!

Banana! Happy Blogniversary! I already forgot when I started mine..seems a trillion years ago!
jokes apart. The web is lucky to have your inspirations around!

Shari said...

yes, your blog updates get sent to my blog and that is great. love what Gina K does as well, and that set is on my list as changing what making somewhat and requiring more stamps. As for copics, very untalented at that yet and instruction would be absolutely the best.

Congratulations on your three year. There is hope for the rest of us yet.
