Carson's Creations 3 Year Blogaversary

Welcome to the 3 Year Celebration for Carson's Creations. 

 If you've just come from Cheryl's blog, you are in the right place!  If you just came across the hop, please start at the beginning over at Carson's Creations.

I was thrilled when Georgiana asked me to participate in her hop!  When I first started my blog, G had already been out there sharing her fabulous creations.  She was one of my first followers and was kind enough to visit me regularly.  She's been encouraging and supportive, and has helped me navigate through situations when I've been "stuck."  There are probably many of you out there who have similar stories to share about Georgiana, and I'm sure glad I'm one that can call her my crafty friend.  Thanks, G, for including me in your Hop!

Now to my card.  Georgiana challenged us to think in terms of "3's".

3 balloons cut from Create a Critter, p30
