A Little Birdie.....FMS537

 



There's a lot happening on this card but somehow it works for me.  I love the sweet bird and I love that floral DSP - together they make a great team and a sweet note card!

There has been a lot happening in my world these past few months as well.  I am happy to report that my Bell's Palsy has resolved but I had a reaction to the steroids I had to take.  It has taken a while for my system to readjust to "normal".  There has been a lot of napping!  I am doing much better but have decided to take a break through the summer.  So I am stepping back from FMS until fall.  I'll be popping in with a card now and then so I won't be completely gone!  Our summers are too short here in upstate New York so the plan is to kick back and enjoy the next few months!





I love Judy's funky sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you join us!

Have a good rest. Life can be very hectic at times so put your feet up and enjoy cuppa tea and the sunshinve.

So glad the palsy has resolved. My sister's never did. I totally understand the need to take a step back and just enjoy life and those around you. I will miss seeing your amazing cards each week, but know I can find you and see them now and again on Fusion!! Please take care and keep in touch in the group!!

And this is the cutest little bird scene!!

Your work is always beautiful and inspiring. But yes, take care of yourself and enjoy the resting this summer. This card is so cute and well made as always! It is an example of using that "busy but beautiful" DSP and achieving a clean and simple look! Thank you
