!!!! Finally I have been able to find time to make a birthday card and take part in Virgina's virtual birthday party.
Although Virginia doesn't know it she is very important to me as she taught me something with the very first card I ever uploaded. I was sooooo nervous to join flickr. But back on June 25, 2010 I decided to take the plunge and, with a tremendous amount of technical help from my kids, I up loaded this card:
And I received comments...and it was exciting to have people other than my family say nice things about my cards. I immeadiately felt welcomed by the Hero Arts Flickr group. And then, I received this comment from Virginia...."Congrat on being featured in Hero Arts Twitter! You started in this group with a bang! This card is super lovely with the acetate!" and I was thrilled with her compliments and completely baffled with her comment about "twitter"! I had never heard of the term twitter and had no clue as to what she was talking about....so, I waited. And waited. And WAITED until one of my "teens" came home and filled me in on what twitter was....where it was located and how to find it in the Hero Arts group. And, then I scrolled thru the twitters and Virginia was right! I WAS MENTIONED O WOW O WOW O WOW! It was just all so new, and so exciting. And, now, here I am (still without a twitter account) but I upload cards, have made friends online (like Virginia) and have a blog! And just the other day I received this comment on some posted ATC's from Virginia...."PERFECT design for Chris mas ATC!! Way to go, Sheila! Congrats on the Hero Arts Tweet!". So, it just goes to show you.....when it comes to Virginia she is always "there" for all of us in the flickr group. She consistently has an upbeat attitude and a kind comment to make. So, thank you Virginia, for all the nice comments that you have made on my work in the 17 months that I have been in the the flickr group. You have NO IDEA how much your kindness means to all of us who have had the pleasure to have "met" you online. I wish you a very Happy Birthday and hope your birth day is the start of another wonderful year for you! Take care and thank you for inviting me to your party!
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great weekend!
