Congratulations are the theme of the day!  I wanted to write up a quick post to congratulate the winner of our June Blog Hop.  As you know, each blog in the hop was to select a winner from among the comments to award a fun prize.  My giveaway was this fun Vintage Mickey Bag, which I’ve stuffed with an assortment of goodies, a sample of which is seen here.

Thanks for all your comments, and I do hope you enjoyed the hop project this month.  We had some great suggestions for our July hop.  We’ll discuss those over the next few weeks, so check back here on July 15th to see which topic we chose! 

In the mean time, Congratulations to

Marion Corts-Locy! 

You are the lucky winner from my blog.  Email me at to make arrangements to receive your prize!  If we do not hear from you within 7 days, we will contact another random person who qualifies.

So while I was sifting through some of my projects and trying to decide what would be appropriate for the occasion, I stumbled across this card.  It was a last-minute graduation card I sent to a lovely young lady last year.

What is neat about this card is what I used to make it.  The quote and the background with the bird on it were actually cards from a stack of journaling prompts I bought for use in my art journal.  Journaling cards are a very quick and often very pretty way to assemble a card, and they often have poems, sentiments, or quotes that are perfect for your occasion. 

That’s it for today!  Congrats again to our winner, and thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s blog hop!
