I never thought I'd be away from my blog for so long! My dad underwent lung surgery earlier this month and had complications. He is on the mend and is even "spreading his wings" now. Again, I want to thank everyone for their prayers and concern.
I've certainly missed stamping and blogging. I have not even had time to visit my favorite blogs nor my favorite groups - I feel so out of touch! This is also the first afternoon I've had time to do any stamping. I did finish my dear hubby's valentine card today (shame on me!). I also stamped a couple of cards with my new Shy Bear stamps that I had previously ordered from Susanna.
I apologize to all who visited my blog and were disappointed! Please take a moment to look at my newest creations! It feels great to be back!
This is my belated valentine card, "First Kiss" by Sara Kay. I ordered this from Summer. The little heart charm has the word "love" engraved on it. I colored my image with my Prismacolors and used Basic Grey's Bittersweet collection for my design paper. I cut the largest heart with my Slice and the small hearts and heart border were punched with Martha Stewart punches.This cute little bear is "Daisies Shy Bear". I am in love with these guys! Dh said this looked very "Fallish", but I loved the butterflies with the daisies. The design paper is from Basic Grey's Ambrosia collection. The image is colored with Copic markers and Ialso used black stickles on the nose and eyes (although they don't show up in the picture!).
