Thank You, Donna!

Back in April, the very talented (and generous!) Donna Phelan celebrated her “4th year in the Blog-O-Sphere” and offered visitors the chance to win a little something each Sunday throughout the month.  I was one of the lucky winners and received this “yummy” stamp set called “Sweetest Blessings” by Gina K Designs.

I am so appreciative for the awesome gift and also for all the wonderful inspiration that I get every time I visit Donna’s blog (, and you should definitely pop on over and check it out!

Thanks again, Donna, and congratulations on your 4th blog-a-versary!  (Sorry this post is so late; I am still trying to play catch-up here…)

It’s almost June?!

I have no idea what happened to the month of May!!  I have been a bit busy this month and haven’t had much time in my craft room or on my computer.  I hope things quiet down in June and that I can get back to stamping and to enjoying everyone’s latest projects soon!  I really miss it!!  (And I am soooo behind on cards I need to send!)

Things have been a bit busy around here lately.  I haven’t had much time to visit the blogs I usually visit or to play in the challenges that are always so motivating and fun.  I’m hoping that things will slow down a bit now that summer is here and am really looking forward to having more time to get back in my craft room (and on my computer) to check out what everyone has been up to and to “play with paper” again!

A big thank you to everyone who has been visiting my blog and for the wonderfully motivating comments that I really enjoy reading.  I REALLY appreciate it!!!

Thanks for checking out my post.
