Welcome back Friends, Fellow Stampers, and Blog Buddies☺
Makes my heart happy to extend a warm welcome to another new member>Thank you for following my blog♥
My daughter brought to my attention that my blog was growing each day in followers according to the calendar date, so for the past few days, for example: on the 26th of Jan. I had 26 on the 27th day you guessed it 27. How extremely cool is that? What a way to start the year, my gosh just think if it went like this all the way to the end of the year. What an amazing Blessing.. I truly couldn't believe it when #29 joined last evening.. My heart did a leap for joy. Now today I'm looking for #30.. who will be 30.. haha.. I sound like an auctioneer. anyways I just wanted to share that sweet story with ya all ♥
I have 3 cards today. The first one features the "lone" pine tree. I like the layout of this card, however you'll notice the little brads are uneven.. gives it a bit of character. Can't go wrong with character.
Next we have the little camper, I tried to practice coloring again. I had a cute sentiment that said "getting Hitched" but didn't have a need to use that yet.. so pulled out the cool digs. A few things about this card. At first glance I was going to turn it into a Packer camper in support of the football team, but I opted to be more neutral, so everybody could appreciate it. also I must add how much I truly enjoy that little brad. I think it ties it all together nicely.
And lastly we have the old fashioned wood stove. I like the background. I used an embossing folder to give it that weaved basket look. My Big Grandma had a wood burning stove like this and when I was a child I use to love to lift the plates to look in on the fire. I remember fondly how cozy and peaceful it always felt in her home. Another thing at Big Grandma's home was the "party line" phone, omgosh, being a city kid I had no idea people had to share a phone line, you'd pick it up and someone was already talking on the other end, and being a child, you know it. I listened in a time or two. Until the grown ups caught me, they put an end to my little eavesdropping and in a not pleasant way. Lesson learned, but memory stored. haha.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and walking down memory lane with me.
Do you buy stamps for memory sake?
☺Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping☺
*After a night's rest and some time pondering my blog, I wanted to add this little note: Please know that I don't think of you as numbers on my blog, even if I have only one person following I am humbled and grateful that you care enough to let me show you my cards. THANK YOU.
I wanted to clear that up, since I noticed someone decided to un-follow me, and that's perfectly ok. I just don't want my friends thinking I think of them as nothing more then a "blog number" because that is not true. I shall do my best to talk only of cards and things.. no more "statistics"
Hugs and Stamping Smiles to you all☺
