Hi all! Sorry I took such a long absence, but I really needed to step back and slow things back down a little as I was pushing myself too hard, and causing my recovery to take a step in the wrong direction! Soooo, I have been sleeping, reading, and well, resting, and actually feel so much better than I did this time last week! In fact, I stamped a bunch of cards this weekend and I am excited to get to share them with you this week!! Here is the first one - I really hope you like it, I am trying to find my mojo again! Funny how you can step away from stamping for just a little bit and it feels like you have to start all over again! But, I am getting my groove back slowly but surely and will go back for another checkup on Wednesday to hopefully hear that I am allowed to drive again. I miss being out and about, but I understand the need now for all the rest - it has definitely helped!! I am also looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to, I really miss it, and feel so out of the loop - LOL! Blog hopping is definitely something I plan on doing tonight! So, on to the card: I used my stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral, which I think is beautiful! I love the flowers, there is so much you can do with them! I also decided to break open my new dp from the Spring Occasions mini - the paper is uber yummy, I just love the colors in this paper. And, it is available to order come April 1st, so start making that list! I also cut out my flowers, water colored them, popped them up, and using versamark and Iridescent Ice, added some bling to them. They really sparkle IRL! I will leave you with the recipe and will be back on Wednesday morning with another card! Smooches, all!
