Phew!

This past month was undoubtedly the busiest I've ever been in my life. Two days ago, the newly married couple left for Alabama and our house is quiet once more.

Thank you all so much for your sweet comments and good wishes for Joy and Jared and for your condolences, too. Sending virtual hugs to you for your cards and emails that brought comfort to me and my family. Stampers have the biggest hearts!

Here's a sampling of some of the cards that I received:

Top row left to right: Shirley Nakaima, Judy Jung, Kiara Lee
Second row left to right: Kelly Booth, Teresa Wang, Alice Wertz

To top it off,  my dear friend Alice sent me "Key Lime", a crocheted kitty that she lovingly created to cheer me up.


Alice claims that Key Lime has an attitude, but I had a lot of fun positioning him in various positions...


I think he has a lot of character, don't you?

Thank you, dear friends, for bringing a bit of sunshine into my life! I'll be back soon with a few cards to share. Have a great weekend!
