A Big Thank You

Hello.  Welcome.  A special Hi and Hello to Becca.  So glad you have joined my little following. 

I have been reflecting on things.  Despite being busy with life I managed to post 263 times last year.  Some of those posts resulted in prizes.  Most of them resulted in comments, and I am very thankful to everyone who takes the time to visit, and especially those who take the time to comment.  I know I have not been so good at visiting and commenting last year and I hope to get around more and share the love this year.  I am also thankful for the friends I have made and the encouragement you give me.  For the fabulous people who are sharing amazing projects and inspiration every day that allow me to learn and expand my art and myself.  For the generous individuals and companies who give so much time, effort and also goodies that make blogland such a fun place to be.  So this one is for you because I wanted to say Thank You, that you have taken the time to include me in your day.  HUGZ

I started by embossing a layer of blue card with Cheery Lynn Diamonds and Starburst embossing plate and highlighting with Brilliance Starlight Silver ink.  I cut Cheery Lynn's Emperor Swan from silver card and backed it with the embossed layer.  I cut a dark blue mount and used the Starburst Silver ink to highlight again.  I cut a thank you from silver card using Sizzix Ida Lou's Flower Box dies and stuck them to a piece of the same silver card.  Then I backed it with some of the dark blue.
