♥ sharing bella blvd cards ♥

good morning, thank you so much for all the wonderful notes, emails and texts i have received about the jillibean soup announcement.  your friendship means the world to me and whether i have received good news or bad, you have always been so supportive and loving, thank you!

i wanted to share the cards i submitted for the Bella Blvd call a few weeks ago.  I did not make the team, but my very talented, amazingly wonderful friend Shellye McDaniel did and I could NOT be happier for her.  her cards are always BEYOND inspiring and i know they picked an amazing person and friend.

here are my cards 
(i only had scraps to work with since i have been in the middle of the move, so please forgive that they are using Christmas Wishes and Spring Flings and Things, it's what I had left)


i love Bella Blvd, love, love them.  and while i didn't make the team, i always look forward to EVERY release and will continue to use and love every last scrap, it was a privilege to even try and have them consider my submission.

hugs & so much love!

♥ i can share my happy news ♥

i am so thrilled to be able to share the happiest of news.

my sweet and amazingly talented friend, becky  not only began my love of everything jillibean, she has been the most supportive encouragement to use and not hoard my jillibean soup papers and embellies.  i want to thank her for encouraging myself and others to apply and share our love of jillibean.  
i also want to share that i know so many amazing people who tried out and know their jaw-dropping work, i am absolutely humbled to have been selected because they are truly the most amazing designers and inspire me every single day.   thank you jill and kimber for this amazing opportunity!!!

and what would a post be without some cards to share?  not too good in my honest opinion ;)


my eldest son is in college this year, starting his freshman year, and he play football.  he is a long ways from home and i could not be more proud of him, but oh how i miss him. i created him a couple of "miss you" cards using the  jillibean soup game day chili line

thank you so much for allowing me to share my news with you.  thank you so much for the sweet comments, i have been without internet during my move and now have wifi in my home, yay!!!

have a beautiful weekend!
hugs & all my love♥
