Hello. I'm back!

Yup! My vacation week has officially ended. And it is POURING outside and just so happened to be a perfect day to stay cozy and sleep in...on our first day back to getting up at 5! HA! Well, isn't that always the way. Quite frankly, I'm okay with it because I rather enjoyed the beautiful weather during our week off. We got to spend some time outside, took the dogs for walks, and just enjoyed it! *LOVE THAT!!!!* I did a couple of photo shoots with the puppies and ended up with over 300 shots! YAY! If you want to see them, let me know. I might do a post of Maggie and Thatcher pics if you guys are interested! As for today...how about a simple, but pretty 100 Proof Press and May Arts card?
hello
It is no secret that I LOVE my doily stamp from 100 Proof Press! And...combining it with this glorious teal ribbon from May Arts is just enough to make me a very happy girl! This was actually one of my stamping royalty submissions, so I am happy to say that it went on to Operation Write Home for someone to give. That's pretty neat. Just say'n.
Hello (detail)
The little Hello stamp is from Unity and the ink is Momento. I might make more of this design with different colored ribbons to give as a set someday. I just love the simplicity and the fun bow! Bows make me smile! Just say'n. So...I was pretty out of the loop over the last week...anything exciting happen here on the interwebs? Updates, folks! I need updates! HA! I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs again! See you soon! Jingle Out!
