What a week...

It's been a week, that's for sure. I don't really want to go into a lot of detail but I will just sum up by saying that we have had a death in our community, my family came to visit, and we are in the process of buying a house. I will give more details on the house later. Anyway, I say all this so that you know I didn't forget about you. I was just busy.

Today's card is for this week's Your Next Stamp challenge which was to make a shaped card. I love my top note die so it was perfect for this challenge! I pulled out Windswept Fhiona and paired her with some new Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg paper. So what do you think? It's the only card I have been able to create in over a week. Sad, huh?

Well, tomorrow is my birthday and I hope to have some more eye candy for you as well as some yummy blog candy! :D Stay tuned for that!

Here is an inside shot of today's card too.

I've been reading on a lot of blogs lately that life seems to be running away with all of us. My blogging has almost gone out the window. So sorry to hear about the death. {{HUGS}}
Can't wait to hear about the house, we've gone through the process twice and it's so fun but can be very stressful, I hope things go smooth for you guys!!
