Stars and Hearts Birthday

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I'm a little late this morning with today's card. I'm going to take a moment here to digress from the regularly scheduled program and just have a little chat about blogging for a moment. I would just like to know if there are any of you out there who are running blogs (crafting blogs or otherwise) who are struggling as much as I am with website traffic?! Because apparently Blogger Stats are just plain out and out wrong (which sucked the wind right out of my sails....) and according to Google Analytics NOBODY is visiting my blog, which means I'm pretty much talking to myself right now.. This is a real struggle for me to the point where I'm finding myself faced YET AGAIN with the decision of whether or not to continue blogging. I could go on and on; but for now I'd just like to know if there are others out there who are struggling as well? What can we do to help each other?! Leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you.

For now, we'll just keep plugging along with today's card. I made a simple birthday card...yes, I know...another one! By now, I'm sure you've seen the card and are ready to move on with the rest of your day, so I'm going to skip the description and design notes and just give you a quick "recipe" breakdown:

Paper: SSS Black, PTI Tropical Teal, Hawaiian Shores
Stamps: Hero Arts "Year Round" 
Sentiment: K & Co Stickers
Ink: Distress Ink Fired Brick
Diecuts: SSS Wafer thin circle dies, Spellbinders Nestablilites Petite scalloped circles
Extras: Signo White Gel pen, silver stickles, Wink of Stella clear glitter pen 

Have a great day and I will be back again on Friday!

Such a cute card! Love the colors! I feel your pain with the whole blogging thing! I don't know where blogger gets their stats, but they have been all over the place lately. I will continue to blog - because I enjoy it, and for DT commitments - but it is hard when you think you may be only talking to yourself!
