Etsy Birthday Bash!!!



Happy Saturday Everyone!
Sorry about my absence these last few days but I needed to take some time to myself. Hopefully most of you understand about online friendships & when you lose someone so suddenly & tragically; it takes a toll.

My post for today is in honor of Etsy's First Birthday. To celebrate this day, there's a blog hop with some awesome prizes in store--see the cool banner to the right!!! Per SU! new rules, I have to sit this event out but I still wanted to make a creation for today. I chose the Etsy shop Imperfectly Beautiful as my inspiration this week. Her pretty blocks totally inspired my creation & I hope you enjoy it as much as I had FUN making my glittery card!!

Please go to Ashley's blog to read all the details about the blog hop. Good Luck & Have Fun!!!!!
TTFN,
Hugs,

  7. Jackie, love your creations this week. Lovely as a Tree never gets old! What a terrific card this is. I've used the EP on the whole stamped panel before, and loved the results. I've been thinking about that lately, and maybe you've nudged me to do it again. Great blocks, too!

  13. Jackie, will you be giving up your design team work to continue with SU?

    I think if everyone kind of waits it out, SU may retract the new agreement for something a little softer.

    Your card is so pretty and I love the JOY! Great job. Feels so festive!
