I did not fall off the face of the earth, it just seems like it from a blog perspective! :) I am so sorry, I had a conference for work that took me to Nashville, TN for a week, I took on some more consulting and a part-time job for "pay the bills/allow me to buy more Stampin' Up stuff" job, then we had a planned vacation for 10 days to Florida (celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary) and some home projects that we finally got finished and things were just crazy. No excuse and I deeply apologize to my followers!! I have some really great projects to share with you and I am back on track to create regularly!! Some more great news I guess you can see my blog has been completely renovated and redone!!! Thank you Michelle Laycock of Laycock Designs I love it, what do you all think!! Did you scroll all the way to the bottom and see the tag line about the UPS man? It is sooooo true!! :) Well down to the reason you come here, the card I am showing you today I made for my friend's birthday (Happy Birthday Renee). I will admit to you that I bought the greenhouse gala Designer Series Paper just to show since I know that some of my friends would love it, however I am loving it!
