WHOOHOO!!! everyone, hello, hello, I made......100 followers.

Thought it would never happen 10 months ago, but I got here...thankyou all so much.

You have helped build my confidence, self esteem, and given me so much inspiration, I'm so grateful.

16 more sleeps till my birthday and definately a CANDY.......

Two more cards, now that I have stopped swinging on the light fittings, pretty simple cards, and different for me.

I had no idea what I was going to do when I started, but I wanted to enter a challenge at  Fussy and Fancy challenge because I only had to use a zip or a feather...I went with zip.. as I had this cool tape that I purchased not long ago and wanted to use it. The card just built itself {dont know where I was }and I added this cute image from 'Dora' coloured it in and then sat and looked at it...Then the sentiment popped into my head, and I put bows on the top of the 'presents'. Different!!

The next one was a sketch at Challenge card patterns

This one was a goody, I followed it much easier...

Another simple wee card, but it felt right. It is for a lady who passes by my house, and if it is drizzling, pouring, or just plain raining, she scoops my junk mail out and brings it to my door..bless her..She never stays,  never a bother, she just does it. So I made this for her as she did tell me once that she loves 'Bambis'
The sentiment says' It's the little things' and the bottom one says ' thank you from the bottom of my heart'

Thats a sentiment I could have enlarged to send to all of you......

Thanks for stopping by,

Chrissy both your cards are fabulous, but I am so intrigued by the zipper one. That zipper makes for an interesting embellishment. I think you may start a new trend girl!!! Very clever and creative.

Congrats on the subbies. How exciting. I am at 92 and counting. I didn't want to do a candy until afterwards as I wanted people to subscribe for liking my blog not the candy. I am like you though. I am still amazed that I have over 5 people on my blog. Anyway, I just wanted to say Hi and congratulate you. great cards as always. Hugs, Lisa
