One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Baby blog Hop

Little Miss Croghan!
Congratulations Lesley and Corey!
This is the beginning of all things wonderful and what a fantastic way to grow your family  with a new human little Croghan (versus all the fur babies you have) !!!

Lesley totally took me by surprise several years ago when I received an email from her asking if I would like to join the team on Seize the Birthday!  That was something I didn't even have on my radar and boy was I excited and nervous!  But I said YES!!  And have loved being on that challenge with all those awesome girls.  Then a couple years later she wrote me again and asked if I would like to join the Merry Monday team.  OMG!!  Lesley opened doors for me and challenged me in ways she will really never know, but without her I would NOT be where I am today with my card making and I would definitely not have all the amazing friendships that have resulted because of her!  Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to design for two of your many challenges Lesley!  I pray for only the very best for you and your new little one!!  Congratulations!

I couldn't resist CASing a card from PTI for this darling Baby girl card for Lesley!
We have a Blog Hop going to let Lesley know we love her and are praying for her and her family with the delivery of this little baby girl.
We would love for you to join us in this baby blog hop.
Go HERE to play along and bring baby cards to Lesley!

Heart Hugs, friends!
