Hi Everyone, thank you for your concern about my absence. I am fine just totally overwhelmed with life. I had been ill, then I flew to Edmonton to bring my grandchildren back so that their parents could get things at their end squared away for the move.

I had a wonderful time with them. You know the saying that children keep you young is so true. I think I got more fresh air in that week than I have in the past two years. We were at the beach everyday, something most of us living here just take for granted. Their parents arrived last week and I tried to be as much as a help as I could. I even held and walked the horses while they put up the electric fence. For those who do not know me that was a accomplishment, I am very nervous around large animals but they were very good with me even gave me a nice rub to indicate I was ok.

So now that my stamp room is back to being a stamp room instead of a bedroom I am slowing getting some stamping down.

My card for today uses the Hostess Set Wings of Friendship. This card was made for a challenge on Late Night Stampers. It had to be a different size that the regular cards we make. The size of my card was 6 1/2 x 5.

Ink: Soft Suede, Melon Mambo used markers to color stamp image

Paper: Razzleberry Lemonade, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede, White

Thanks for looking.

Scrappinsarah, I used the Stampin Up texture plate and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink.
