Happy Birthday City Crafters..

WOW!  It's so hard to believe that
City Crafters Challenge Blog has been
around for two years.



I have to say two years ago I was pretty nervous when Kirsty
asked me to be on there team..  For one thing I was not real confident
about my work.  I feel like I have come a long way since then.
I am so glad I said yes.. I have meet so many lovely ladies.
And seen so many talented bloggers out there.
I am always totally inspired when looking at all the wonderful
creations out there in blog land!


So this week Kirsty is our hostess and is Challenging us to through
all of our 103 Challenges and Case one of the creations you find.



So here is a copy of the card I cased.. 
This Beauty was made by Kirsty on Week #97.



And here is my take on Kirsty's card.



I just love the flower on this card.
I think that is why I chose it!






I thought this was such a fun challenge.
If you would like to play along with us
You can hop on over to
City Crafters Challenge Blog
and get all the details.

Thanks so much to Kirsty, Cheryl and Ros.
You guys are the best!

I also wanted to say Thanks you
To some sweet ladies who sent me such
sweet cards when my kitty past away!


Thanks so much Heather for thinking of me!


Thanks Ros I just love this card and such a cool bag!


Well that's all I have for today. 
I do hope everyone has a happy week... 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Linda
