Hello my faithful blog followers! I am so sorry it has been so long since my last post. We got back from Disneyland late Saturday night (a week ago) safe and sound. Our son had gotten a bad case of allergies while in California and was not feeling well all the way home but he made it. We got home, threw our stuff on the kitchen floor and said good night! We were exhausted!! Two hours later I woke up and started vomiting (among other things) and ended up being sick the entire rest of the weekend! My husband also got sick later on Sunday. It was awful!! I took the day off on Monday and still didn't feel very well on Tuesday but went back to school anyway. Nick is doing much better since being home. People are telling me that his allergies could have been brought on by the poor air quality. Anyway, we are all better but NONE of the things on my "to-do" list got done that I had planned for last Sunday. I did no laundry, we didn't get our Christmas tree put up, I got NO papers graded and fell WAYYY behind (I think that I am finally caught up now), and just a few days ago, we finally put the suitcase away! So, you can see that I haven't had much time for stamping. I did go to my friend Becky's house on Friday and did a little stamping there. It has been hard to re-start my stampin mojo. I hope that it comes back soon!! Tomorrow night I have my stamp club with a super bunch of ladies! I can't wait to see them all again! I will show you all those projects this week as well.
Today's card comes from a layout I found on the Clean and Simple website. I love their layouts for that really "clean" look. And they are really simple but very elegant. The sketch showed an oval for the greeting but an oval just didn't look right on this card so I scrapped that part and made up my own. Actually, I stamped the 'friend' onto the card and it came out really crooked! YIKES! I hate it when that happens! So, I stamped it again on a scrap piece then trimmed it up to glue over my mistake. I don't think it looks too bad. Thanks for stopping by and not giving up on me. It's a crazy time of year and I hope to keep up. So, keep checking back and have a great day!!
