My sweet and dear friend, how dearly I have missed you! It has been a tough year with injuries, but I am back to the crafty world I missed so much. I believe (and hope with all of my heart) that it is for good this time, even if it's a lighter schedule. Thank you for sticking with me. I appreciate you more than I can express, Theresa.

As for your darling card, I am completely smitten! What a precious Christmas chick! (and I love that a Christmas card is part of your birthday week... it makes it extra fun!) The stamp is so sweet and I love your clever design so much. Your whimsical creations bring joy to my heart! Thank you for the inspiration, my friend. Have a beautiful night. :)

Hugs and blessings,
