Good morning campers, Hi Di Hi !!!
Happy Blogaversary to me, Happy Blogaversary to me . . . . . . . . Yes, can you believe its 4 years today since my first fledgling post. There were no photos on the first post as I hadn't a clue what I was doing (some would say I still don't lol!!!).
Also, the very first person to leave a comment has never been back since . . . . . . . not sure what that says hahaha!!!
I am giving away a Paddle Prize to mark the auspicious occasion. Please see below.
Now, I thought it appropriate to show a birthday card to mark the occasion (and to give you a break from Christmas)
Cream and dark cream card
First Edition Family Ties papers (from 12x12 pad)
SB Curved Borders 2
SB Fancy Tags 1 (Framed)
SB Classic Ovals
John Lockwood Sentiment
Memento Dew Drop Peanut Brittle ink
Cream satin ribbon
Hopefully you can see the sparkle on this lovely paper.
Its been an eventful 4 years (aint it just!!!) but I have met some wonderful folk along the way. Mr Lockwood was the first person I actually met face to face 4 years ago this Summer. We overdosed on caffeine and chat at the food court in Fosse Park (caffeine, I remember you dear friend. . . . . .)
Then the Scottish Posse, as they used to be known, Kate, Patricia and Hazel along with Christine. Fortunately, Christine and I also get to meet up at the NEC and other local craft shows, health permitting.
There is also Wendywoo (Spanish Crafter), John's friend from Spain on a couple of occasions.
Iv'e also met up with Jan and Anne from Northampton and Joy, Pauline and Annette (John's Breedon ladies) at CE Towers when being John's glamorous assistant (I'm Debbie McGee to his Small Daniels).
I also am not forgetting Ann Oliver and the gruesome Sue-some (Olliesmam and Planet Susie) at the NEC and also, Karenlotty and Sandra at Ally Pally.
And last year, all the way from Livermore in California, the utterly hilarious Darnell, whilst on her UK Tour.
I also chat by email behind the scenes with some of you lovely ladies and hope that one day, we too can meet up . . . . . . Elaine, we'll be good when you decide to rent next door but remember our street's dress code of Lycra and/or pyjamas.
What a wonderful thing this blogging mularky can be eh???
To celebrate these 4 years and as a thank you for putting up with my inane ramblings about life, health and goofy neighbours, I am offering the following Paddle Prize . . . . . . . .
I thought the die was quite appropriate as I want to say "Thanks for Everything".
To be in with a chance to go in the draw for the above, you need to be a follower and leave a comment on this blog post. I will get Mr D to do his pulling duties (Steady ladies!!!) on 19th April at 7pm so that gives you all 2 weeks to leave a comment.
On that note, I shall let you get on with your day. Once again, thanks for sticking around and for your ever thoughtful and encouraging comments.
Bless ya all !!!
