"Well, Here She Is..."

...my postcard entry
which started me on my road to blogdom,
just 1 year ago...February 15, 2008!
I felt it important to post "her" again here today,
...in this most honored place,
as part of a very
special
Cactus Monday celebration!
Special?
...Did she just say "Special Cactus Monday"???
Yep, I sure did...
Why so special, you might ask?
Well, how about a 1st Blogiversary celebration
G-I-V-E-A-W-A-Y!!!
to spread a bit of cactus cheer and good will
around bloggyland!?!
Sooo...
...simply leave a comment here
by midnight next Sunday night February 22,
and
I will draw two lucky names to receive
one of the postcards pictured above
OOOH! Also,
Be sure I can get a hold of you via your blog or email
in case your name is drawn.
WooHoo!
This should be great fun!
Psssst...More fun Blogiversary goodies are planned...
stay tuned! :)

Have a Happy Cactus Monday All!

"Each day offers us the gift of being
a special occasion
if we can simply learn that as well as giving
it is blessed to receive
with grace and a grateful heart."

Congratulations on your anniversary! I've only begun this blogging thing and there's still so much I have to learn about it! 1 year feels so far away!

Anyway, very glad to have found and met you - both here and on flickr! I find your work and words inspiring!

Can't believe you've been a blogger less time than me - by one month. Gorgeous postcard you did for Anita's exchange. Whats so special about your posts are the lovely quotations that go so well with the artwork. Can I be added to the pile for the Arizona cactus postcard draw please, as I would feel so honoured to have a piece of your special artwork in my study/studio.

Dear Margaret, I want to wish you a Happy Blogaversary. A wonderful milestone. I am so glad I have "met" you through your blog. I so enjoy your posts. I have learned so much and received so much encouragement here. I am constantly amazed how you can find quotes that go so well with your art. A real treat to read and visualize through your art.

What a great idea with your giveaway...and congratulations on all your posts. All of your work is very inspiring to me...both your watercolor spreads and your zentangle inspired doodles. You're very creative. I look forward to seeing your new work each day. I love the colors in your Arizona cactus paintings.

Congratulations on this first Blogiversary!
Way to go... that is a lot of hard work and you have done a fabulous job in every sense.
These postcards are keepers, I hope I'm one of the lucky ones... it's a joy to just see them. The Anita Davis image is outstanding, absolutely stunning.

Margaret there is something I have to wholeheartedly Thank You for. Your wonderful regular comments and the very warm welcome you gave me upon joining the Cactus Monday Group, I was touched and it sure made things easier in my mind.

Thanks so much and hurray for WATER-BLOSSOMS!
