Possibilities in Purple

IMG_8616 cupcake wishes money holder w 30

Hi everyone!!

I am really quite excited today!!!!   Yes!!!   I’ve reached over 100,000 hits on my blog and I am so amazed at the incredible journey that has led me here!!   I must admit I had no idea what to expect when I wrote my very first post just a year and three months ago!  I was nervous (what if no one even looked?) I was excited(what if a few people did look and even liked what they saw??)  I was worried ( I had no blog experience and not very computer savvy) and you know what? I am sooooo glad I took a leap of faith and swallowed my pride and my fears and did it!   This was huge for me!!! I’ve learned so much along the way, not only creatively, but about myself,  my confidence and my computer! heehee!

I always try to encourage any new bloggers whenever i come across them, like so many of you did for me!!

Thank You!! Thanks to all of you for encouraging me with your visits and comments!   I really enjoy sharing my ideas, and tutorials and getting feedback about my creative endeavours!  I have pushed my own limits and I am constantly learning from all of you on your blogs!!!

I have made many new friends and you all know who you are!!  I wish you were all my neighbours!  We’d drink a cup of coffee and stamp together every day (if I had my way) lol!!

I also want to celebrate with some blog candy very soon…I will post it in a couple of days and I hope you’ll all come out and play along to win!!!

Finally, here is my card for the CRAFTY CREATIONS CHALLENGE week #19!!   This week  Ali set the challenge for us and it is the color PURPLE!

I made a birthday money holder by cutting a white base to 8.5″ by 6.25″ and scoring  it at 3″ and 6″ .  The 2.5 ” end is the top fold that I cut in a curvy wave.   The bottom 3″ is folded up and the curvy top folds over it.  I made a cupcake inchie and popped it up on an adhesive foam square. The top tucks under it to keep the card closed.  The paper is from Memory Makers and I pulled out a old stamp set from Stampin’ Up! that I still love, called Curvy Verses.

I’m so glad you stopped by today!   Have a creative day!
