Been Gone A While...

Hello Everyone, I've been MIA and all with good reason. There is so much going on with my Dad and so much going on with life...I am back now and with plenty of things to share with you. I missed the Blog Hop with the Waltzing Mouse and I was so sad about that, but later I'll post the card anyway. I've got a funny, strange, interesting story to share with you as well. But for today, I wanted to show you a few cards I've received from my blog buddies.

This first one is so Easter card from my sweet buddy Kim. Don't you just love that big ol' chocolate bunny?Take a sec to visit her blog, you won't be disappointed. Kim has just started working with Stampin Up! and she has some really cute artwork posted. You can also view her exceptional tutorials...she does a very good job explaining things.

This next one comes from my sweet friend Risa. Her blog is a must-see! She is amazing with Copic markers and she has a wonderful sense of style. Her cards are always loaded with lots of detail and layers galore!

This is the lovely 'Thank You' card I received from my dear friend Christi. It is so very pretty and packed with detail. Click on the image to view it larger. Be sure to visit her blog as well. Not only is Christi a wonderful story teller, she is also super talented and her cards are awesome...little works of 'heart'. She also included on my card one of the paper roses I sent her for Valentine's thoughtful is that?!

I thank you so much for stopping by today. I have a lot of catching up to do! I need some inspiration to get my creative juices flowing again, so I will be visiting your blogs in the next few days. Also...make note of my e-mail address change. The new one is~

Barb, I am so glad to see you are back. I kept telling myself I needed to email you to see what is going on in your life and then life in our house would get in the way. I think of you often and have been praying for your dad and your family.

I can't wait to see what you decide to create next. Thanks for showing your blog friends the card I sent.

Barb I hope things are ok with your dad and that you find some time for yourself soon. Your friends must love you to pieces because their cards are lovely!

Such pretty cards, Barb!

Hope all is well with you. Take care, friend.

Hi Barb,
Your cards are beautiful and you are deserving of everyone! I'm been a little busy the past few weeks as well. My MIL had a heart attack and two days later my BF husband died suddenly! Now that the pace is starting to slow down, I'm slowly getting back into my routine.
Take all the time you need to get things sorted out, I (we) totally understand my friend!
