PDCC #106 ~ My 100th Post!

WooHoo 100 posts! Who knew that when I started this "blogging thing" back in April I would be having so much fun!! A bit of creating, a bit of rambling, learning so much from so many talented card makers, making blogging friends, winning a prize or two, sharing snippets of my day, journaling of sorts ~ I guess...did I say rambling LOL!!! Enough of that onto my card. Just look at these colors from the Play Date Cafe; pretty huh.
I put this little number together quickly. I headed straight for my new 6x6 paper pack from My Mind's Eye ~ the Lost and Found collection called blush (LOVE this collection!!!) The strip of yellow ruler paper is from Authentique. I opted not to do any stamping on this card since the pretty paper stands very well on it's own. The page I chose had a pretty image and a sentiment that suited my milestone post. A wee bit of stitching and a splash of buttons finish things up.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by! Don't forget you still have several days to make something grand to enter over at the Polkadot Door. Or you can just pay them a visit, comment and vote to win a prize! And there's a fun blog hop coming up on the 13th over at DeNami ( prizes there too!!!). I'll have a sweet little project to share for that one. Have a nice weekend! ~Lisa
