A belated birthday note

I've heard other card makers and papercrafters say that you know how much someone means to you depending on how much layering and detail is in the card.  Well if that is true, there are many layers here and glitter ta-boot!  I guess that means that you mean a lot to me Berni.  Happy Birthday to you, hope you enjoyed your day!  Thanks for being such a good friend!

(A note about the stamps, the "you" stamp is SU!, however, the main image is produced by Amuse.)

Floral Frenzy Blog Hop

Welcome to the Denami Designs Floral Frenzy Blog Hop. You should have come here from Laura's blog. 

Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

You have until March 14, 2011, 11:59pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).

Here is my card.  Now unfortunately, I didn't have a Denami floral stamp, so I had to go with some stickers for my flowers, BUT I hope to get some very soon because I LOVE my Denami stamps.  In fact, I won by commenting along the blog hop, I was soooo excited!

Now please move onto Tina's blog and enjoy the rest of the hop!  Thanks for stopping by.

When life gives you limes...make margaritas!

OK, I know you've heard that saying, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" right!?!  Well i am actually partial to this version of it, "when life gives you limes, make margaritas!"  And that my friends is just what I am going to do.  :)

Recently I submitted a few cards to PaperCrafts Magazine Go-to-sketches.  This was not the first time I've submitted, nor will it be my last.  None of them got accepted, but I feel like it is still a fun process and SOME DAY one will get accepted.  Don't worry, you will know when that day comes, I'll be shouting from the rooftops!  Meanwhile, I am having fun making the cards and feel like my abilities are ever-growing. 

If I am honest though, when the acceptance emails go out and I don't get one, I am a little dissappointed.  BUT thanks to Amber at Damask Love, I am turing that frown upside down and looking at the bright side of things, which is why I am participating in Amber's Reject Blog Hop.  Thanks for the pick-me-up Amber, looking forward to MARGARITAS BABY!  :)

Here are a couple of the cards I submitted for the PaperCrafts call, which are now part of this lovely blog hop! I didn't save the original sketches and can't find them at this point, so I made these from memory, I think they are pretty close.

Of course, if I could take a good picture (below- baske CS color is supposed to be Regal Rose) that might make a difference- ha!

Thanks again for the reminder that this is all supposed to be fun Amber!

Have a great day everyone!

Thank you!

I just wanted to send out a quick thank you to all that visited me during Jenn's Birthday Blog Hop!   It was a ton of fun and I appreciate getting all of your wonderful comments.  Stop by later today for a new post. :)
