Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday everyone!! I am so looking forward to this weekend! I plan on stamping, stamping and then stamping some more! LOL My only other plan is a date night with my hubby! He wants to go to the drive-in....Iron Man (yuck!) and then Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford ...oh my ;-)) LOL Oh well, there will lots of stamping time!
I just LOVE how this card came out!!! Can you believe it no ribbon! LOL I did have a bit of time with it. My intention was to incorporate more the Ginger Blossom Designer Paper.....I couldn't match up anything that I I ended up with the above! I think it turned out a lot more elegant than I was originally planned. Thanks for looking!!!

Hello :-) I am back!!

Finally, I am back! This month has been extremely hectic, but I believe I am caught up! Thank you so much for prayers, kindness and patience. My dear hubby Gene is doing well, though he will have to go through a bunch of tests the next couple of weeks. Once again thank you so much for your prayers :-)
As some of you may know I work full time at a University so between classes ending, graduation, summer semester and out of town has been keeping my on my toes. After tomorrow I will be back on schedule. *whew*
Stamping related... my best friend is getting married! So I made her 100 invitiations this month and then I committed to my first swap with the Great Swap Girls!! Now that they are done...I should have plenty of stamping time for just me and of course updating my blog:-)
I actually made this card a couple of weeks ago and just now had a chance to upload it! I bought this stamp set last minute...I really do LOVE it!! It is just too cute!! I hope you like it!! Have a great weekend!!

Hey everyone

I just wanted to post a quick update. My DH Gene has been in the hospital and I we are hoping he will be released sometime this weekend. The past couple of weeks have been extremely stressful and I definitely have missed my stamping time:-) I do have a couple of cards done, I just haven't had time to take pics and post them. Hopefully I will be back on track Monday! Thank you for your emails and I will get back with you just as quick as I can. Thank you all for your prayers.
