I recently received this honor from Rachel at Wonderfully Whimsy. I am truly touched! Thanks Rachel!
I am not very good about passing along tags, so instead below are 10 blogs that I visit regularly. (Actually I have hundreds of them in my google reader, but these are my latest “reads.”) Be sure to check them out. I know you will be inspired just as I am each time I visit.

The adorable bird is from the Bird Basics stamp set. This set is so much fun because you can make all kinds of birds with the different stamps in the set. I popped the little guy up with some 3-D Foam Squares and sponged a little Chocolate Ink on the edges to give him some dimension. The flourish “branch” that he is sitting on is from the Playful Flourishes stamp set which is another all time favorite of mine. The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday set.

Sorry about the car story. I am still shaking and can’t get it out of my mind so I thought I would share it with all of you. I know you are so glad that I did. LOL! Are ya thinking, “Ok. She is fine. Her kids are fine. Where’s the artwork?” Here ya go... *Ü*
Emporium Card Box with Cards Workshop
Saturday, April 4th from 1-4pm at my house. (Contact me for directions.)
ANYWAY onto the fun stuff... I have a great workshop coming up that you might enjoy. You don’t even have to be local for this one! I can mail you everything and you can make it on your own at home. We will be making a great box to store your cards along with some cards to match. All of this will be made out of a Level 1 Kit originally meant for scrapbooking, but can be used for so much more as you will see.
Here’s the scoop, you will get a Close to my Heart Memory Keeper Box, an Emporium Level 1 Kit, an extra sheet of Cocoa Cardstock, and a few embellishments to decorate your cards. The cost for the workshop is $25 or $18 if you place a $25+ order that day. I will have everything pre-cut for you so all you will need to do is put it together and decorate. Fun, fun, fun!
If you are not able to come but would like to order a kit (including the pre-cut paper and instructions), let me know and I will put a kit together for you. The cost will be the same $25 or $18 if you place a $25+ order, however there will be an additional charge of $5 for shipping. You may order as many kits as you like. Additional kits will only be an extra $2 each for shipping.
If you would like to sign up for this class, please let me know by March 18th. Space is limited and I know the class will fill up fast.
Here are a few other card boxes I made in the past. (If you are like me you have tons of handmade cards and no place to store them.) These boxes are a great way to store those little labors of love until you are ready to send them. Plus they look really cute all lined up on a shelf...
