Thank You

Thank You . . . for being patient in my blogging absence.  It has been CRAZY in my life.  Ok, maybe it isn't fair to say crazy.  Maybe wild?  No.  Well . . . maybe I should just say that things in my offline life needed priority over my online life.  Yeah, that is how I can best explain it.

But, I am back.  Well, maybe.  I am having a hard time prioritizing some things in my life at the moment and it only makes sense that card making and blogging take a backseat when they need to.  So, if you will bear with me, I will be somewhat spotty probably over the next year.  (*EEK!  As I run and put my head under a pillow*)  Let me share my card and then if you really care, I will explain below.

All supplies Papertrey Ink unless noted - Stamps: Big and Bold Wishes, Fall Tags 2009; Ink: Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate; Paper: Rusic White, Pure Poppy; Other: Vintage Cream Button, Dark Chocolate Baker's Twine

What is news with me . . . I am glad you asked.  Here is the headlines in no particular order:  After almost 3 years, 2 miscarriages, and much healing, I am putting my faith out there and saying that this is the year we are going to get pregnant with our 3rd child and having a happy, healthy baby.  My husband has officially made a job change for the better as of the first of the year after a long autumn and winter of unfortunate events.  We are in the process of buying 10 acres, building our "dream house", and moving to the country (and if you know me, the city girl, you know I could write a book about that alone).  We are getting ready to put our house on the market to sell (Read: Lots of cleaning, lots of organizing, and lots of packing).  I have two school age children that I love and adore and that I pour my life into every chance that I get by spending time, volunteering at their school, shared experiences, and lots of hugs and LOTS of love.

Cute card, Le Ann! I just a very similar Valentine like this using a circle image from 2010 Love Tags.

Good luck with all your plans for 2011! Sounds like lots of exciting things in store!

Welcome back, LeAnne! What an entrance! Love the card. The bright red and white just scream......."Look at me, I'm back"....Love the touch of the little button, too! I'll be looking forward to seeing many more of your creations.

Gorgeous card LeAnn! I really like the apples stamped in that pattern. I'll have to give that a try.

I'm so sorry to hear about the miscarriages. Good for you for taking that leap of faith and proclaiming out loud that this will be the year for your 3rd child! God is good:)
