Cristi was the one who introduced me to the scrap world and blog world. She talked me into buying my Expression. What carts to buy, where to find deals… I can keep going and going. She's an AMAZING friend and a wonderful mother and wife! Love you girl! This is for you!

What a beautiful card Dorcas!!! It is beautiful! As you know, I LOVE your work and am always inspired by your creations....

I have to say that I really loved the concept of Cristi's place cards that she came up with for the Snowy Winter Hop. Something that can be used year round, just changing out the tags the fit the occasion! Brilliant!!


Happy Birthday Cristi! Wishing you a day filled with love and happiness!

Happy Birthday, Christi! I hope you had a wonderful day!

It's hard to pick just one card that is my favorite but I think I remember Christi making some baby shower invitations that were really cute.

Dorcas, your card is beautiful and I know Christi must have loved it!

Happy Belated Birthday Christi. It seems like you and Dorcas had a great time together. And the friendship you two have is beautiful. The card itself is really pretty and it seems to incorporate Dorcas and your style.
As for my gave project, one of them is the word book you made for your husband a while back. It inspired me to create one for my sister. I haven't yet, lol, but I will.
