I have not been MIA-- I have been MOVING!

 Rose Wonder Sympathy Card
 the image wraps around over the top of the card to the back.  
Yup! moving-- AGAIN!  We have found a little place that is perfect for us now that the last of our kiddos are moving on to college. This move is to a much smaller place.  I really had to downsize and at one point said, "I think I am gonna give it all up."  Then my husband reminded me, that there is no way I can be happy if I totally give up my crafting.  I agreed that my creating while not the world best is part of me.  I love it so, after much turmoil, I decided that I am enjoying my card making more than my scrapping (as I do a lot more Project Life style now). I am keeping a lot of the card making stuff -- stamps and what not, and NOT giving up my Stampin' Up demoship... (so if you wanna order be sure to pop over to my website Oh and we are in the final count down for Sale-A-Bration-- also an ideal time to join my team.)

I am still moving so please bare with me as I am trying to find all my stuff still, so I can only use what is found and put away.

All this to say I finally had a chance to create something for the first time in literally weeks last night.  Unfortunately is was for a friend who has lost her hubby.  It's not the best, but it was a get back in the saddle card.
