Your Time to Shine

Hello! I had a chance to play with the Mojo Monday #136 sketch, which gave us the option to create a square or round card. I almost always pick the square version as I seem to be "circle challenged". I'm not sure how many times I've started round cards, only to end up tossing them out. Well, this time I decided that I was going to give it another try and stick with it... I love this sentiment (from Verve's Let it Shine), too - it makes me think of my DD, Sabrina.. Speaking of Verve.. the new release was on Friday... and OMGosh.. you don't want to miss any of it.. I got my new stamps yesterday (YES!.. just 2 days after the release.. they (Julee and her DH Mark) are just that amazing..:)))!!


Thanks so much for stopping by! MTME sneak peeks start tomorrow (the first of 3 days leading up to the release on May 1). Be sure to stop by Lauren's blog at midnight EST to see the line-up!

Personal note: I'd also like to say thank you to a couple of my cyber friends who recently gave me blog awards. Mary gave me a Beautiful Blogger award here. Mary is always so sweet and thoughtful (and she shares her wonderful talent on her blog, Where's My Creativity?). The second thank you is very overdue.. Mona (who isn't just a cyber friend since we met in person last week!) gave me a Sunshine award here. She and I became online friends and discovered we live not too far from one another. I am constantly amazed at her incredible talent (see her at Cupcake's Creations) and am honored to serve on a couple of design teams with her. Thanks Mary and Mona!! I am truly honored that you both thought of me. The rules of these awards typically involve passing them on to others. I always have a hard time with doing this because while I am constantly inspired by other bloggers, I also hate to give one person credit and not another... So, hopefully you'll understand that in fairness to everyone, I won't be passing them on, but rather I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has dropped by my blog (whether you subscribe, follow or just pop in now and then)!!
