Inventory Challenge #52





Good morning everyone. Gosh, this has been a magnificent week of beautiful weather.
I know this cannot continue, but I'm definitely enjoying it while it lasts!

Today Danielle and I, along with Rene, invite you to a very special challenge. It has been a whole year since we began this journey and the question is ......What does it mean to me???? Well, first and foremost, it means friendship and a common goal....reduce our inventory! Have I achieved that goal???? Somewhat! My craft room is still bursting at the seams and it's going to take a lot of cards to make a difference. I am, however, recommitting to this goal. Along the way, I have been so lucky and forged some wonderful friendships.
In honor of my friends, I have created a card today using only items gifted to me by my friends. I am so honored and grateful to have you in my life!!!!
I am immensely grateful to all the wonderful people who take the time to visit my blog. Thank you all so much.....LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!

Now, I would like to invite you to visit my dear friends and teammates, DANIELLE
and RENE. I know they will have something special to share with you. Hugs!
Dearest Sandy, we will miss you....I hope you will continue to check in with us.

  4. Hello Christina, such a lovely way to "put" your friends together on a card, we do blend very well! Your Tilda is magnificiently colored, and all the elements make a perfect unity. My room is also full, however,I don't know if I would live otherwise, I do enjoy having lots of choices! I said friendship was directly linked to this challenge, this friday rendez-vous has become a must in my life, so dear to me. Hugs my dear friend, and have a lovely day.

  35. I am so excited Christina, because I finally get a chance to sit down and catch up with all the blog posts I've been missed lately. Beautiful and cute cards. How sweet using the autumn scheme and even the embellishments are using the same theme coloring too. Looks so cute :o)
    I agreed with you that through blogging and crafting, there are so many friendship developed with other crafters that share the same interest. I am so glad I started a blog and of course so glad that we met too :o)
