A Long Absence

So, for those of you still coming to my blog, you may have noticed my long absence. It is hard for me to believe that I haven't blog since last Friday(the 13th...told you that day would be unlucky). Lots of MAJOR changes have taken place in my life in the last week, and I won't lie and say that it hasn't directly affected my mojo. I am not quite ready to talk about it publicly yet, but when I am ready, trust me, you all will be the first to know. Today is the first time I have stamped since last Friday, and although I felt a little out of practice, it felt SO GOOD to get back to my table. I have taken a tiny break from my Design Team work, but I am lucky to work for and with the most AMAZING people in the world, and I think they know I can't WAIT to get back in the swing of things...in fact, I don't think it will be long. I made this card for my Mom to give to a friend of hers. She just got accepted into Nursing School and my Mom is super proud of her. I just hope she likes the card, LOL. Today, when I saw the featured stamper was Beate, I was super excited and a little shocked....I still can't believe that she hasn't been the FS before, can you? Anywho, I decided to CASE this card of hers. I changed the colors, DP, added a few layers, changed the images, and added wide ribbon instead of the scalloped piece. I liked the bird theme, so I decided to use my A Little Birdie Told Me set from SU. I paper pieced the birds with some East Coast Prep DP and then used my C2 Copic marker to make the shadow. All the accessories are from SU, as well as everything else..although the paper is sadly retired.
Well, that is it for me now...I need to get some more stamping done so I can preset my blog for the week!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day...I missed you guys!!
