SFYTT BELLA THOUGHTS and PRAYERS

It's been almost a week since I've posted ... or stamped for that matter. Between the day job, out-of-town company, and preparing for an upcoming class there's been no time for stamping or blogging. I spent most of yesterday cutting paper for Monday's stamp class, and got to stamp a little last night. Boy, was I rusty! It took me forever to get this design to come together!

I used Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try, Thoughts and Prayers and Bella Birds DP. I wonder why they named this designer paper Bella Birds, anyway?! There's not a single bird in the design!

I hope to be stamping and posting again regular
ly after Monday's stamp class, as I am on Spring Break this week! woohoo! I'll also be back tonight with another selection of iPICKS!

I actually was wondering where you were! But I get that, life sometimes takes over! This is lovely Nancy, I am so on the fence about this set as I have tree ones I hardly use but it is such a great sympathy set! Glad you are back!
