CSS Alumni June 24 Blog Hop

I never had time to play with the CSS Team over at Stamp TV in the past, but I can now! What's even more fun is I am the FIRST [instead of last] blog you start with! [Thanks Carolina!] This is an amazing talented team of stampers and I am thrilled to get back into it!  This hop is dedicated to focusing on a sentiment.  I used the new release from GKD illustrated by Melanie Meunchinger, Border Bling.  I adore the way you can use liquid pearls on her dots, it just adds so much to the card!!
Now, keep going, you will stop at Sharri Seffens blog next, and just keep going to see more gorgeousness!
I want to thank the girls for letting me join back in -- I have been remiss~~ hopefully I will do better in participating in future hops!! 
Thanks for stopping by - enjoy hopping~
