A Milestone Celebration - 400 Followers

Hi there!  It's me again!  I'm back with a second post today and this one is very special!  I have reached 400 followers on my blog!  My 400th follower, Larisa, introduced herself to me yesterday!  I'd like to welcome my newest followers and say a huge thank you to those that have been around awhile! You all give me so much inspiration and encouragement!  It makes it fun to share here and I always look forward to your visits!  I am planning to put together a nice blog candy to celebrate reaching over 400 followers and my upcoming 2-year blogaversary, so stay tuned for that!

In the meantime, to help me celebrate right now, Paulette, from Create With TLC, has generously offered a very special freebie for me to share with all of you!    To grab your freebie, simply click on the image, then right click and "save picture as" to your own computer.

Here is the gorgeous freebie from Paulette:
Here is a card I made using it:


My card base and mats are SU Bordering Blue and the patterned paper is from the Prima Fairy Belle 6x6 pad.  I printed the image and then cut it out with my Cameo. I colored it with my Copics, then added some Star Dust Stickles to the baby fairy's wings and the dragonfly and Crystal Stickles to the stars in the sky.  The sentiment is also from Create With TLC.  The two beautiful filigree corners were a gift in my birthday card from my friend, Olga.  Thanks, Olga!  I've been hoarding them until now!  A few mauve pearls from my stash finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by and for helping me reach this milestone!  Be sure to go over to the Create With TLC blog and thank Paulette for this and all the other wonderful freebies she shares with us every day! Don't forget to sign up to follow Paulette, too!  A big thank you from me, Paulette, for helping celebrate my 400-follower milestone!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you soon!
