Bye Bye Google Reader

Ok, so I am a little late in getting around to this. I know, I think it is purely denial, I mean why would google actually get rid of google reader?!?!?

Let me repeat, Google Reader is going away :-(

Yes, it is true and if I don't get my act together, you won't be able to follow me after July 1st

Please make sure that whichever reader you decide on, you follow my blog:  
     Quilling, Art and Expression (

You may have noticed I added a new icon / link to allow you to easily follow via BlogLovin' .... The truth is that I'm not sure which I like better, BlogLovin or Feedly, so why did I add the BlogLovin' link you may ask? There was a super easy to follow link that added the code to my blog for me - you know, the easier the better and you cannot get easier than that.

My friends, I hope that you are able to convert over (I actually have an account with both) and I'll see you on the other side of no more google reader - lol :-)

One last thing.... If you subscribe via email you shouldn't have to do anything, and I haven't changed anything else.

Have a WONDERFUL day!

Birthday Card and some Linky Parties

Antonella Sweet Stampin Challenge Make It Monday Birthday Card Mariannes Creatables

The weather can't decide what it wants to do these days, it is rainy, hot, cold, dry, you name it.

I made this birthday card for a co-worker whose birthday happened to fall on a business trip we took recently.  I'm glad I took a picture of it before our trip because it didn't travel well, it was a wee bit squished when we arrived - lol.

While I was contemplating what to make, I made my rounds around blog-land and decided to follow the sketch from this weeks Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog to inspire my card.

So what do you think of my interpretation of this sketch? To make it more fun, I decided to try some colors I don't use very often and added some fun dies and followed my inspiration muse. I added the Pink "ribbon"  to soften up the card.

I am participating in the following challenges:

I used my Marianne Designs - Creatables Die on this card because I hadn't used them before :-)

I hope you have a wonderful day!
