birthday {wishes}

So how have ya'll been?!  Do you realize it's been over a month since I posted last?!?!  Or did anyone even miss me?  lol

I'm really sorry I've been such a slacker on my blog {again}, but I've come to the conclusion that it's just the way it's gotta be from time to time.  *BIG sigh*  As everyone knows, there aren't any do-overs in life, and sometimes stamping and blogging need to take a back seat...for me anyway.  I'm still hoping to find the right balance so I won't be quite so sporadic with this, but until then I hope you'll hang in there with me...if there are any of you still stopping by that is. ;)

My parents just blessed our family with a visit this past week, and of course it made Mother's Day extra special.  The only thing missing was the presence of my older kids...but at least I was able to talk with each of them that day.  How was your Mother's Day?  Did you do anything special? 

I had intended to post the Mother's Day card I made for my mom, but since I haven't transferred the pics to my computer yet, that'll have to be my next post.  I want to post it with the card my mom made for me --it's gorgeous!

The card I'm sharing here is one I made quite sometime ago but hadn't shared yet --I have a lot of those.  ;)  Hope you like it.  Oh, and the sketch I used was one by Mercy Kerin.

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!

I'm still here, and I have missed you! This is a gorgeous card - I was hungry for your creativity! Of course, now I want the Blossom nesties!

I'm glad you had a good Mother's Day and got to spend it with your Mom. What a blessing.

Absolutely gorgeous, Christi! I HAVE missed your posts, but know that there are many more important things in life beyond blogging, so I have been patiently waiting for your posts. *Ü*

I'm so glad you were able to share Mother's Day with your mom! I'm sure it made the day extra, extra special!

Hope all is going well and I'll look forward to your next post, whenever you can share!

Of course you were missed! So glad you enjoyed your Mother's Day. And glad you found some time to stamp. You card is so pretty! You have such a knack for the details Christi. The stitching, sparkles and embossing add so much! Thanks for sharing your creativity! Hugs~ Patti
