Birthday BLAST

Hey friends!! Yep . . . I'm still around!! But, after 7 years on Mo Manning's Design Teams, I made the very difficult decision to resign my position. I want to thank Mo and my fellow Dream Teamies for a most remarkable 7 years!!! No question in my mind . . . Mo and her Dream Team are THE BEST!!!

So . . . what have I been up to?! Traveling to Arizona to watch some Spring Training baseball and to hang with 6 of our 8 grandkiddos!! Oh, and my husband and I are in the middle of simplifying and "downsizing" as we prepare to retire and relocate to South Carolina the beginning of next year!! We are overwhelmed with all that has to be done before we can move . . . but we're also craaaazy excited about this new journey of ours!!

Ya know what, though? Making art and making cards are in my blood!!! Here's my newest card creation . . .
Our sweet grandson Henry just celebrated his 4th birthday!!! So I made this for him using a digi image from Mo Manning's collection called "Blast" . . . available HERE in Mo's online store! Here's a close-up of this little cutie . . .
 And a side view . . .
 A peek at the inside . . .

Pat, your card is gorgeous. Love your coloring as usual. Glad that you are having fun traveling and spending time with your grandchildren. My son and step-son live in SC and love it so hope that you will also.
