Let's Catch Up!

     Hi everyone!  It been a bit since I have posted.  I assume you are expecting a card, so here goes.  This was made from mostly items I found during my recent craft room purge.  Scraps, bits, digi's, and stamped images.  I made a retirement card for my stash.  Had to get my feet wet some how.  I find it hard to get back into stamping once I take a break, how about you?

     The dies I used are my new seaweed die from Gina Marie and my stitched rectangles from MFT.  I used a new sequins assortment from Little Things from Lucy's Cards.  I was inspired by the glitz you see when the sand is dry on the beach.

     The reason I was absent is due to a makeover in my craft room.  It was a rough few weeks of trying to decide what stays and what goes.  Only thing that made it easier is that I donated to an adult daycare so they can be creative.  I am pleased and my DD and DH deserve all the credit in the world for pushing me along.

      I also want to update on my Jessie Girl and her surgery, since everyone was very kind and asking about her.  She is still wearing a blow up tube around her neck, since she is is being stubborn and insists she is going to lick if we remove it.  Just a tiny spot yet and a good bath will be wonderful for all concerned... LOL....phew!  She is as sick of this as we are.

     Thanks for stopping by and I promise to be a little more regular with posts!  Also, happy first day of fall!

Hi Mary Anne! So good to see you back to blogging! Love, love, love this card! Those sandpipers are colored beautifully and that sentiment goes great on this card! I am loving those stitched dies too! Thanks for the update on Jessie girl. She has been on my mind everyday! Hope she continues to heal! Can't say I blame you all on the subject of the "cone of shame". Those things are a pain but I understand why they are needed. Take care and a huge hug for Jessie. TFS and have a great day!!! :)
