Dragon Flies and Buttterflies!

This is a card I did for a challenge that didn't exist...but I thought it did! I really just wanted to say how blessed my life is with my blogging friends. I  never knew when I started this almost a year ago where this would lead. It took me weeks to get up nerve to leave a comment on a blog. That sweet, lady is now a very dear friend. You have each encouraged me and blessed me. You have made me laugh (especially you Amanda) I have hurt when you have been hurt. Some of you I may never get a chance to meet face to face, but some of you I know we will meet someday. On a blog the other day I read that  when we enter a challenge we should each comment on the card that proceeds our entry. I am going to start doing that and I hope each of you will consider doing the same. Here is a quote from Mother Teresa that would be good for all of us to live by:
"Let no one ever come to you
without leaving better and happier.
Be the living expression of God's kindness;
kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes,
kindness in your smile."
~Mother Teresa
Blessings to each of you!

What a fabulous idea to comment on the card before you. I will definitely be doing that from now on. It is always so very nice to receive a comment from any one of the generous array of 'blogging' friends. Every single comment makes me smile and if I can make someone else smile for a moment - then its worth it!
A challenge that didn't exist! Where you dreaming? LOL. You have made this image really 'pop' - terrific card. Hugs Jenny B x (PS: you made me smile and giggle today - thank you)

I am going to take the making you laugh comment as a compliment! I feel the same way you do, just can't get over how many wonderful people I have met thru blogging and a year ago I barely knew what a blog was. I will try to do the comment thing too cause I think it is a wonderful idea and love the sentiment. Hugs!

What a sweet card you've created with that image... I love your idea of making a comment & have been doing that myself for quite awhile now. I don't always pick the person above me but try to choose someone who enjoys making a comment on the blogs. I've "met" many wonderful ladies that way & it's such a great way to be inspired by what others do. I found you by just clicking on your sweet face on a blog I saw just because you looked so nice. It was one of the best things I've done since starting my blog.
