I was MIA a LOT longer than I intended to be, but I am back!
To make a long story short Katie and I went to Tennessee- near Nashville. My aunt and uncle live near there and we went out to lend a helping hand and give out a few hugs after my uncle had a series of strokes a few weeks ago. He is recovering slowly but surely and we are happy that he is doing so well and back at home. But my aunt doesn't have much family out there and Katie and I wanted to be there for her.
Before I left I made several cards and had intended to post during my spare time, but there really wasn't much "spare" time at all.
Today and possibly tomorrow though, I will have time to relax and start showing those projects to you.
This first card is very fitting and if it weren't so feminine I would absolutely be sending it to my uncle.
I will have to make another one with this verse for sure! The verse is from a new Verve set I recently bought called "Blue Skies". I have to thank my friend Amy for making a card with this set recently because I totally LOVE it!
The flower stem came from an older Stampin Up set called "The Art of Life ". I knew I held onto that set for some reason! My yellow embellishment tin came in handy to find a matching brad and flower and the ruffled ribbon from my LSS scrap basket was added to a strip of Scor Tape. LOVE that stuff!
Well, I am off to edit some more pics and relax on my couch for the rest of the day!
