Delightful Decorations Class

This is a 'sneak peek' at one of the cards we will be making in my Delightful Decorations Class.  I have to thank Kerin Sylvester for the inspiration for this card--I CASE'd her little gem. I haven't received my Shimmer Paint yet so I couldn't give it that extra sparkle. I'll make another when my order arrives!

Hit Counter Gone Wacky!

I almost flipped the other day when I noticed my hit counter had reached over 11,000 hits. My heart skipped a beat and I think I blushed! I was amazed to think that I had THAT many people taking time to read my blog! Alas, I have since discovered that the free hit counter,one many bloggers have installed, has played havoc with my hit counts as well as many others. So, I am back to square one. I have installed one from and I'll just start again!
