TARTAN BLOG HOP

Hi Guys,
Well here it is the day has arrived where i can post about my participation in my friend's first hosted bloghop and it is themed as Tartan Day, so, i had to do something that featured tartan, i'm not hot on the subject however, i thought i can't go wrong if i feature something 'scottish' and with some 'tartan' so i hope you like my idea for a project.....................
If you found me from Martha's blog you are hopping in the right direction, if you need to start at the beginning, you should hop over to my friend Gill's blog who is our very humble host HERE and if you wish to know what Tartan Day is all about, visit here for a read http://www.tartandayscotland.com/tartan-day/tartan-day.asp
So here is my offering for the hop, and i hope you all join us in the fun and also a comment, if you have time would be nice, and if you're really feeling generous and you aren't already, i would love you to become a follower of my blog as i also have many other exciting things coming up!!
Also in this blog hop some of the participants will have a secret letter to show you, not all have this though, however, my dear friend Gill has entrusted me with a letter!! so once you have collected all the letters there is to be had, you'll need to unscramble the letters to spell out a word associated with 'Scotland' when you have this word, enter your participation on Mr Linky on Gill's blog HERE but do not leave the word, keep it to yourself, and Gill will pick a winner from the entrants and email the winner asking for the winning word! get the word? win the prize! its as simple as that!!! so get hopping and Good Luck Guys !!!! if you are going in the right direction, you need to go from here to Anita's blog HERE..........so without further ado, here is my secret letter ..................................S.........................................................................................................

  26. Vicky......are you trying to make me cry?!?! Just joking. Of course the image reminds me of my we dog Jack (we lost him just 4 weeks ago). I always used to dress him up in human clothes! He'd just sit there and let me do it!

    Great card. Pamela West always allows you to create fantastic cards, as seen here. Well done.

  43. Hello again, Vicky!

    This card is soooo cute!!! I think I said so in my comments during the hop but I just had to say it again for good measure! I really appreciate your visit to my blog as well as your sage words of kindness. I had already read your profile and bits of your blog so I was indeed aware of your disability. That must have been so stressful to deal with at such a young age. I'm about 16 years your senior so my physical well-being isn't what it once was but, thankfully, I am still able to get around on my own and work (when I have a job! LOL). As for your dear hubby, you should look at it this way... had you been in a different place in your life when you met him, the two of you might not have gotten to where you are now in your relationship. I feel like things happen to us for a reason and sometimes we never know what those reasons are, do we?
    Anyway, I just wanted to drop back by and say thank you for saying all those sweet things about my altered box and that I, too, am happy about our chance encounter! :o)

    Big hugs,
    Anniebee
