“I’m so Lucky” Blog Hop!!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the “I’m so Lucky” blog hop.  You should have arrived here from Vivi’s blog.  If you didn’t, you will want to go back to Jennifer’s blog and start from the beginning. 
With the theme being “I’m so Lucky”, we were asked to create two projects that represent blessings and things in our life that we are lucky to have.  Thanks so much to Jennifer for coordinating and planning this hop and for giving me the privilege of being a part of it! 
This is not just a hop – there’s also a challenge with a prize!  The challenge is posted on Jennifer’s blog and in order to win, you’ll need to hop along, post on each person’s blog and then post your project on Jennifer’s blog.  Now on to my projects!
The first project I made is a card.  I used Lacy Labels for the base and welded it with my Gypsy.  The doll is made from Paisley and I made the sentiment on my computer.  I made this card for a good friend of mine.  I am so very blessed to have some of the best friends in the world.  I am grateful for each and every one of them.

I was trying to think of what I’d like to make for my second project and was really trying to think of something to represent the blessings I have.  I decided on a cross shaped bookmark made from Indie Art.  The sentiment is from Stamping Solutions.  The GREATEST blessing that’s ever happened to me has been my relationship with God.  He blessed me with a husband, a family and a church that I love so very much.  I can’t begin to put into words how grateful I am for the blessings He’s given me.  I definitely am “so lucky” and completely blessed.  The bookmark is quite simple but the one word says it all for me. 
It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the black paper is textured and distressed.  The pink has a soft, glittery paisley pattern on it.

Don’t forget to keep hopping along.  Your next stop is my dear friend Sharon’s blog.  I’ve gotten to know her recently through the FIF Design Team and she’s such a sweetie.  I know she’ll have something great to share with you! 
One last thing….how about some Blog Candy??  Just leave me a comment with your contact info to be entered.  The candy is a surprise, so I’ll reveal it on the day I draw the winner.
