4th of July Card ~ Stars, Stripes, Ribbon and Bling

Oh my gosh I can not believe I have reached 50 Google Friend followers!
I really wish I knew how to see how many email followers I have because I know a lot of people prefer to follow that way, including me.
So to the 50 folllowers I can see and the ones that I can not...
I appreciate you coming and visiting my little blog and really, really appreciate when you leave me comments.
I started my blog with the help of my bloggy friend, Karon to share my crafts and to enter a few challenges.
I would like thank all of the wonderful bloggers who have challenged me to try new things, who have reminded me of long, lost techniques and helped me to expand as a crafter.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined I would be posting my 93rd post and have 50+ followers.
This has been an amazing adventure!
I hope you continue to go along with me as I learn, grow and share my crafts.
