Yesterday ... no. Two Years?!

Yesterday, I mentioned how quickly the month of April had flown by!  Today?  I realized it is two YEARS since my very first blog-post!  Oh my - time truly does fly when you're having this much fun!

Thank you, to all of you sweet friends who stop by to share a thought, your heart, and often your lives, with me ... I am truly blessed.

My card today is for all of you, and of course a challenge!  Tic Tac Toe #9 for me today:  Things that Fly, White Space, and a little window for my Scene:

5 x 7 card ... Inside sentiment: 
'Love will come in, if you leave your heart open for it!'
 
Thanks for your visit ... every. single. one. 
You can't know what they mean to me! 
 
= Michele

WOW!! Michele, congratulations on celebrating your 2 year Anniversary, time definitely flies when you are having so much fun.
I read your first blog and, like you, I was encouraged by my dear stamping buddies, they kept gently pushing and nudging to start a blog, they were relentless but now, I'm so happy I finally gave up and conquer my fear of technology and created my little blog and, well.....it's been simply awesome!!!
I truly love this community, all of us who share the joy of creating can only benefit from it, my creativity has an outlet now and I'm having a blast.
I ADORE THIS CARD!!!!! what a feast for the eyes, your little window with that gorgeous butterfly peeking in is lovely, the embossed "wall" looks stunning.
I wish for you many more years of crafting and sharing your amazing cards with us.
Off to pinning this beauty.
Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.

Things on this side of the Lake have been bonkers or I would have been caught up by now...*sigh*. I had a chance to peek at your 'anniversary' card yesterday, but no time to comment. This morning before DH gets up, and my day centers around his care, I will give it another shot! This is just lovely, and I love the texture you've given your pretty base. I love the white on white on white. It's calm and serene and makes me happy just to stare at it. Gorgeous. You've been a good friend, and a great fit in blogland. I can remember finding some of your first posts, and going, "...what???!!! This girl is amazing!" You're an incredible card maker, and it's always good to pop in here and see what blow-me-away-again cards are up. Happy Blogaversary! Bev

Judy Woodland said...

So beautiful....love white on white.

Bobby said...

One word for you, Michele. Elegant. Congratulations on your blogaversary. A couple more weeks and it will be my 5th. What? Yes, time does fly and the older you get the faster it goes. But oh what fun we have while it speeds along.

Amy Rohl said...

Classy!!

Tracey McNeely said...

Let's try this again, as apparently my grammar is atrocious!
WE are incredibly blessed that you share your thoughts, your heart, and your life with us! Like Bev, I remember my initial discovery of you, with exactly the same response: who is this diva of design with the extraordinary talent and the sweetest, most charming (and most punniest!) personality EVER! We love you! You have enriched my life immensely! Your card: swoon-inducing! Love it; love you!

Congratulations on 2 years of blogging. That seems like such a short time given how famous you are now. But, I do remember you taking the blogosphere by storm. Today's card is so beautiful. I am loving all the white, and the textures and that wonderful open window with the butterfly. All just gorgeous.
