Blue Monday - Blue Note Cards

Hello. It's Blue Monday! I'm so glad you decided to join in the fun.

To participate: just click here for BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS.

Visit other Blue Monday participants by clicking on their links.
That's what makes Blue Monday fun. I ❤ comments, and appreciate everyone who leaves one for me.

Look what came in my mail! Denise Marie from Denise Marie Bloomin had a "blog-a-versary celebration door prize," and I won! She made note cards in Blue brown, and white just for me! They're made with such care and details: hand stamped, touches of ribbon, and 3-D parts. Denise Marie is a handy lady. She not only crafts, but she finds great buys that she shares on her blog.

Six Blue items were enclosed:
  1. With Gratitude card with envelope
  2. A Very Happy Birthday card with envelope
  3. Thank you Very Much card with envelope
  4. With Sympathy card with envelope
  5. Best Wishes tag
  6. A personal note from Denise Marie

I'm giving you a close-up of her whimsical address label on the outside of the package. The top of the label is so cute. Just look at that darling Blue mailbox on the address label.

Here's the little note from Denise Marie. Notice in the lower right, she's written, "Keep Smiling."

I turned the card over so that you can read the message, it says,
You've blessed me w/your meme. I had fun making these for you.
If I can find ANY blue I gotta tag in! LOL
Bloggie Love,
Denise Marie"

What a special Blue treat! Thank you, Denise Marie; I'll sure enjoy using these.

Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Sally, Your blues are so pretty! I did a blue post for Blue Monday, but for some reason I can't link to your blog. Normally it would say something like, "your next" after the last #. I registered with Mr Linky, but it's not telling me how to join your post. Any ideas?
