Thank You & Update

Hi everybody! I'm finally back with a fun card I created using products from Gina K Designs. The stamps are from the latest Stamp TV Kit, called Bold and Blooming. I love the style of these flowers and leaves. The sentiment is nice and bold, which I also adore. The recipient gets the message, right away!

I used my Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor markers to add color to the image. It's been a while since I sat down to color, but I found it to be very relaxing. I needed that! I didn't try to use much shading. I'll have to work on that later.

Please accept my apologies for the long absence. Soon after moving, I went to West Virginia and stayed with my sister so we could attend the wedding shower for my son's fiance. You know me -- something almost always happens when I least expect it. Missing a step on my sister's stairwell, I went down fast, popping my knee cap, several ligaments and tendons, too. The good news is this didn't happen until after the Bridal Shower! Hurray!

I managed to fly back home the day after my fall, and I've been sitting on the couch ever since (or walking with crutches).

Time heals, and it'd better heal fast because I've got a wedding to attend in June! I am NOT walking down that aisle with crutches, a brace, or even a cane. NO WAY.  My son deserves the best I can give! I mean, just look at him! Ahhhh, a mother's pride.

Well, that's it!

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~
