Well hello there, it's been a while!

Hey y'all!

Wow, it's been almost 3 years since I've posted, 
and so much has happened.

Sadly, my Mom passed away unexpectedly in April last year, and I've been at a loss...trying to recoup from losing her.

In an effort to help with my grief, I've been busy back in my scrap-room, creating cards.  I must admit, it truly is great therapy.  The card above was created for one of my dear friend's birthday 
(she is also a card-creator, so I'm sure she'll appreciate it)!

I hope all of you are doing well, and I'll be hopping over to your blogs to see what you've been creating as well.

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

I just saw your comment on Stacy's blog today and decided to visit. I am so sorry to hear about your mom and pray that God will comfort you each day. Losing a parent is very hard...I know. What wonderful therapy to get back in your scrap-room and start creating cards. This one is beautiful, and I love the dimensional flowers! Beautifully done! Hugs...from a friend and sister in Christ in South Florida!
