A Flowery Thank You

Wow, can you believe it... I managed to get two cards made this week! That only means I have not had the energy with the heat, to work on sorting out garage items this week.

This card went together real easily using one of my newest Last Impressions template (L9658).

All paper, buttons , rub-on and template are from LI. Lace are just some scraps I had lying around and I added a couple of hat pins, distressed the edges and used Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder for an added touch.

Pink is not my favorite color but I do like how this one came out.

Enjoy your day:) Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

It's Been A Long While...

Oh my, I haven’t posted here in ages. I’m sorry – life has been very busy … I have been working full time and spending my evenings de-cluttering in an attempt to downsize. It is truly amazing how much stuff one accumulates after living in the same house for 25 years.

While away from blogging I have also managed to get one level of the house remodeled (pictures to be posted soon), a much needed sewer redone, and managed to gain some space in and around the house.
Out of guilt I took time out to complete a swap card that I have owed out since May!!!

The card was for a dry embossing swap titled "Birds of a Feather" and uses Lasting Impressions templates, buttons and paper. The saying is stamped using Colorbox country brown ink and Amuse stamp.
I hope you are enjoying your summer. Thanks for the many emails of concern and hanging in there with me.

Thanks for finding my typo Kathy... I had intended to type 25 and not 35 years! Although from the clutter I doubt there is much difference :)
