Happy Sunday, everyone!!!  Hope all's well!

And what a pleasant surprise to see I have a couple more NEW FOLLOWERS!!!  How wonderful, and how wonderful to have you!  I've already tried to find several of you to personally thank you for joining my family of friends , however, I couldn't locate all of you.  If you have blogs, please leave me your blog address and/or name.  If you don't have blogs, leave me a comment -- I love comments!  I'll always respond to you as soon as I can.

Yes, I've had a fairly busy weekend!  I spent time visiting with some senior relatives, got in some much needed household duties, and I've been around to visit and see of your wonderful projects; now I'm ready to play!  Sad to say I "ditched" church today -- shame on me!!!

Right now I'm here to say it's always an honor when you've did something that inspires someone else to do it.  AND, it's always a pleasant surprise when they out-do themselves and you doing it...lol!!!  Two very dear blogging family-fiiends were inspired by projects I'd recently completed, so they recreated them and totally did fabulous jobs!!!  You've got to check them out!

My friend Brenda of "Creativity Is Only a State of Mind" did this shaped card:

Here is a direct link to Brenda's blog to check out additional photos:  http://createbyburffrau.blogspot.com/2011/08/brilliant-shaped-card.html.  Also, maybe several months ago, Brenda made my soap recipe I did for one of the blog hops, and she called it the "Best Soap Ever".   Thank you, Brenda!  I am so honored!

Another project I'd done inspired Monique of "Unique Monique Creating" to design this beautiful triple easel card -- with a place for photos!!!:

Monique also has pictures showing each individual card on her easel card.  You can find Monique's project page by clicking on this direct link:  http://www.uniquemoniquecreating.com/2011/08/i-made-easel-card.html.  You really have to see what she did with this easel card!!!  Soooo beautiful!

If you haven't visited either of these ladies, they're "must-haves". 

Thank you, ladies for honoring me with your wonderful talent!!!  Your recreations are outstanding!  And, I wanted to pass on the love!!!

Now I'm off to do some playing!  Thanks all for stopping by, I love you, hugs..., and

I'll be seeing you!

Thanks for sharing. I made a card using an image a little similar to the one Brenda used but mine did not turn out nearly as pretty. Glad to see other people doing the same thing.

Everything looks beautiful. Thanks for sharing!!!
