High hopes challenge #37, & my blogoversary!!!!

Good morning, my lovely blog readers!!!! Today is a very special day for me.....one year ago today I decided to join the crazy world of blogging. I balked for a long time....I thought it would take wayyyy too much time....but I decided to take the leap & I'm so glad I did!! I have met sooooo many wonderful people in the past year.....thank you so much to all of you who visit, leave comments, email me, & have become my friends. I'm still waiting for a package from High Hopes in order to put together my blog candy.....but it should be any day now so be sure to check back!!!!

Today's card is actually for Sunday's High Hopes challenge.....to use stars or stripes on your card. Can you believe I don't have *any* star punches OR dies??? Tsk.....I'll have to do something about that!!



I used the adorable Singing Catrina from the last release.....& yes, she's decked out in some BRIGHT clothes so you might want to get your shades!! I used Certainly Celery for the base, & some papers from the DCWV Nana's Kids stack for the background & the oval. She is colored with Prismas & gamsol.....& I added Stickles to her jackets & belt. Aren't all those young stars all about bling??? Actually, the jacket & belt are more purple IRL, they are showing up quite pink on my monitor. I added the "You Rock" sentiment, also from the last release, along with some ribbon, plus some matching Primas in the corner. Voila.....a perfect birthday card for that Hannah Montana/Demi Lovato/High School Musical lovin' girl!!!




Here's a close up of Catrina & all of her sparkle!!




The inside is fairly simple....I just added some punched flowers using the same paper I used on the front.

Thanks for checking in, I hope you have a wonderful day!! The temps really dropped here....it's only about 60 after many days in the 80's & 90's. Perfect day to play outside!!!! And as soon as I get that beautiful package from Canada......I will be posting my candy so be sure to keep an eye out for it!!!!! Thanks so much for visiting.....today & every day for the past year.....I appreciate each & every one of you!!!!!
