FWF - Hello, My Friend!

Hello! It has been a looooooong time since I posted here! I'll tell you why below, but here's the card I made this week. The layout was inspired by this one at Damask Love. I thought it was just so pretty and simple!

Stamp: Unity itty bitty Hello My Friend, cardstock, burlap, Bazzill paper flowers, pearls

What, do you ask, has been keeping my away? I finished my last year of teaching, which entailed a lot of cleaning out my accumulation of 17 years of teaching materials. And then we went out of state to visit family. Then summer came with lots of berry picking, preserving, gardening and all sorts of outdoor pursuits. Since snow came, I've been working on getting the nursery ready for when the baby comes home (if you want to read our adoption story, you can find out all the details so far here). I'm still not done with that, but I'm at a good place for now. And then there's my craft room. I will eventually post before/after photos, but it has become a disaster zone the last couple of years. Now that I'm home full time, I plan to get it in shape once and for all.  :D

Okay, I think that's it for now. Have a wonderful weekend, and remember to comment on all the blogs in Unity's FWF blog hop to be entered for a prize from Unity!
