Hello!!! Come Join the Link-Up Party!

Hello!!!
 ....anyone here!? 
Dear friends, I know it has been a while. You are probably wondering what. is. happening. to this challenge blog!? Or perhaps you have completely moved on and started another chapter in your crafting life? The truth is,...I still am enjoying blogging over "Yes, Virginia.." and just don't have the time to manage this challenge blog. However, I sure miss seeing you here!!!
And that is why we are having an impromptu party!
There will be no guest designers...just you, YOU alone will make this party a SUCCESS!

I want to thank you for sticking around. I am still getting many "likes" over our Facebook page
(809 and counting). Honestly, I thought you guys would just "forget about it"! 
In order to keep this blog alive and well, I am hosting a little link-up party!
Would you like a party? Oh yes, you do! 
A prize? Yes, please!

I am offering a crafting prize (stamps and dies over $50 in value) to one of the random party guests. Please feel free to use the following affiliate links to help me fund this challenge blog.

Here's what you do to join the party:
--->link up a newly created card with a theme of "miss you", "hello"...any types of friendship card.
--->please use the following logo or/and mention that you are playing the link-up party
--->one entry per person please
(edited: sorry....but extra entries will not qualify for the draw and will be deleted)
--->please enter by April 30th, 11:55pm, Eastern Time

As usual, I am sharing a card to kick off the party!
Miss You
Please feel free to use this card as an inspiration (totally optional).
You can create ANYTHING (any style, color combo, new stash, old stuff...anything you desire) to join the party as long as it fits our friendship theme.
