Happy Blogoversary To Me!!



I am so sad that I missed Mary Jo's sketch last week. :(
I did #1 and was so hoping to do #52 to celebrate a year of TechnoStamper sketches! I participated in 40 of the 53 sketches. One week I posted 5 different cards with MJ's sketch of the week! But I just wasn't able to get around to it last week. I was busy with other cards that I had to complete for Inky Antics to bring to CHA next week. I am glad I was able to squeeze in Mary Jo's Sketch this week! You can view the original sketch, MJ's awesome card and links to other players here. Then get stamping and link us up to your creation using Sketch 53!

I know I have said it several times before, but it was because Mary Jo was starting these sketches that I started this blog and became a "born-again" stamper. She was looking for people to be an "inspiration team" for a weekly sketch challenge that she wanted to start on her blog. So I told her I would do it and maybe it would get me started stamping again. Somewhere over the past several years, I had lost my love of stamping. Well I must have found it again, because over the past year I have made 220+ stamped cards/projects!

I doubt that I would have stayed motivated to keep it up if it weren't for all of the wonderful blogging friends that I have made. Knowing that my peers from the stamping world wanted to come and see what I made and leave a kind word means a lot to me. I have a friend that likes to act like the approval of others means nothing to her. HA! she's such a faker! Let's be honest! Who doesn't like a pat on the back?! I don't know about you, but my hubby gives me either a half hearted "great card"...or an over exaggerated "WOW! This is amazing"....(that's what I get for complaining about the half hearted responses!) And my mom thinks every card I make is truly wonderful. Good ol' mom! I have to say that I do get honest opinions from my Orla...sometimes BRUTALLY honest! LOL! However, she is only 7...so I try to keep both the praise and criticism in perspective. Kristen is also good for an honest evaluation. As much as we are very alike, there are some things that we really differ on. We all have different opinions and it is always fun to see the different comments I get on different cards. Sometimes I make a card that I really impressed myself with (LOL!)...but doesn't seem to be such a big hit with others! Talk about putting me in my place! LOL!
Anyhooooooo, I have really enjoyed getting to know you too! There are some people who I never knew of or some that I was somewhat familiar with, but have gotten to know much better by their blogs or the comments they leave or personal emails they have sent. There has been so much that I have learned from so many! It has been a wonderful time!!

Thank you so much to all my readers. I truly do appreciate your visits and comments. Thanks for keeping me motivated!

Don't forget about the blog candy that I am giving away!! You have through tomorrow (Jan 20th) to enter! I will announce the winners on Wednesday!

Have a Majestic Monday!!
