Hi guys.
Did you think I had fallen off the face of the earth?  Nope?  Well I am back and I am hoping that things will start to get back to normal for us all.  I have missed blogging and getting to check out everyone else's blogs as well.
     You would think with all this 'down' time I would have a ton of cards to share with you. No such luck.  I literally have sat at my desk about three times in the last month.  However, I am hoping that this past weekend is a new start in the right direction for me.
     I don't want to go into the long and very irritating reasons behind my absents, so I am just going to jump into my card for today.
     I was very lucky a couple of months ago to win this very pretty stamp set from Scrapbooking Made Simple and I finally got the chance to color it up.  I am not that great at coloring any kind of animals, but I really do love how this little birdie came out.  I have a friend that just loves texture more than anything, so I pulled out a few of my favorite dies along with a beautiful embossing folder to make this card as 3D as I could get it and still get it into an envelope.  lol...
     I am going to run as I am still limited on time today, but I wish you all a great start to your week and I hope to talk to you all very very soon,
Hugs, Lisa G
