A Prize Winning Card for my Bloggy Friend Christina

Hello Friends & Welcome Visitors,

I love having this blog and I love all of my bloggy friends and I do believe that this love is a never ending circle.  My friend Jehanne Silva-Freimane sent me a stamp from Treasured Times just as a little gift for no reason.  I made it into a birthday card for my bloggy friend & design team buddy Christina Gay Merrill.  I also entered it into Just Some Lines Mini Challenge and won!

Oh by the way, Just Some Lines is having a Halloween challenge right now...check it out.

Anyway here is my prize winning card for Christina!  Happy Birthday my friend.  You are one of the most courageous women I know.  When life gets to feel like it is too much and I want to give up; I think of you and Joshua and all that you have been through and then I know that my suffering is nothing.  I wish you many, many years of love, light & laughter!  Here is your card (it will probably be in the mail tomorrow).

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Die Cuttin Divas - Challenge #185 Anything Goes
Anything Goes With A Twist - Challenge #1 Anything Goes
Card Making Mamas - CMM90 Mini Cards or Tags
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - #124 Lots of Pink 

Thank you so much for stopping by my bloggy friends.  The circle of love among all of us continues.  Thank you so much for your comments.  I appreciate them all so much!
