Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Thank You From The Bottom Of My Heart

Happy Friday! I know I'm late with today's posting, we went to a Christmas party last night and didn't get in til the wee hours and it felt so good to sleep in! I should have put this on auto post but was so busy yesterday, I never got around to it, and I didn't want to post it until Gigi had received the card.

Here is a Thank You card that I made for my dear friends Gigi and Eduardo. Although my birthday was in October, (which reminds me, I really must change my profile, I am 54 now, not 53 as stated in my wonder I don't know how old I am...LOL) for may reasons we weren't able to get together to celebrate until this past weekend. And what a great weekend it was! As you can tell from the picture they showered me with gifts. They really out did themselves, and I was like a kid in a candy store! Ever since I can remember, I have had a passion for Tweety. The Pirate Tweety is SO cute. You hide him then press his foot and he calls out to you to find him. When my grandson was here earlier in the week we had a blast playing with him! They gave me, not 1, not 2 but 3 gift cards...a Visa gift card, a gift card for my favorite cosmetic store, Ulta and another for Disney. I won't say how much they were for BUT I will tell you, they spent WAY to much!!! They also gave me this years Tweety Christmas ornament from Hallmark, 2 Spongeables, 1 for my feet, the other for the shower in my favorite scent, pink grapefruit, a Happy Birthday cupcake bath fizz, that looks good enough to eat, 2 Florida Lottery scratch off tickets, which by the way were not winners, and my FAVORITE...a talking Tweety birthday card that says "I tawt I taw a cutie pie...I did...I did...It's you!" And as if that wasn't enough, they took me to dinner at the German pavilion at Epcot. I can't remember when I had so much fun. Even though we don't get together often and sometimes don't talk to one another for weeks or months, words cannot express how much their friendship means to me...Gigi and Eduardo, thank you for making my birthday special...we love you!

Now on to today's card---

Here's The Recipe---

Card Size: 4.25 x 4.25 Square

Stamps/Images: Cutting Cafe Social Butterflies, Studio G (sentiment)

Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop

Punch: EK Arrow Border

Accessories: Ribbon, Flat Back Pearls, Heart Charm, Foam Pop Dots

If someone knows why Blogger double spaces (as in the recipe) and what I can do to prevent it, I certainly would appreciate a comment. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does, it drives me crazy (which is a short drive these days). I've tried everything I know to stop it but it doesn't work.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit. I hope to see you again on Monday! Have a great weekend! By the way, thank you for all the sweet comments and encouraging words ya'll posted on yesterday's posting about my card being posted on Stampendous.

Hi Everyone!
Just wanted to share a common feeling with all of you. All of Kelly's cards are as "SPECIAL" as she is. She puts so much love and devotion to each design and sentiment. One can not help but love her cards as they reflect the person that she is.
Kelly is so appreciative of all the small things in life which makes her that more lovable. We love spending time with Kelly and her husband Tom. They remind you of what living is all about. So we are the lucky ones! Thank you Tom and Kelly for your friendship and for all those "SPECIAL" cards. We love you too!

Gigi & Eduardo

I think it double spaces because you bold printed the beginning words.
now for that great card, they will treasure it!
and what a way to spend you belated birthday!

Rachel said...

Oh kelly how sweet are they! you have such special friends!! Happy Birthday. your thank you card is lovely. Have a great weekend.

Hi Kelly,
I once again did not understand everything what you wrote. Only so much that you had a lot of fun.
And whether you're 53 or 54 years old, but plays no role. We women are still without age. I will soon have 63 - terrible.
Your card has once again become beautiful, I like the colors very well.
