just popping in. . . .

to say that I have been extra busy for the past two weeks and haven't had time for making cards, blogging or visiting everyone!!  On top of the local stamp sale last weekend, I am now helping my daughter move and that is NOT my idea of fun.  :*)

Thought I would do a quick post and share a card of mine that was published in the July issue of  Scrap & Stamp Arts:



All stamps are Hero Arts.  The only embellishments are some tiny black pearls, also from Hero Arts.

By next week, I should be back to a more normal routine and be able to get back to making some cards and participating in a few challenges.

My heart goes out to any of you who were, or know someone who was, affected by the devastating tornado in Oklahoma! 

TFL.

This is lovely. The black gems are the perfect touch. Bless you for helping your daughter move; been there, done that! Have paint brush, will travel.

I, too, ache for those people in Oklahoma but I'm amazed anyone survived such a storm.
