Missed U All So Much!

Where oh where did our summer go?! They say "time flys when you're having FUN", but let me tell you it hasn't been all fun, it's been mostly work around here! The good news is that we finally finished painting our house...which included some siding repair, washing windows, new shutters, landscaping, etc, etc. We've been procrastinating about this project for a couple years, so it really needed to be done. Now that it is, we can relax a bit and get back to our favorite hobbies. :)

I've missed stamping and cardmaking SO much and I've especially missed all of you dear friends! Several of you, bless your hearts, have contacted me to see if I was still alive and happily I am! Honestly, I had no intention of abandoning my blog reading and posting for such a loooong time, but most of our "free" time has been spent working on the house. We've got a few projects planned for the inside now...painting, new flooring in the bathrooms, etc...but MW (Mr Wonderful) really needed a break and so do I! :)

So, this afternoon I've been stamping and enjoying every minute of it! Of course, it took me awhile to get started and it may take a few more cards before I find my mojo again. :) This is one I made today to let you all know I really did MISS U! And it feels especially GREAT to be back!

BIG SMILES & warm Hugs 2 All! ~ Pam :)

Hello in Nebraska!!!! Even if you are at the other end of the state from me. Stampers are few and far between around here. I do like your cards. Simple and elegant.
Great use of colors too.
