Sharing time!!!!

Today I get to share my big news.....I am being featured over on Jill Foster's Inspired by....blog here and I am over the moon happy/excited/tickled by this turn of events.  I use the phrase "turn of events" because for me, this type of recognition really and truly is a "turn" for me.  Usually I just do my crafting because it is fun, comforting and it really gives me a way to relieve stress and have an enjoyable, peaceful time.  I craft because it gives me joy and I like to "make" things.  I like to color.  But I pretty much do it by myself and share it, when I can, here on my blog.  But to have someone like the very sweet Jill contact me and ask if she can show some of my cards on her blog....well, that is an email that made me glow to my toes.  I have followed Jill for sometime now and have always been "inspired" by her work....she just has a way about her art that makes even the most simple image grab your attention.  Her cards are always so compelling and I honestly feel that by following her blog I have learned so much....so, to now be on her blog-well, I feel very wonderful inside and am absolutely smiling as I am typing.  I am sooooo curious (as I am typing this entry without having a clue as to what cards she might have chosen) to see what cards Jill has picked and I am even more curious to see her takes on them! Please share in my excitement and go check out Jill's takes on my cards here . So, thank you Jill......you and your Inspired by.....recognition helped to make my year, my 2011 go out with style!

I also have a very simple card to share today that I made with some leftover scraps from yesterday's cards.  I was putting away these bits of paper when I remembered that I had an older Hero Arts stamp of a dove....much like the doves on the patterned paper.  So a couple of minutes later I came up with this card and for such a quick little card I am pretty pleased with how it came out!


Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you too are having a great day!

Be well,
Sheila

Now you have me smiling all over, my friend. You are just the sweetest and I am VERY honored to get to share your beautiful work in my neck of the woods. Love your card today, too! What a great combination of patterned paper with that stamped image. HUGS!

How exciting Sheila. I've just been on Jill's blog and was jumping for joy on your behalf. Well done. Jill chose a beautiful card to be inspired by. Love this card here too... saw it last night on Flickr and was suitably impressed!
