A Magpie says Thank You

I've been blogging for nearly two months now and I don't think I've ever had so much fun! It's thanks to Leandra Franich from Paper Artsy that I got into this so I'd like to say a special 'thank you' to her! She got me hooked on craft with her fantastic products and then she got me blogging! I'm grateful, but I'm not so sure about how the rest of the family feel about my addiction!
This is also a special post to say a huge 'thank you' to those people who have stopped by over the last two months and a special thank you to those who are following me. It really means a lot to me to have your friendly support. Thank you for sharing what you create and for dropping by to look in the Magpie's Nest. Hello to the wondrous Helen with all her creative energy, who I think was my first follower back in April; to my lovely magpie cousin Dianne from Canada; to Carmen who shares my love of black and white spooky movies and who has been helping me with email problems; to Toni who just joined and who I would love to swap ATCs with but I can't find a way of emailing her; to May who sends inspiring comments; to Chris and Natty who I'd like to get to know better; Sandy whose K for Kremlin scrap-book page really knocked my socks off; the talented Janet who is part of ARC hosted by the talented Darcy; Lin who creates such beautiful things; Kezzy whose beautiful work radiates such enthusiasm and joy; Kristin at Retro Cafe Art Gallery who has honoured me with her support and encouragement; Jez who creates really original art-work; the wonderful creative Mo at Almo crafts who happened by Magpieheaven in the earliest days has been so encouraging and who introduced me to WOYWW - of course many, many thanks to Julia Dunnit who runs that terrific blog hop - and Mary from Alabama. Thank you too the Twitter followers who create lovely work and drop by to share a love of crafting and the WOYWW ladies who have agreed to swap ATCs with me. Thanks to those who added me to their Google circles! You've made Blogland an enchanted place. Thank you. Here is a 'thank you' card from Magpieheaven for everyone who stops or stopped by, all the comments and the wonderfully helpful blogging and photography hints you've given over the last two months.

Open it up and the bird inside is to express the joy it has given me to share with all of you! You've given me a chance to spread my wings and fly free as a bird!
 Hope you will too!
