When I started my adventure in the blogging world I truly had NO IDEA what I was getting myself into. The posting deadlines (daily for me), the set up, the upkeep, the friends (my favourite part) and the HOURS on the computer. It's a lot of work so I want to thank each and every one of you who has created a blog for me to visit too! I know the work that goes into it.

On that note, I also want to say I appreciate your comments too. If you have left a comment on my blog, I have visited your blog too. Depending on the number of comments I get I don't always get a chance to leave a response on yours but trust me I am there to see your work too. My goal is to cut down on wasted time (boy can I waste time) *lol* and make sure I focus more on commenting on blogs from time to time. Sunday is often that day for me. I also spend a lot of time commenting in the SCS gallery (as of this year anyways *lol*). The long of the short is, I value your time and comments!!!!

Ok, so the point of this post? I am always willing to do a link exchange. If you would like me to add your blog just send me a note. You'll notice that I have separated my "daily dose" blogs from the other blogs I visit. We all have favourites don't we? I would SOOOOOOO spend my days blog surfing if I had the time but of course my blog time competes with the time I play with the kids, do my online teaching job, enjoy family time, stamping, facebooking, answering e-mails...a girl only has so much time to sleep !*smile*

Thank you again for all of your inspiration!!!!

So with all this talk of surfing I figured I would post a mid day's the surfafella card I posted for the BoBunny challenge on CKM. They did a draw for more BoBunny goods for all those that entered . My name wasn't drawn (this time!) but I am still happy with how my card turned out.

I know exactly what you mean. I love your blog and appreciate all the work you put into it. I will add you to my blog list also. I don't do as good a blog as you do, but I do enjoy working on it and sharing the cards I make. Without blogs such as yours, my cards would never get made because you and others like you are my inspiration. Thanks again.

Blogging is a lot of work, but it's also very rewarding. Some days I wonder why I feel the need to post everyday, but then if I go a day without posting I feel so disconnected from my network of wonderful blogging friends! I'm honored to see I'm listed on your Daily Dose list. I somehow lost your blog a while ago when I migrated to Google Reader, but I've found you again and you're now on my Blogs I Stalk list. I've always loved your blog and cards and am having a blast catching back up on your posts.
