A Heartfelt Thank You!

IMG_2937


Today's card is for all of you. Yesterday was my birthday and Joyce of Cards-by-the-Sea hosted a linky party for my birthday. Joyce is a sweet sweet friend and virtual party planner extraordinaire.  I can't even begin to tell you how overwhelmed and honoured I was yesterday to receive birthday wishes from so many of you!  Blogging started out as a way to enter some card challenges while I was exploring what type of card marker I really am.  In the almost two years that I have had my blog I have made so many wonderful friendships from around the world.  I hold each and everyone of those friendships close to my heart. Which brings me to today's card. This is my way of saying thank you to all of you for for making yesterday a truly special occasion for me. I blog because of all of your encouragement and support so this heartfelt thank you is for you!

Using autumn colours and of course stitched mats for my card.
