Sad Blog News

I have given this decision much thought and consideration...but due to so much going on in my life at this time...I have decided to give up my Win A Free Card blog at this time... I am hoping that in the future I will get to begin it again.... maybe God is just sending me in a different direction at this time.

I will however keep my regular card blog and plan on posting there on a regular basis...Please visit me  there by clicking 

A special Thank You to all who have supported me in this for the last 100 week... I have so enjoyed mailing my cards literally all over the world... hugs to each and every one of you.

You are an AMAZING inspiration and have more talent in your pinky then I have in my whole body. Take care of you and your loved ones, and come back when this season of your life passes! You will be missed!

Alyssa M said...


We will miss your cards so, God has given you such a spectacular, singular talent! But, one must always trust in the decisions the Lord makes for us, and if he is sending you another direction, it is for a purpose, so walk with confidence in that direction!

Never stop crafting, at least for yourself --

I hope you still share cards with us on the MB when you can.

God Bless,

Beth said...

As hard as it was for you to make this decision, I'm sure that God has chosen for you to start a new chapter in your life that will take where you need to go most. I know you will do it well, cuz that's how you do things. OR, maybe you just need to recharge your creative batteries a little in the mean time with a little less on your plate. I know you will still amaze us with your creations & I will continue to look forward to those.

God Bless & take care!

Laura Lee said...

Looking forward to seeing all your creations on your other blog...

Military pilot who had sex with an 11 year old boy when he was 17!!!

And how long did he masterbate and think about having sex with boys? In boot camp? Into his flight training?

"This person's disturbed." In fact.
You should have seen what he did to his younger brothers from age 5-8.
His peers have interesting things to say about him as well.

I'm impressed, I have to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that's both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the difficulty is something that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about.
