Taking Life's Journey

Hi All My Crafty Friends,

I wanted to apologize for being gone for a while, I've had a family emergency come up and it has taken me about a week and a half to kind of get my family back to normal.
So at this time I would like to say a big Thank You to all of those who left me sweet comments on my projects and to my Crafty Friends (Followers) and New Crafty Friends (Followers) for all your sweet comments and signing up for my birthday giveaway.  I really enjoyed reading everyone's comments it made me so happy. I apologize for not sending out responses to your comments like I normally do, however I plan on sending a Thank you. As of now I just Thank the Lord that my daughter is fine.
Thanks again for dropping by.

Here is my card - I didn't want to add to much to the from because the paper is so pretty and the flower was already embossed and set with glitter. I fussy cut my image and used pop ups so she stands out. Did a little fold down in the corner, I've this before but this is my first time doing this. (I think, can't remember)lol
