Valerie's Blog Hop

The out pouring of warmth from all my friends was so overwhelming I was speechless. I'm still amazed that Mary Anne and Olga were able to keep this so quite. I really just wanted to take the time to let you all know how much I appreciated your efforts and well wishes. Your expression of good will and warmth touched my heart in a way that you will never know. Of course none of this would have been possible without Denise and Crissy of Whimsy Stamps . I will not retell the story because you know about the name the stamp contest.
Crissy is the illustrator of the lovely image. It amazes me she took time to visit all the blogs and leave comments. She contacted me through e-mail this morning to see how I was doing. These are gals I don't really even know, it all came about from joining a contest. All I can keep saying is WOW!
Whimsy Stamps has both digital and rubber stamps along with some of their own dies and paper. The economy right now prohibits a lot of us from purchasing new things at this time, me included. Soon I hope that will change I know this will be one of the companies I will support.

To finish this post off I'd like to leave you with this and hope it will put a smile on your face as it does mine each time I read it, sitting printed on paper hanging from my desk.
A while back I was looking for quotes to put on a scrapbook page and found this one " Little girls dance their way into your heart. Whirling on the tips of angel wings, scattering gold dust and kisses in our paths. " unknown author. I've not use it yet on a page but it certainly belongs in this post.
Thanks again
Hugs to all of you.

So glad that something we did made your day a little brighter, but the blessings are all on us. We are the ones that are so lucky to have you as a friend and to have the opportunity to work together as a group. I know for myself I count all of you as one of my greatest blessings. I know that Valerie would be proud of you and the wonderful things that you create. You are very welcome and remember you are in our hearts always.
