together..

Hey everyone! Look who's decided to make an appearance. Gosh, it's been weeks since i've seen the likes of this place - or your places! I'm sorry about that. Life has been crazy. I went back and forth in my decision to let you guys know what's going on. In some ays it seems unfair not to do so, so I decided to give a snapshot of the last few months. I'm in the midst of a divorce and there have been so so many things going on. Moving, moving again, changing schools, changing schools again, and so on and so forth. Stamping has been THE last thing on my mind though I have sorely missed it. Anyway, that's what's going on here. Hopefully, the silence is over and I can get back to "Life" now...


So, it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a Color Throwdown post!! Here are this week's colors, brought to us by Danielle:




I love these colors together and the inspiration photo made me think of love. The forever kind (how ironic!) and so I decided to make a Valentine's card. Here ya go:

I love love love this tree from Papertrey Ink's Love & Marriage set. So many possibilities for it, ya know?


Well, that's it for me today.  Be sure and stop in and see what the other DT members have done and thanks for stopping in!!
