Chasing a Dream

Hello, blog visitors.  If you've found my blog, I'd like to say THANK YOU.  I cannot express to you enough how much it would mean to me if you would please become a follower of my blog.  In return, I promise to also follow your blog, and to visit and comment regularly.  I just love getting to know new people through blogging, and to gain inspiration from other crafters.  So, thank you in advance for stopping by to say hello.

I have been entering the weekly challenge at Simon Says Stamp for a long time now.  It's my dream (perhaps a Christmas gift to myself at this point) to think that I could possibly be drawn one week.  I also love entering other challenges from all the awesome blogs out there.  I'm chasing the dream of not only winning a challenge here and there, but also of gaining new followers and meeting new friends.  I have been honored and humbled to be invited to three Design Teams.  Sometimes I have to pinch myself to believe that anyone would desire to utilize my designs for their blogs, but it a great honor - not to mention a whole lot of fun.



This card was created for several different challenges.  They are:

I am truly honored that you would stop by to visit my humble little blog.  I certainly don't consider myself to be an amazing artist, but I do my best when I enter a challenge, and I really try to put my heart into it and give it my best effort.  Your honest opinions are greatly appreciated, and again, if you would please consider becoming a follower, I would not only be thrilled - I would do the same for you because I truly LOVE meeting new people.

I hope you're all having a great week, and I look forward to popping over to your blogs to see what you're all up to.  Thanks so much for visiting.

Hugs and Blessings to you all,

Karen
