Reveal of My Brand-Spanking New Blog...Thanks and Thanks (plus two more)!!...Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #14~Shades of Concord & 9th

HELLO! HELLO!  HELLO!

Yes, I'm being  effervescent in my greeting today, because I'm over-the-moon ecstatic to share the reveal of my brand-spanking new blog!  Colourful (that header...swoon) crisp, clean (and will be more so, once I do a bit more tidying up.  I. LOVE. THIS. NEW. LOOK!

Full credit for this jazzy, snazzy update goes to sweet Loll, from Stamping with Loll fame, whose technological super powers and keen eye for design made it happen. Her ideas, her expertise, her creativity...lead to this and I couldn't be more thrilled!

THANK YOU X A MILLION, Loll! 

I've made a Thanks card (two actually) inspired by Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #14~Shades of Concord & 9th to express my gratitude to you for sharing your talents - and patience - with me!

Thanks Turnabout stamps and dies getting a work out...



Oh...and I have two more to add to the challenge!  Triangle Turnabout *finally* receiving some inking. This version uses all four turns...


and this, only one.  Hard to see, but my butterfly is a deep teal and the beautiful, a deep shimmery blue...

Hope my new blog catches your eye as much as it does mine! Playing here will be even MORE fun!

So glad you dropped by; your visit brings me joy!

Oh...and check out my new blog signature. Makes me happy!!

Wow! what shall I look at first!...your fantastic eye catching blog? or your beautiful cards? All are fabulous...you have traveled so far since you first encouraged me to enter challenges...something that of late has fallen by the wayside due to personal things to deal with thus resulting in a lack of time...but oh how I enjoy peeking at all your wonderful creations. Hugs as always and a big pat on the back...take bow. xx

That is one lovely swoosh of color across the top of your page, Carol. Kudos to Loll for making it and the signature for you. Your thank you cards and your use of the turnabouts are wonderful in their many shades of blue.
