Bonhomie Blog Candy!

Bonhomie: noun \ˌbä-nə-ˈmē, - a feeling of friendliness among a group of people.  

Hi everyone!  I know you are probably wondering about my choice of words in the title but as you read on, you will see it is perfect for my post today!

On Christmas Eve my new neighbor came over to introduce herself AND brought a sweet gift of homemade hot cocoa!  Now, how did she know I love hot chocolate!!  We live in a rural area so she had a little ways to walk and that made her gift extra sweet.  I will be returning the favor with this gorgeous card and a homemade creation of my own- some delectable cookies!

I wanted a bright and cheery card so I used this beautiful paper from the My Mind's Eye 'Indie Chic Ginger' line.  Since I am also entering this into the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club, all of the stamps and dies are from My Favorite Things!  Below is the sketch for this week and you can see I turned it to fit my sentiment.  I also added some bling (of course) and a sweet little button created from the MFT Hexagon die and a bit of golden twine.

The inside features more of these versatile hexagons and a nice big space for me to write my gratitude for such a neighborly gesture! It's always such a relief to know your neighbors are friendly and I hope this is a relationship that flourishes!

Now on to my next Thank You.  This is my 100th post as a blogger!  It has had its highs and lows (fellow bloggers know...) but has been such a creative outlet for me and an inspiration to continually create and find new ways to show my love of this craft.  I want to thank all of my followers; The 'oldies' that have been with me for a while and the 'newbies' that have just started to follow my fabulous blog :) As a small token of my gratitude, I have a little blog candy to give away just in time for Valentine's Day!  All you have to do is be a follower (sign up today!) and leave me a comment on this post.  That's it!  The deadline is Sunday, January 13th and I will pick one lucky reader on the 14th to win this lovely little prize!

Here are the products used for this project:
