A Toast To Life Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to the A Toast To Life blog hop. If you've come from Lina's blog, then you're in the right place. If you've just come across the hop and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Liz's blog.

The purpose of this hop is to make a toast to life by creating anything that represents the best things in our life. I'd have to say the best things in my life would be my family, my friends, blogging, and of course my boyfriend, who is also my best friend. Rather than making a project for each aspect of my life that I would like to toast, I decided to make a thank you card to express my gratitude for all of them.

This card is also being entered in this week's sketch challenge over at The Perfect Sentiment. 

I'd like to say thank you to my family for always being there for me and for always supporting whatever it is I want to do.

I'd like to thank my friends for being there for me when I need someone to vent to, and for always putting a smile on my face when I need some cheering up.

I'd like to thank my boyfriend for always, always being there for me and for putting up with me even on my worst days. He is always so supportive and encouraging and I can go to him with anything. 

And last, but most certainly not least, I'd like to thank all of the friends I've made since I started my blog this past summer. If it wasn't for your kind words and support, I wouldn't be here posting this today. Thank you for always answering my silly, amateur craft questions and for always finding something nice to say about my work, even when it may not be my best. Thank you to all my followers who have supported me in one or another, it is your encouragement and kind words that allow me to want to keep blogging. 

And now for the fun part of the hop... blog candy! :) I'll be giving away the following crafty goodies:

- 10 sheets of assorted mat stack papers
- 30 sheets of assorted 6 x 6 papers
- 2 rubber stamps
- 1 set of bling by Studio G
- 1 spool of blue ribbon
