Blogversary & You Are A Blessing To Me

Hey everybody! I wanted to post this, this morning and tell all the wonderful things that have happened this past year of starting my Blog. But, that didn't happen! I have been extremely busy with so many things, that I didn't have time to do an Amazing post! Maybe that one will come later! So this is a very simple little post, to tell you how much you mean to me! It is so amazing to have people come and like your creations and leave you wonderful comments! I started my blog last year on January 14th, after my daughter had been encouraging me to do it! I was a little nervous to share my stuff with the world, but I did it and I am so happy that I did! I started this blog to share creations, but my main focus was to try and show the love of Christ through it! I pray that I have done that in some way! When God told me to start the St. Jude's card drive, I was a little unsure, if it could be done. But He provided all you wonderful people to help make it possible! So from the bottom of my heart, Thank You! You are all a Blessing to me! :)
I wanted to share the first card, I ever posted, and it was for one of KWerener's Color Challenges. I made the card for my daughter Autumn, for encouraging me and believing in me! I love you Autumn! :)
And here is my card today, for all of you! :) I saw these flowers first from Savirti, and she gave us this link, for the tutorial. So easy to make and so cute! :)
Here is another card for St. Jude's. I made a whole bunch the last couple of weeks. Have still have a few more to show. But I'm not sure if I will need to make anymore, we have had such a great response! Thank you all again! :)
And here is another prize for the drawing! The lady who donated it, would like to stay anonymous, but you know who you are, and Thank you! :)
