Hello there, strangers! I have a card here for the latest Runway Inspired challenge. I realised once I had finished that there's no stamping on this card at all which is pretty unusual for me. I was inspired by the colours and also the texture on the skirt and ended up using an embossing plate and a few dies plus some shiny paper. I'm also going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.
It feels good to be back in the Craft Cave and catching up with everyone in Blogland. I had to spend a few weeks in Boston with my mom for medical reasons. It was tough to be gone for two weeks (I sure missed my boys!) but I'm grateful we had the option to go to such a first rate hospital. Mom is doing as well as can be expected at the moment but there's still a long road of treatments ahead. Thankfully some of the treatments can be done here so we'll be home for a while. Thanks to those of you who touched base with me to see where I'd disappeared to. It really did help to lift my spirits. :) Another uplifting moment came the night before my mom's surgery. There was a pretty wild thunderstorm and then the most gorgeous double rainbow appeared. It was too close to our apartment for me to get a full picture of it but I got a few partials. We took it as a good omen and it definitely was as the results from the surgery were more positive than initially expected.
