Hi all! No, I have not forgotten you......BUT, I did injure my knee very badly and have spent the last week on a cane and now will be going in to determine if I will be needing surgery to repair the tear I seem to have in my knee that is causing me so much pain.  I am on complete "chair rest" with my knee propped up, so not much going on here in the way of stamping :-(  I seem to have had a bad run of luck lately with illness, injuries, etc. but I am hoping to be back in the swing of things very soon and to share some fun spring projects with you!  Meanwhile, I would like to share this Easter card I made recently for in a workshop with a set from the Occasions Mini called Easter Blossoms.  Very pretty set, I love it! And, I think it can be used for much more than just Easter!! I matched the beautiful stamped flowers with the Springtime Vintage Designer paper, also found in the Mini - I think this is my ultimate favorite paper EVAH!!! I go back to it again and again! I colored the image with my stampin' write markers in the same colors found in the paper - Regal Rose, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive.  Aren't they purdy together??  I also used the yummy Rich Razzleberry taffeta ribbon, soooooo pretty!  I kept the card pretty simple as I normally do for a workshop card BUT I do think this card is worthy, don't you??! It was fun to make, and it is now in an envie ready to be mailed :-)  If you like the products you see here, you can order them in my online store or contact me and place an order!  Thanks for hanging in with me - I am hoping to become more regular at posting again now that I have gotten everyone healthy again and now I am working on doing the same for me! Take care and have a wonderful day - and, if you can, STAMP!!!
