Surprise, Surprise ~~ It's me!

Well, it's been a long time since I've had any interest in creating cards or posting, but I think I'm back. While my recovery has been nothing short of a miracle, my head just wasn't into thinking about making cards or posting. Ladies, I didn't even shop, much, online for goodies or read any of my favourite sites. That had me more worried than anything else. But, finally, last night I was reading some posts and found out that a very dear friend is having a birthday. She has been so thoughtful, kind and caring that I wanted to make a card for her. I went downstairs (yes, I know, I can do stairs now), into my new craft space (pictures to come soon) and made a card. I'm not naming any names because it's going in the mail tomorrow, but I wanted to let you all know that I'm BACK! Here's the card.




The base is that delicious new colour, Berry Sorbet, from Papertrey Ink, as is the lovel Swiss Dot ribbon, also in Berry Sorbet. The stamps are Studio G clear stamps which were inside a Get Well card I received from Ellie. I used the Swiss Dot CB embossing folder on PTI Select White and a Prima flower with a silver brad to complete the look. I hope my friend likes the card.

And, may I say once more, thank you to everyone for all the good wishes and all the prayers. I'm positive that the prayers have cut down the recovery time considerably. I'm still going to physio, but was told on Thursday that a discharge date is being considered within a couple of weeks. This journey has been an absolutely amazing one, and I'm so greatful to everyone who prayed for me. Thank you all, so very much.
