A Happy Day!

Hi Dear Blogging Friends!  Today, my post is not about cards, I just want to say a BIG Thank You to all of you who visit my blog, and leaving me such lovely & kind comments.  It means a lot to me.

I started blogging because I wanted a place as a creative outlet to post all my little cards & projects.  And, a place to journal a little on my travel adventures.  I never thought I would meet friends from all over the world!  It's amazing!  For many years, I've been a solo little cardmaker in Kuala Lumpur who doesn't know anyone else who is as crazy as I am about stamping & cardmaking.  I felt so alone, but now, through blogging, etc, I've met others who are such avid stampers and cardmakers.  I am truly inspired!

I would also like to thank Melanie Muenchinger, who had faith in me when she invited me to be her Guest Designer for her wonderful stamp set "A Year of Borders".  I love her stamps and I had so much fun creating all the projects - every card/project made was from my heart, and I hope it comes through.  Today, she gave me a special mention on her blog, featuring a Spring card I made using the flower borders. Thanks, Melanie for appreciating my work.

I also had a little suprise from Emily Leiphart who awarded me a Liebster Blog Award.  Emily is such a talented crafter, and I love her work.  I'm still learning about this, and I will certainly be passing it on others.  Thanks, Emily!!
Lastly, I'd like to share a photo of me in Prague (taken a couple of years back), which I think is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Thank you so much for visiting me.

Take good care, and have an Amazing day!!

Kary - to visit your blog is such a blessing and joy, I really appreciate your style and thoughts.
I know what you mean by 'stamping in isolation' - my blog has opened up a whole new world of stamping and learning to me too.

Your award is well deserved.

you are so welcome Kary, the honor was mine! Discovering your work was like finding a diamond on the beach! :)

How lucky you were to visit Prague! That was my husband's favorite city when he lived in Europe for a year too, I really wanted to go when we went to Europe for two weeeks but it was just too out of th way fo the amount of time we there, train would have arrived in middle of the night, which he didn't want for us, etc. Someday, I hope...! Thanks or sharing a pic!

Hi Kary!

It's been a real pleasure to me 'meeting' you here on the internet, sharing cards, ideas and thoughts, so you're very very welcome!
Lovely card with you today, you've been an amazing guest designer! And that photo is such a pretty one, the colors of that city are beautiful! I also really enjoyed it there! But think my fave is Barçelona, or maybe Sevilla?...
Wishing you all the best!
Hugs, Wendy

Congratulations on your guest designer position, Kary! Your card is gorgeous!! I'm jealous that you've been to Prague. My husband has been and one day I hope to see it!
