I'm back . . .

Did you miss me? Kaleigh and I had a fabulous time visiting family and friends in Chicago!!!!! One of the friends we visited was my dear friend Toni. We used to be neighbors when we last lived up there and she is the one who got me started in this whole stamping business in the first place by inviting me to a Stampin' UP! workshop. Years later who knew I'd enjoy the hobby so much and that'd we still be great friends despite the thousand miles between us!!! While we were there we did some shopping, and stampin of course! Today I will share with you the cards I made during our visit. Not a lot of chatter because I have *lots* to do here at home, but I'll be back soon to share some more pictures from our trip and some of the creations I am currently working on . . .
