It's So Good to Be Home

Hi Everyone, As much as my trip was fabulous, it is so good to be home and sleep in my own bed.  Yesterday and today it's about the piles of laundry and then it will be the pile of ironing (yes, I hear some of you gasp) but there are somethings that I maintain.  Ok, I don't iron sheets and towels, there is a limit LOL

It's been awhile since a posted a card and I am getting itchy fingers to be back in my stamping room but first things first.  At least I could start with posting a card that I did last month.

This card is a sympathy card for one of my Stampin' Up! ladies who lost her farther and her uncle on the same day and in 2 separate locations.  How tragic for her! It's bad enough to loose 1 person you love let alone 2 you love.

  2. Karen beautiful card and love the embossed oval. Very nice detail.
    The scrapbook pages look like a wonderful time was had by all. I'll inspect later with more time to enlarge them.
    I have it but haven't used it yet. Can't believe it but I've been sooo busy too. Out of the country for work and so far behind in blogland. No matter for fun or work, it's always so good to come home. Hugs.

  3. Beautiful, Karen! What a tragedy! I know your friend will appreciate your kindness...

  4. A sad occasion but a beautiful card! So very pretty and know it will be appreciated.
    (I thought I was the only one left in the world that actually ironed! LOL!)

  5. Your sympathy card is gorgeous, Karen! I am so saddened by your friend's double tragedy.

  6. Welcome home! Your card is beautiful!

  7. Your sympathy card is just gorgeous truly sad for your friend. I am sure knowing you and others are thinking of her during this difficult time will give her strength.

    P.S. Welcome home!
