SEW much to thank y'all for!...

Hey everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I've had the best few days hanging out with friends, DH, and kids and also I'm "SEW" excited to be hanging out on the UNITY blog today.   Do you know that this is actually my first Tuesday post on the UNITY BLOG as a full time DT member since I started back in January?   It's my turn, heehee...finally!

Today is also Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge so be sure to check out the rest of the Muses and see their takes on this week's sketch, MTSC69: (links are on my sidebar and don't forget to stop by the AMAZING Debbie Olson, too-our April Guest Muse!)

I have to say that I'm just floored at the little (well, not so little!) community we have here in the blogging world and especially surrounding the stamp companies I am fortunate enough to be a part of.   It's amazing to me to see all of you guys come together to support us and share in just as much excitement as we do each month when new releases or kits come out...contests, blog hops...ALL of it!
..

I think the sentiment (that and image from the UNITY APRIL KOTM :) is totally sweet, don't you?   This kit is PACKED with super cute images and hey, you guys probably know that I have a little bit of an obsession with sewing on cards, LOL...so when I saw this kit I was totally head over bobbin!

It's such a sweet reminder of how we as friends, always "pull each other through", isn't it?   I have made so many wonderful friends through getting to know this team and also a lot of you guys, too just from being a part of Unity and I can't thank Ang enough for giving me that opportunity and YOU all for accepting me.  What a fabulous feeling!  Good times, my friends, good times!

Thanks for letting me come by and chat today!  I'll talk to you all soon, but for now, I'll leave you with this warm and fuzzy:
