A New Year, A New Card

Hello and I'm so glad to see you visit here again! As promised, I have a new card to share with you this weekend. I recently purchased my very first "There She Goes" stamp set and the set that I used for this card is called "Puppy Love". There are so many cute puppies and dogs with coordinating sentiments to this set, that you cannot go wrong with it! I loved coloring the little dogs with my Copic Sketch Markers and blending them to bring out their whimsical little faces. Pictured below, is the coordinating card interior.

A Little Under the Weather

Good Morning! I just want to share with my faithful followers (I love you so much!) that I'm taking a very short break due to medical issues. It is nothing life-threatening but it is a pressing matter that needs immediate attention, so I have to take a short break for a few days...I'm not sure how many days but less than 2 weeks, I'm thinking. I hope that you won't lose interest in visiting me here because of this, but I understand if you do, since I took a 2 week break during the Christmas holidays and now this...but I do hope that you'll keep me in mind in 2 weeks...Prayers always welcomed! Thank you so much!
