Here is the card I created for the Grillin & Chillin Blog Hop and I actually created a Blog just so I could upload this card!  Yikes!  I have wanted a blog for awhile and with some encouragement from my friends Betty Anne, Debby D and Sherrie, I decided to take the plunge and have one. 


  1. Beautiful card, Christine:) Can't wait to see what else you create:) I am your 2nd follower now...good luck and happy to see your up and running with your blog!

  2. Welcome to the blogging world Chriss, I know you are going to love it. I love the card you made, the silhouette and the lady bugs are just too cute.
    You mentioned in your FB post that you wanted to make your blog more scrapbooking looking. Not sure how you could do that but if you are wanting to change your background you can find free backgrounds, buttons and things at this site

  3. Yahoo! Christine has a blog! I have seen you comment on my blog many times and I am just so happy I will be able to do the same on yours now! I am #5 follower before long you will be at 50 and then you will just keep on going. Love your card it is just so darling! Make sure you check out the challenge at My Craft Spot, and Fantabulous Cricut is another good challenge blog. Great way to get followers and who knows maybe even win a bit of candy! Have a great week.

  4. This card is so gorgeous, Christine! Welcome to the blogging world! It can be a bit overwhelming at first but it is so rewarding. I'm pretty new myself...just started in mid-March. I'm already completely, totally addicted! If you ever have any questions, I'm by no means an expert but I'd love to help if needed. I'm follower #7! Have a great week :)


  5. Wow! Beautiful card!!!! So good it made you start blogging!
