The Stars Align.......



1. I love Susan Raihala's blog, Simplicity.
2. I love red.
3. I love to read.


When Susan had a 10 day Rainbow Mojo giveaway recently, I had to enter on Day 8. It was red day and the comments pertained to favorite books and authors. I am delighted to report the stars aligned and I won! Susan sent me an envelope full of red ribbon, red accessories, red flowers and red sparkles.


If you have never been to Simplicity - go now - I'll wait...... Susan has an artist's eye and a wonderful clean and simple style. She also has an endearing fondness for bling. I promised her a thank you card made with some of her goodies and here it is. I tried to keep it clean and simple and I added some of the splashy bling she sent me. Unfortunately the envelope with her return address on it was recycled before I copied it - so Susan - this one's for you!
