Dandelion Wishes ~ Get Well Wishes

Dandelion Wishes has been a particular favorite stamp set of mine – I just love the delicate and wispy seed heads that is very versatile.  I like to use and share cards made with just one stamp set, two at a pinch if I am looking for the perfect greeting.  However the Dandelion Wishes set has a greeting suitable for a get well card, another which would be perfect for an engagement or wedding card and a third I would use for a card for my husband…………. I made a wish and you came true ~ just perfect 🙂

Happy July 4th………. 650th Blog Post

WOW – 650 blog posts since I first started back in July 2013 – so today is a double celebration!  In the early days my posts were few and far between – often times I could not think of what to share, but these days I try very hard to post every other day as well as share video tutorials thru my You Tube channel.

I appreciate you following me, liking my posts and more importantly making comments – it just lets me know that you are all out there and I am not just talking to myself, so please ‘comment ‘ and ‘ like ‘ away – I truly  appreciate your giving me some of your time!

Now – back to business…………….. I am not a great one for going onto  Pinterest – not that I don’t love the whole concept but I loose track of time and suddenly 2 or 3 hours have passed and I have little to show for it!!  So I ration myself ~ maybe for about 30 mins or so.
