New Friends

It's always so nice to meet new friends in blog land.  This week, I have had several new friends stop by to follow, leave a comment or words of encouragement, and I want each of you to know how much it means to me.  I think I've visited each blog and followed everyone that followed me.  If I ever miss someone, please let me know.  This is how we grow our blogs - by visiting new people and gaining inspiration from their creations, and then encouraging them, following them, and having them follow us.  I thank you for being a part of my blog, and I am always so blessed by yours.

I'm entering the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  Each week, they give away a $50 Gift Certificate to their amazing store.  I am always in great hope of winning this amazing challenge, which you can enter here:  http://www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/12/simon-says-anything-goes.html - Anything Goes

I found a new challenge blog called Skipping Stones, and I decided to enter their challenge this week.  It is based on a sketch, and you can read all about it, and even enter it, by clicking on this link:

Something New, well - I have made several new friends this week (as I mentioned), but I also used a new word art file on this project, so I entered at Little Red Wagon here:

Also, I might as well Pile It On since it's still December, and I LOVE their challenges too.  You can check that one out by clicking right here: http://pileitonchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/12/pile-it-on-49-december-month-long.html- December/Bling It Up
Since I got this Bible verse art from one of our generous sponsors at Word Art Wednesday, I thought I would link it up and enter it at www.wordartwednesday.blogspot.com - Challenge #9.  I encourage all of you,  PLEASE stop by Word Art Wednesday and enter the challenge, and make it a part of your weekly routine to play along with the fun challenges there.  We need you.

I appreciate your kind comments, and just the fact that you are here visiting my little blog.  Please let me know what you've been creating this week, and I look forward to stopping by to visit YOU.

Blessings,

Karen
