I'm baack!!!!!

Hi Everyone,

Firstly,I would like to thank all of you that have emailed me privately to see how my husband is doing after having both his knees replaced and also,how I was doing after fighting the flu for the last 5 months. I am thrilled to say that my hubby is home and doing really well, He is walking around with the aid of one cane and getting stronger every day. I'm finally starting to feel like my old self again. And, let's not forget the renovations from Hell that were supposed to last 3 weeks and lasted 4 months instead. They are finally finished except for finding a vanity and sink for my powder room. I have been trying to unpack and organize my house, on top of trying to take care of my husband and myself. Things have been very crazy hectic around here.

It is so much fun to unpack my crafts and organize them, although it's a lot of work. Every time I open up a box, I get so excited about the stuff in it. I purged a lot of paper, wool, old stamps that I donated to friends and a school. There is no way I could have kept all of the things I have accumulated over the years, and I feel so good that my things were so appreciated.

I know that I am late, but I hope that everyone had fun on Valentine's Day. Since I haven't unpacked my colouring mediums yet, I decided to make a card with the supplies I had on hand.

Can you believe that I actually designed a card without either colouring or glitter .....

To make the card, I used an embossing plate to emboss the red heart, and to cut the heart I used a Quickutz cookie cutter. The white ploka dot heart was cut with a Marvy punch and stamped with Penny Black polka dot border stamp. The large scallop was done with EK success border punch and the bauble was from Stamping Bella.

Let me know what you think about the card, and I will post more often as I unpack my stamping supplies and start stamping again.

It feels so great to be posting again.

Huge Hugs
