My 100th card in 100 days!



I did it friends!! Thank you so much for all your pom pom waving - rah rah rah - fun filled support.  I did it : ) I created 100 cards in 100 days!

This interesting little card started out looking like this:



I purchased a boxed set of eight cards and matching envelopes by Anna Griffin, Inc. in about 2007.  I thought it was a cute design and would make a nice card base - I just never got around to making a card with it until now.  This House Mouse image seems to have been made for it huh? LOL

As my challenge has come to a close I am happy because I know that it does not mean I stop making cards! whew!! On the contrary all the inspiration I've gotten from visiting all your blogs has made me want to make MORE! It has really been fun.  I have had over 2500 new page views since I began my challenge in April and exactly doubled my followers from 42 to 84! : ) Those are the statistic but the best gain has been the sweet friendships that budded and bloomed during this challenge and hopefully will continue to grow. 

I created this card for you, friends, and it is oh so true:

 Life is so sweet with friends like you! 



Tomorrow I will draw the winning name for my blog candy.  All of the comments have been tallied and identified by unique numbers.  I will use a random number generator to select the winning comment.

You ladies are the BEST in blogland!! Thank you for your friendship - it means the world to me!

BIG (((Hugs)))
Patti

Congratulations, Patti! I had no doubt that you would finish your personal challenge! What an inspiration you are! I don't know how you made so many thoughtful, awesomely designed, and impeccably executed cards AND managed to post them all AND visited and commented on our blogs!!! (_Please tell me the secret word to prove you're not a machine!!_)

Your stats will continue to grow by heaps and bounds and I'll be so happy to say "I knew you when" as more and more card artists (and design teams) find you and are inspired by you!!

Way to go!! Hugs, Darnell
