Here's an awesome image from Sweet Pea artist Rebecca Sinz called Longing (plate # 224). Isn't she beautiful?  I decided to color up this card using a dual tone combination of pinks and white.  I think the card turned out just lovely with those colors.

Hope you all had fun with me during Blog Candy month!!  I can't believe March is here. It's super busy at my house not. First thing I am doing is tracking down the rest of the winners.  If you see your name in BLUE on the Blog Candy Winners posting (See below), then please email me at  Mailing will start on Monday, so you will see names posted each day for packages going out in the mail.  I hope you all love the goodies!! 

Thanks so much for all the support I got back when I was SO sick and suffering so badly going through and having brain surgery and then healing.  Thanks so much for celebrating with me now, the amazing recovery and remarkable healing that I have been given.  Just know that even when life may be so hard and so painful, and I mean daily struggles with horrible pain that is debilitating to the point of no longer working, even going outside your own house, that a real miracle can be just around the door for you.  And you just like me could find that doctor and two months later have those surgeries and three years later be celebrating like I am now!!

Hugs all, Holley

HUGE HUGE HUGE Thanks to Sweet Pea Stamps, Artist Sandra Caldwell of BabyCakes Doodle This and That, Squigglefly, Queen Kat Stamps, Scrapbook Stamp Society, and Paper Temptress for joining in with me on my celebration.  You all are just wonderful.

  21. Your words of wisdom speaking from experience may be helping that person who is struggling physically or emotionally - you are a beautiful example this month of how there are better times ahead and to take it one day at a time when we are going through those very difficult times. I am honored that I got to meet you through your celebration this month. Wishing you continued good health and happiness.
