Hi, There!
This is a first ever for me and I am very excited to say that I have been asked to be a Guest Designer over at 613 Avenue Create for the celebration of their one year blogaversary!  I want to say thank you to Chana and Kathi for giving me this wonderful opportunity to have my work showcased.  You have a great neighborhood and I love visiting everyone on Avenue 613!

To my followers, please go check out their Block Party at 613 Avenue Create and join in the fun and lets help Chana and Kathi go beyond their 500 count of followers!!  Just go and follow the instructions to be part of the festivities and have a chance to win some great prizes!!

There are many great sponsors for this event but I am using a digital image from the sponsor  A Day For Daises and the image  is called A Braid in My Hair and you can find it here.  Now this is rather unique, as my first digital stamp bought was with ADFD so it only goes to show that I am keeping with the "firsts" for me for the New Year!

Hope you join in on the fun and here is my card to celebrate!
