Where in the world???

Hi All,

Well I took a real long blog hiatus. I had to do some real hard thinking about what I wanted from this stamping adventure and how to get it! I am happy to say I have made some changes and I think they are amazing!!! I am so happy with the new adventures on the horizon and stamping is fun again! I took to heart something a talented friend said, "stamping has to be fun and without change there would be no butterflies!" That stuck and with some great support I made the leap and a wonderful change! I have had some wonderfully supportive friends throughout this journey and you all know who you are! Thanks from the bottom of my heart for bringing such joy and fun to my life! I never stopped stamping during my long break from blog world so I have lots of great things to share! Nothing worth doing is easy but in the end it was the best decision for me and I am happy! So on to the sharing.

This card I made as a thank you card and I love it! You could use it for many different occasions though, birthday, thinking of you, anniversary, and more! The brights color family is my favorite and I almost always start there, but this card stayed there and I think it was soooo cute. I saw a card similar to this last summer (I don't know who did it, but if you do let me know and I will give credit where credit is due!) and after the butterfly comment I thought it was perfect!! The base is Melon Mambo though the picture sure doesn't look like it, however I got a light box for photographing cards and projects so hopefully that will all change now!! Here are all the details:

Paper: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Tempting Turquoise (inside sentiment)
Stamps: Thank You Kindly (inside stamp)
Accessories: Big Shot, Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Dies (2 butterflies for each color).

It is a simple card but so pretty. I try to mail lots of my cards so I try to keep the thickness manageable so the card arrives safely and in tact. I hope you like the card and I am going to be posting more regularly and I look forward to being back!!

Thanks so much!!
