Oh, so nice!

Goodness, there's a new Magnolia Challenge Blog, and I just discovered it today. Had to play along even though this is my second post in the last few hours! So glad I played too! I'm so happy with how this card turned out! I don't normally use these colors or distress too often. They have a tutorial up on it, so I tried some of her techniques, and was super happy with the results! I got this stamp from Sparkle, and thought she'd work perfectly for the challenge. Thanks so much for the extra goodies in my package, Sparkle! Distressing kinda makes me think of fall, and with the heat just kicking in for the summer, I'm already wishing it was fall! I sprayed glimmer mist all over the back layers of the card, but it's not showing up so well in the photograph.

I'm so excited too! For the first time, I've reach 2000 hits in one month! I made it barely tonight! I'm so excited about that, and honored that people stop by to peak at my blog! I'm closing in on 5000, too, hopefully next week! So excited about that! I just started my blog back in Oct, and added a counter the last weekend in March! It really means a lot to me when people stop by! So, thank you so much for doing that!
