One World, One Heart

This post is closed to comments.  Winners will be posted and contacted this evening (2-17-11)
Thanks to everyone that came by my blog, feel free to come by anytime.
This OWOH posting willl  remain on top of my blog until Feb. 17, 2011.  Please scroll down for my regular posts.  Or stay and check out OWOH.  A hop for bloggers to visit, connect and make friends with other bloggers (of any kind) from all over the world.
Welcome to my blog on the Oregon Coast.  I have been blogging for a little more than a year and this is where I post my attempts at cards making (and occassionally scrapbooking).
I am an ER nurse (20years) and spent 5 years as a traveling nurse.  This gave me the chance to take literally hundreds of photos.  That was the start of scrapbooking.(had to do something with all those pics)! LOL
As the traveling stopped, cardmaking fill the gap for my creative needs.  I always seem to have had something artistic I was trying to do.  Cardmaking has turned out to be the artistic love of my life.
I don't have any particular style that I prefer to work in.  I love to go blog hopping and try different techniques and styles.  Some stick, some don't but there is a world out there and I want to try as much as I can.  I have been married for almost 30 years, have 2 grown sons-one a pilot and one in school to become a nurse.  My husband is retired and takes wonderful care of me.  When able, we love to hop on our Harleys (motorcycles) and visit all of the places in driving distance that we even think we might enjoy.
Someday, I would also like to retire and be able to travel the world with my husband.  (although, I really, really like the warm, warm tropical places!  LOL) 

Please feel free to browse through my blog (click on the header to go to the latest posting), look at my art and leave comments if interested.  I would love to have you sign up as a follower if my blog is interesting to you, no strings attached (and not required).  I have a group of 6 various cards that I will be giving to one visitor. The only real rule is that you must have an active blog.  I will add another set of 6 cards if we go over another 100 visitors.  Please leave a comment at the end of this posting, including a way to reach you.  I will random draw after this event have the package mailed to the winner the week following the completion.
I will mail anywhere in the world so please enter.......I will be visiting every blog that comments on here, signing on to follow those that truely interest me, and leaving comments for the giveaways! DUH, LOL.

Hi Gale You just visited me in Australia (you know the place, past the Big Pineapple)!!

How lovely to meet you. I enjoyed reading your introduction about yourself (and the rest of your blog). What an interesting life you have. Maybe that travel bug will bring you here to Australia! I live near the beach on the East coast one and a half hours from Sydney. We didn't get a visit from Oprah but we were hoping!

Hi Gale! Thanks for visiting my blog! Your cards are really cute! Oregon Coast = Love. My favorite vacation EVER (not that there were many) was flying to Portland and driving from Astoria to the Redwood Forest in CA down the Oregon Coast and staying in B&B's and Inns along the way. Then driving mid-state up back to Portland. We took an entire week to do it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the coast there. You lucky girl!!

Howdy Gale! I don't think you need a particular style, let's face it actors don't play the same part each time they get a movie role, & if they do they probably aren't that good LOL!! I'm pleased to meet you (I'm Shelle from Sunshine Coast Australia) If you have time (I don't think I've seen you visit, but could be just dazed from dancing around the world LOL) I'd love you to come on over check out my giveaways & comment at my OWOH post too :) oh & please feel free to drop in now and then after OWOH if you're in the bloggersphere :) that'd be cool! Now let's enjoy this hurly burly wonderful One World One Heart EXTRAVAGANZA :) There's lot's more blogs, I feel like I'm in a marathon LOL!! Up, UP & AWAAAAAAY!!

Hi, I tke it from reading OWOH profile that you are still nursing. Wonderful profession if you have the stomach for it. Sorry to say I dont. I love the idea of scrapbooking all the photos of where you have been. I love your cards they are adorable. This blogathon has been a great experience. Thanks for stopping by my blog Blossoms Bloomers and leaving a comment.
