Happy Monday! I hope you are having a beautiful day! I have been so very sick for the last week! I went to the doctor after not feeling well for about 3 days. I had a lovely ear infection, strep throat infection, and add to the list... THE FLU!!! Ugh!!! I never wanted to hear those 3 letters! :-( So... tonight I was joyful to actually feel good enough to sit up in a chair and stamp this joyful card!! :) The stamp is from Taylored Expressions!! :) The adorable papers in the background are from The Paper Place... I got it from Hobby Lobby. I hope you love this! Have a blessed week!!

Peace Love and Joy!

Welcome and SC407

Happy Wednesday! Welcome to my first blog post! I have loved crafting and stamping for years, but fell out of doing it when my son was born over three years ago. I hope to get back into it and do it at least twice a week when I get a chance. :)

I decided I would do the SplitcoastStampers sketch challenge today. I only had a "be merry" stamp and apple sitting on my desk since I packed most of my stuff away over a year and a half ago...which I will be getting back out. LOL! I decided that some goggly eyes and a smile would go perfect with the "be merry" stamp. LOL! I bought the apple at Michaels in the $1 bin. Can't beat that! LOL! I hope you love this card!!

Peace Love and Joy (A. Nicole)
