I know it's been quite a while since my last post. I have had lots of things going on in my life, not so fun stuff. My husband had major surgery the first part of May and he's been recovering this entire time. Additionally, we've been dealing with major flooding in our area. The river is 12 feet higher than the previous high water mark. Although we aren't in the affected area, we know people who are and it's heartbreaking. When the water goes down we'll know the full extent of the damage, but we already know it will be substantial. We were "fortunate" enough to escape with only a little water in our finished basement. An early morning storm came through and knocked out our power. The storm also brought 4" of rain rather quickly. So, it didn't take long for our sump pit to fill and begin to overflow. We ended up with about 1" of water down there. So, things haven't been going great....but I'm still here!!!
I thought I'd go ahead and post a card I did some time ago. It's from the retired set All About You, along with Bali Breeze DP. The card base is Tempting Turquoise. At the top I used River Rock cardstock with the Stitched background stamp. For the Scallop Punch it's Old Olive and the flowers on the letter "U" are Groovy Guava. Hope you are finding more time to stamp than I am!
