Whew ... finally! and Blog candy

Hi Fellow 'Bloggers', Stampers and Friends!
   After spending far too many hours trying to figure out how to post pictures and links to my blog I decided to sign up for BlogsbyHeather monthly maintenance program so that I can use my time to create and share!  I have been working hard on preparing for my first Convention trip.  I was like a little girl today when my badge came in the mail ... I just wanted to hold it and hold it!  LOL 
   Since I've been missing in action for a bit I decided to return with some blog candy in celebration of my 42nd birthday yesterday!  (Shhh ... my kids think I'm still 39).  All you have to do to be entered into my drawing:
           Leave a comment = 1 entry
   Post my link = 1 entry
Follow me = 1 entry

                  Drawing will be held on July 7th!

Here are a couple of cards I made in between preparing swaps for Convention!  I love the set Thoughts and Prayers.  I've begun to use up my mounds of retired papers - focusing on Sage Shadow here. I have a file filled with photos to share since I've been unable to keep my blog updated!  Watch for more!

Welcome back to the blog. :) Hope you had a wonderful birthday. Your cards are very cute. Its fun to see how you took pretty much the same elements in the card and made two different designs. Thanks for sharing!

Happy 39th birthday! ;) I love this card, the background paper really makes the simple tree "pop".
I too have a difficult time keeping up on my blog. There's just too much going on. Good luck to you! I'll keep peeking in to see how it's going :)

I hope you had an amazing birthday with your family. I had a good time browsing through all of your posts. I didn't know what RAD kids were--very interesting. Our little guy is autistic and I'm learning a lot about that right now. It's tough isn't it?!

Take care of you and Happy Stampin'
