What a Day!!!!

I had such a fabulous day today!!!!! It started when Mothermark (Cindy aka Muddermark) posted ME, yes ME, as the Featured Stamper on SCS for today. You could have tipped me over with a feather (and with this body that would not normally be possible). I was so honored but at the same time a little shy about the whole thing. However, I got up this morn and started reading comments in the thread, kind descriptions on cards, and started to truly enjoy the experience.....and I never looked back again. What a superb community of stampers at SCS.....they all made me feel so loved and blessed today!!! Thanks, my friends and fellow stampers. You have truly enabled me for many days, weeks, months, years to come. LOL!!!

I will never be able to listen to Elton John without a giggle ever again. For those of you who did not read Muddermark's little diddy, JOJOT AND THE is just the cutest!!! There were just so many things that made the day special....the use of my fav color combo of red, black, and white......peggysue's use of lots of glitter.......Muddermark's Elton John glasses.......I am just blown away by the kindness and gentle ribbing of friends.

Anyhoo......I did not case myself today.......however......a while back I had played around with some Rita Marie stamps for my Creative Design Boutique design team work and had planned to upload them gradually during August. Well, this month has flown by and I still have three to share, so here is one of them. This one used images from a set called FUNKY FLORALS.

Thanks for a wonderful day!! I was so honored by each and every stamper who took the time to play along today. Bless you all!!!!!

You are such a sweetie and well admired and loved, my friend. I also got a huge kick out of Cindy's JoJot and the Sets theme. What a corker she is!
I am so glad you enjoyed your special day as Featured Stamper, and I'm sure it'll continue on throughout the week for those who couldn't play today. I think I'll just start making it easy on myself and case you all the time!
You've used one of my favorite color combos here. Actually, I used it on a card I made this weekend to be posted to my blog on Wednesday. Beautiful card, JoJo!
Hugs and, again, Congratulations! So many good things happening to a wonderful person...YOU!

Yeah for you Joanne!!!! Congratulations, and yes, so very well deserved. I am just finding out about all of this as we had an all weekend internet outage! I tell ya, when something like this happens (the outage ;P) you realize how much time you actually spend on the computer. Your cards are always so breathtaking. It shows that you are not afraid of color at all. I need to hang with you a little ;P. Hugs, Sabrina
