ANOTHER BIRDIE TO SHARE!


Hi all!! WHEW!! I have been SLAMMED at work - with the budget crisis in CA, my job has been soooo challenging and I have not been home before 8pm each and every night!! My son is home from college too so I feel bad that I only get a couple of hours with him each night before I become so tired I cannot keep my eyes open!!! I have to say, I really miss blogging, stamping, and scrapping - not much of that has been happening lately and it makes me kind of sad! BUT, I know the work I am doing is really important, especially during these difficult budgetary times!!! So, thanks for being so patient with me and hanging in and visiting - I swear I will catch up this weekend!! I DID have some time last weekend to stamp some and I wanted to share another card I did using some more birdies! Actually, just one birdie but it has quickly become a favorite of mine: it is a new Level Two Hostess set called Wings of Friendship and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! And, the new catty is active now so you can order to your hearts content AND earn this set for your very own!!! I am hoping to put my first big order in this weekend - no time yet, but I have my list ready, LOL!!! Now, I am off to work so I will leave you the recipe for this one!! Thanks again for stopping by - you all really do make my day better!!

Oh, this is soooo pretty Alex! I can't wait to get this set for my own.

That's gotta be tough trying to find a balance with work, family, and stamping. Hopefully, things will settle down soon.
