Birday Tweets

Hello friends.....I took a little "leave of absence" from my card designing.  I needed/wanted to spend time with family, friends and time on the coast.  I also needed to figure out how to find time for exercising to strengthen my back and knees.  I'm putting in no less than 6 miles a day, weight training, floor climbing and swimming weekdays which has left little time in the day for crafting.  Anyhoooo..... I spend evenings visiting so many awesome blog posts, but just haven't commented.  A wonderful way to end a very tiring day!  Thank you all!  I will be back on track very soon.

I forgot to post this on the due date.  So sorry!  Isn't she the cutest and I love the sentiment.  I made this legal size...something I don't do enough of these days.  You can find Sally Letter Illustration at Paper Creator.  She comes with many options.

  5. Cely, this is so adorable! Really miss your wonderful cards but taking time for you is very important. As soon as I get through the Bugaboo challenges I'm taking a break. I have medical tests to go through next week so I won't have much time to craft either. Love the sweet image here. Hope you are feeling better very soon. Happy weekend.

  6. I'm working harder to keep my fitbit goal to strengthen too. I'm no where near your stamina, but I'm not giving up! Sweet card with such lovely additions (balloons and birdies). I also like this size!
