"It's Carnival Time" at CWC

Hello, Hello My Friends...
It been a wonderful time going on here in my household and life lately. I truly feel the Blessings are flowing my way. I've been up to a lot and I will share as soon as I can and things become more concrete. I'll get right into the challenge going on today over at Cooking with Cricut. This week's theme is: Carnival and/or Birthday. I stepped out of my comfort zone again. I went with my first Side-Step Card. I really had fun with this and it was really easy to do. I can see me pre-making some base side-step cards for future use. This post is a little Bitter  Sweet for Me as it will be my last post for CWC Design Team. :-( I have so many things going on right now that I chose not to continue on for another term at this time. I will miss those wonderful designers, but will show up as often as I can to participate in the wonderful challenges or as a Guest Designer...hint, hint. :-). Ok onto my card...
Head on over to Cooking with Cricut and check out the rest of the Design Team's inspiration for you.
There is plenty more ahead for me and I will be sharing it with All of You Here. Please feel free to come back as often as you can. You never know when there might be some fabulous prizes in store or other goodies. Speaking of goodies, I will be having an upcoming give-away for my Be-lated Blogaversary; Who Does That?...Well ME, that's who. With everything going on I did not have to time to celebrate and plan a proper 1yr Blogaversary. So I'll be having a Be-lated Blogaversary! I'm always in the mood for a party so this one will be a lot of fun. Until next time...take care my friends I {Heart} All of YOU! Smooches...
p.s. I hear Google/Blogger with do away with the current "Followers" feature. Please take the time to Follow ME on the NEW LINK on the right. I Don't Want to Loose Touch with Any Single One of You.

Love Song Blog Hop WINNER!!!

Hello My Friends,
I still hope that You consider me one. I sincerely apologize for not posting the winner of the Blog Hop. I've always said I never wanted to be late when it came to posting winners because I know how hopeful and anxious everyone gets. I sure do.. I guess it's true that we "never, should say never". Anyhew please forgive me. I've been in training classes for a new job; getting in late and having to leave early in the mornings. Also I had to keep re-selecting a winner because bloggers did not comment on all blogs as I indicated. (I don't know about others, but I do check these things, because I want to make sure I'm being fair to everyone that is participating).Without further a due, the winner of the Love Song Blog Hop is.....

Nita said...
Ooooh, LOVE the silhouette! So romantic and pretty! And I love that song. :)
Congratulations Nita, 
please sent me your mailing info so that I can get your goodies out to you.

This is a Timeless classic to me and I can never get tired of hearing it. May she rest in peace. Such a wonderful, gifted voice. It takes me back to that one magical moment when I walked down the aisle to be with my Best Friend, Confidant and Partner for LIFE! We both have not look back since. We're 7yrs in and still smooching along...(lol).
